Probably the single most important tool you should have in your survival gear is a knife. And not any ordinary knife. I’m talking bout a heavy duty blade with a tang that extends into the handle. Made from high quality stainless or carbon steel. A good knife blade should have some thickness to it and not flex and should make you feel like a Bad-Ass when you’re holding it. ^__^
With a good survival knife you can cut tree limbs to start a fire, use for constructing shelter, prepare game that you have caught and most importantly defend yourself from enemies. Is probably why we’ve been using knife-like tools since the Stone age roughly 2 and a half million years or so. haha.
