    i think that the word survival and primitive skills or bushcraft get intertwined to often, what most of us on this forum seem to be interested in is bushcraft, i think that most of us could survive a situation for 72 hours which is on average as long as it takes search and rescue to find us dead or alive, but yes even in a true survival scenario i would want the easiest method to conserve time and energy, if i had a lighter i would definitely use it to my advantage, the piece of mind that i carry with me into the bush is that i have my bushcraft skills so should my lighter fail i would not frett because i would have alternate ways of producing fire.


    always be prepared

    I agree. Most of us are interested in bushcraft. Thats the best because knowledge weighs nothing.

    I guess I agree with WE but where do you draw the line? Skills are skills. If you choose to live in suburbia and play in the woods that doesn't make you less qualified to live off the grid. Those that do live off grid simply have the experience to go with the knowledge (uh, not discounting that experience, by the way). Most of them lived in suburbia at one time or another and migrated to that life style.

    So, to Smok's question, I don't see this as just a primitive forum. I don't see it as just an anything forum. I've picked up ideas and knowledge from you folks that allow me to better prepare my self and my home for a natural disaster, for example. Nothing primitive or wilderness about that. I hope I've shared some ideas as constructive along the short way.

    In any case, I don't think it is as much about where you use your skills as it is about having the skills to use and being able to adapt them (and yourself) to the environment you find yourself in. Mother Nature isn't a bad lady. She isn't anything. She just is. It's all about taking the responsibility to learn and practice the skills necessary to deal with her on her terms. Ready Sarge? It's about being prepared.

    Hello guys,
    Regarding to this topic...
    Few hours of free time, an Opinel Carbon no 9, a piece of cherry wood laying around... Let's make a net shuttle...
    I newer tough that the back of the Opinel is so great in finishing (scraping) the wood, to smooth down edges...
    Any opinions about the result?
    PS (sorry my horrible English, please correct me if I wrote something wrong, or the sentence has a spooky structure)
