The survival pocket knife is a great technological tool that can be used for both fishing (cutting the line and hook from a fish’s jaws) and hunting (skinning an animal), but it can be used for many other ways as well, working as a universal tool to enhance camping life.
The first use is that pocket knives can be used as a tool for digging. The knife can work as a shovel to dig out edible tubers, disposal of human waste, and excavating pits of fire. The digging tool can also be used to carve distress signals in both dirt and snow for such an emergency.
The second use is as a weapon to use for fishing and hunting. While it probably wouldn’t be a great idea to take down a wolf with a knife, like Liam Neeson’s movie, Gray, it can be used for hunting small game and fishing. The third use is as first aid assistance by cutting bandages and draining blisters.
The survival knife can be used as a tool of various uses such as a hammer. When hammering objects you would use the butt end of the knife that is handy for stakes to hold up shelters. A gear adjustment is another task a pocket knife can be used for when it comes to modifying clothing, equipment, and gear. Use the knife as a stake if there is an absence of other materials that can be used to anchoring shelter or a food bag in the tree’s canopy out of a bear’s reach.
Survivalist knives are great technologies, not only due to the list above, but can be a tool that creates other tools. Do you need to make a fire bow and drill? With a survivalist knife you can use it to carve and sharpen points when there are no other materials around. The last use is that one can build a fire from a pocket knife by cutting ribbons of inner bark to be used for “tinder.” Also, a knife’s sharp edge against an abrasive object as tree bark can spark a fire.
