Re: Knives
I completely agree on using small, folding knife (or supertool). Most often it will fit all the needs.
But when I go solo, especially overnight I always carry a real KNIFE. I fix it on a shoulder, to the pack strap so it doesn't get in the way. It somehow gives a great deal of self confidence. I feel like having the warm cloths and the knife alone I already have good chances of survival being everything else lost. Besides, I was raised under perception not to even question taking the knife into the woods (especially in places where people pose a bigger thread than animals).
