Thread: Survival walking staff, again

    Default Survival walking staff, again

    Hello all--

    I know this subject has been done to death but I had a few questions and a need of ideas for a survival/walking/hiking staff. I am looking for a modular (three piece) staff that is able to be broken down for easy transport when not being used. I am looking for it to be hollow to carry some basic survival kit: Swiss knife, matches/flint/steel, cotton/tinder, fish hooks, trash bag/poncho/ground cover etc. I would also like to mount a spear/knive at one end for fishing/hunting.

    I have visited numerous websites and manufacturers including:

    http://www.crawfordknives.com/SURVIV...20PAGE%201.htm

    All look to be cool, but have some serious flaws. The Crawford staff looks expensive and flimsy. The Wilderness Survival Staff is made from plumbing style pipe and is heavy. I have read of one person who used bamboo (already hollow) and my experiments with this material have all broken very easily.

    So I am back to looking for more suggestions! I am planning to try another prototype with a simple broomstick and a long drill bit to hollow out the top handle. I am also looking to use a AR-15 bayonet mount to allow the attachment of a bayonet, although I am unsure how to properly attach this. JB weld to a metal bracket? I was planning to wrap the handle with some cordage (5 mil spectra).

    I figured that if anybody would have any good ideas or suggestions, it would be the people on this forum!

    Any tips, pics, links to rants are welcome!

    Thanks!

    Sounds like your looking for a titanium staff? threaded and in three sections? I like the idea...I'd say your going to need to go to the local machine shop.
    Keep in mind the problem may be extremely complicated, though the "Fix" is often simple...

    I think I would try the carbon one. Not carbon:
