A butane lighter or waterproof wooden matches in a plastic zip bag can serve as an easy flame source in dry, calm weather but...

A Purchase Boot Knife with a five-inch blade is the best choice. Choosing the right knife for you, however, can be nearly mind-boggling. While you could easily pay several hundred dollars for a top-notch survival knife, there are adequate knives available for...
