Here are a few pics from a recent adventure/challenge.
The idea was to provide water, shelter,fire and food with just the aid of a large knife.
I choose the Kabar Cutlass and Big Ken choose the Martindale Paratrooper.
Interestingly we obtained fire from Sitka Spruce roots including cordage using friction fire. Water was collected and boiled in a Spruce Bark container. And we ate Spruce inner bark amongst other foraged foods. Lastly we built our shelter from spruce boughs. Did you know Spruce could be so helpful?
