    Cool Survival Item

    My knife, of course. With my knife I can find a spark producing rock and start a fire, make a spear and snares for food.

    If I couldnít have another person Iíd want a big dog that can hunt but Iíd want something living so I donít end up talking to a volleyball named Wilson Though a machete or lighter would be useful I wouldnít be as calm as Iíd be with a person, especially if that person has skills that I donít. But a dog would help to considering how many uses they have.

    Actually I thought it was a soccer ball, but you're right, They are usually inflated. ;>) However, if we're restricting the question to "inanimate objects" what would you choose? Remember, it's just you and the elements.

    my leatherman. With it I have made fire, made traps, shelter, and fishing gear.

    One thing I would like to see come out is a leatherman with a flint/steel built in.

    A machete or one of those water bottles with a built in filter, depending on the terrain and climate Iím in.

    Good choice. I have a short-bladed machete called the Colt Jungle Commander.
    According to the text that was with the ad it claimed this was a proto-type for the Navy Seals. I'll probably only use it in an area of thick brush. I am looking into Ontario's RTAK-II, it has a 10 inch blade that could double as a machete and Brigade Quartermasters has it at a price of $89.99. They also carry the RAT-7 which is an outstanding knife but carries a shorter blade. I'm thinking of double teaming the RTAK-2 with Gerber's LMF Combat knife (about $79.00) and trying to find a double knife sheath for it similar to the one carried by John D. McCann, author of "Build The Perfect Survival Kit."

    My knife, would probably be the thing, make it easy to defend my self, make a hand drill, and catch food when needed.

    You honestly dont want a knife that big. Trust me on this one. But if one is truly skilled being in a situation without anything should be no problem, and if one is truly intelligent they would never be in a situation where they have nothing.

    If I was in the south American rainforest id want a Machete. The Machete in the photo I was using as an example of a saw-back, I wasnít saying that was the one I wanted. I do like the idea of a shorter blade machete because Iím afraid id be clumsy with a long one. But a little bowie knife isnít going to get me far in impenetrable jungle. In post #8 I mentioned it would depend on the terrain and climate Iím in, obviously I wouldnít use it in the desert or grassland terrain.

    Of course it would be a knife. But which one? For me it would be a longhunters style knife, homemade from an old American made file.

    The knife with a rocks sparks great. Looks like an old butcher knife. Why American steel, because foreign made files just plain suck for sparks.

    I don't think it's a matter of intelligence, just re-programing to "Be Prepared."

    For a young lady alone it'd probably be pretty good protection from the bad "human" element.
