“If you go to town you need money to buy food, if you go to the jungle you just need a knife”
My thoughts – I heard this on a TV documentary speaking to people still connected to their ancestral past in Asia, it’s a very true statement however it assumes that you know how and what to do with the knife, these are skills that need to be practiced.
I carry a knife around daily and use it at least four times a day for different things, from wood cutting, box opening, wire stripping, to cutting a loose thread on clothing. Govenment and media have portrayed knife carrying as bad due to the very small minority of people who are idiots and let’s face it,would have done damage with whatever they have to hand, and of cause we all have to suffer the consequences of their actions!
I loved Crocodile Dundee! I have to watch that movie again since its been awhile. There are probably a few good survival tips in there, hey? I carry a multi tool with me, and I use it daily–usually the needle-nose pliers, and…the knife! It’s not as good of a knife as Mick Dundee’s, but it’s still very useful, and it hasn’t attacked anyone yet. 😉
