Southeast Wilderness Survival
Basic Knife Skills
In the bush a knife can be one of your very best friends, and they are useful for much more than opening freeze-dried meals and spreading peanut butter. Owning the skills to use a knife effectively can not only enhance any wilderness experience but in extreme situations can mean all the difference between working on improving a very bad situation or struggling to survive it at all. The ability to use a knife to its full potential will allow you to; quickly construct shelter from the surrounding organic materials, more efficiently craft fire even in extreme weather, fashion tool, traps, and utensils that can improve the current quality of life, and process and foods in the field.
