Well, I was strolling through the ‘Academy’ sporting goods store which is new in my area, just to see what they have. Nice place, broad appeal for athletic and outdoor activities. Things are a little pricey, for a cheapskate like me, though. As I’m walking down their knife isle, out of their large selection I spot “Smith & Wesson” on some knife packaging, so I thought ‘wonder if they’re anywhere near the quality of their revolvers’ (one of my main concealed carry weapons). Only one way to find out.
So, I’m home with my new toy and start looking it over.
I chose this ‘tanto blade‘ version, because I believe the typical drop point knife has a better chance of breaking off the tip under adverse use or abuse that could be encountered in a survival situation. This version would be highly resistant to that particular failure.
This knife has the full length tang blade, very thick (about 1/4″) and robust spine. The blade was razor sharp right out of the package. The handles are removable, if you just have to, by removing the handle screws with a torx blade screwdriver as you can see here.
You’ll also notice the lanyard hole in the end and lashing points on the finger guard, making it easy to accomplish a makeshift spear, should the need arise, by lashing the knife to a stick, and other purposes. In the picture below, you can see the bottom of the sheath comes with a length of paracord to secure the sheath to your leg. This could be used for that spear idea or other lashing, if you didn’t bring your own 50′ length of paracord, which should have been in your bugout bag.
This is no lightweight toy, measuring almost 12 inches, and weighing in at almost 2 pounds with the sheath and accessories this one was packaged with.
The specs, per the package are: 7Cr17 high carbon stainless steel blade, G-10 overlay handle, full tang with lanyard hole, ballistic nylon sheath and diamond sharpening stone. The sheath is very versatile with velcro and snaps all over the place. The pouch for the stone is removable and usable alone, leaving a nice strip of velcro on the sheath for adding whatever else you may wish instead of the sharpening stone pouch. When attached to the sheath, the stone pouch has it’s own velcro backing and little velcro straps that go around to the back side of the sheath where another velcro strap with a snap at the top lays down over the pouch straps. The stone pouch was roomy enough for me to add a spare firesteel sparker in with the stone.
One more detail, the spine of the blade has a sawtooth cut beveled to the centerline of the blade to help with sawing through bone or wood as needed. That, too, is quite sharp.
Here’s a link to some guy giving this knife the kind of hell you should demand that a survival knife be able to take without failure or complaint. It’s typically amateurish filming of youtube style, but at about the 9 minute mark, he’s pounding the blade deep into a sideways 2 x 4 board with a hammer and prying sideways with the blade driven into the wood. That’s the kind of abuse you expect the knife to survive and where the drop point style blade could very well break off the tip. This blade will replace the trusty old M1 carbine bayonet I have been packing for years in my BOB.
Buy the basic knife at your favorite big box store or here at Surviving Urban Crisis Supply Store.
Let’s talk first aid today.
Everyone should already have guessed that a well stocked prepper supply inventory would include adequate first aid gear and supplies, right? We need to tailor those supplies to our family’s general and individual needs, paying particular attention to life saving or sustaining prescription drugs that we may find in short supply after a massive crunch to modern society. As for my needs, I’m stuck with taking anti-arrhythmic (spastic heart rhythm thing) drugs on a daily basis. To slowly stockpile a quantity of this medication, I’ve worked in discussion with my cardiac doc about my ‘survival concerns’, so that he’s prescribed about 20 % more pills than I actually have to take during a month. So, eventually I’ll have a sufficient quantity to last a few months, with appropriate rationing. I have also ‘experimented’ with other medications (I’ve got a bucket full of meds I used to take for this heart condition) by taking a half dose of the morning pill(s) two or three times a week. Many medications action on your body is spread out, time wise, so that an entirely missed dose, occasionally, has little or no effect on controlling the condition at least in my situation. DO NOT assume this is ‘safe’ or advisable for ‘all’ situations of persons on medications!! I am NOT a doctor and I’m only pointing out what I did, being fully aware of any “risks” involved. Do this at your own risk. OK, that takes care of the mandatory ‘legal disclaimer’ one must note at times like this. A ‘safer’, but much slower, approach is to cut pills for Tuesday and Friday mornings in half as I mentioned. This keeps your medicine levels more stable, while adding slowly to your stash. On another note, medications, like canned foods, have an ‘expiration date’ on them. This, like the food ‘sell by’ dates, in my opinion, are more of a ‘freshness’ date than some kind of dire warning. I’ve used migraine headache meds that are a little more than a year past that date, with no ill effects and the meds worked about as well as they did in the first place.
Now, on to the substitutions part. It’s inevitable that in case of societal collapse, with food riots (and good old general looting for fun and big screen TV’s) having cleaned out the markets, and very likely the pharmacies as well, that even our well stocked first aid kits will run out of band-aids. What to do now? OK, assuming you still have adhesive tape and some sterile gauze, cut a strip of tape long enough to do the job of covering the cut and a strip of gauze about one inch wide and with sanitized hands fold the gauze into a little strip as wide as the tape. Press the gauze onto the tape at about the center, apply a little antiseptic and cover the cut. All out of antiseptic? Use honey. For centuries, ‘folk medicine’ around the world has known that honey works nicely as an antiseptic.
Got a sprained ankle and no ‘ace’ bandage? Well, put a clean sock on the foot (not a short sport sock, a regular one) and use duct tape to make a medium stiff boot kind of thing to compress and stabilize the ankle. Don’t wind the tape too tight, you want support, NOT a tourniquet! You should use the tape over a sock so the skin can breathe while taped up AND so that loads of skin and hair don’t get ripped off when the tape is removed. Also, some people don’t react well to prolonged exposure to the sticky glue on duct tape. Duct tape could also be used in conjunction with some flat wooden splints to deal with a fractured limb. Again, cover the skin with a sock with the end cut out or some kind of fabric like a shirt sleeve or whatever, and slide up the arm / leg so the tape isn’t in actual contact with the skin. Some folks also consider duct tape when making the substitute band-aids as I described above.
Bottom line, we should all have some degree of basic first aid, particularly the ‘wilderness’ first aid kind of knowledge. If you can deal with that level of first aid, you’ll have a far better chance at surviving urban crisis.
Back some time ago, I posted my opinion for survival knives in another of my ‘tested gear‘ posts. Other edged tools useful and even vital to our survival in the wilds (be it in the deep woods, or suburbia, after the SHTF) will also need their business ends worked over now and then to keep the efficiency and usefulness of the tool to the maximum. For instance, skinning game or chopping trees with dull tools is much more work than with sharp tools. So, this post will cover my personal choice for knife sharpening as the primary coverage, then I’ll add some other tools that look very promising and versatile to also consider.
Once upon a time I made a video demonstrating my Lansky Sharpening System , but then I reconsidered for 2 excuses. First, OPSEC (operational security, or keeping your privacy) then, I sound, to myself, rather like ‘Leave it to Beaver‘ big brother Wally as I ramble on.
Now, if you remember that bit of Americana TV trivia, you too, are an ‘ol’ geezer’.
So, I ventured forth to Youtube and sifted through the endless pile of videos out there and found one, apparently put out by Lansky, that properly demonstrates the use of the kit.
This USA made product has a minor secret to get such fantastic edges on blades, in that it has angle guides to keep one consistent as the sharpening procedure goes along. With about 8 or 10 minutes effort, going from a dull blade to a better than razor-sharp one is straightforward and simple. You can literally transform a blade that will barely peel a potato to one that will slice a sheet of notebook paper end to end while you hold it in the air. I have also used my Lansky kit to save a blade that had about 1/4″ broken off the spear point tip. Using the coarsest stone, and the upper angle guide slots, in about 15 minutes work, I had transformed the tip back to a functioning sharp point. It was a different shape, of course, because of the missing material of the original tip.
The limitations of the Lansky system sharpener is the length of blade it will handle and is limited pretty much to knife blades. A 6 or 7 inch blade is about the limit, unless you want to try it in segments. If this is all you require, you can’t do much better.
Another interesting looking sharpening tool is the “WorkSharp Guided Field Sharpener”
The WorkSharp also has ‘guides’, but they only start you out at the proper angle as you begin a stroke with your blade that needs work. You must make the follow through freehand. I have not personally tested this one, but the added versatility of dealing with axes, hatchets, larger blades and fish hooks is well worth considering. I value any survival tool with multiple functions, and when the tool does them all well, even more so.
As far as hatchets, axes and machetes, they too can be made sharp enough to split a sheet of paper held in the air. They may be sharpened very effectively with just a good file. The key to hand sharpening a tool in any case, is to maintain the proper angle towards the blade edge as you sharpen the tool. Using the proper method to sharpen an axe shown here is the safe and effective way to get a razor-sharp edge using sharpening stones. Now, that my friends is a sharp little axe! Using axes, hatchets or other tools sharpened to this degree, or even a dull tool for that matter, can easily take off a finger tip, a whole finger or give a life threatening or fatal in the wilds wound to a careless or distracted operator. BE CAREFUL.
You can split small diameter wood with your survival knife. This technique is known as ‘batoning’ for unknown reasons, as you don’t twirl anything or whatever. The full tang knife just needs to be longer than the wood diameter. You must also have a REAL survival knife, not a $9.95 hollow handle phony baloney “survival knife” passed off onto rookies, and you must ONLY strike the back of the blade to drive it through the wood.
This post will cover a pretty well done ‘combat’ arms training video for those out there that are curious about the good old AK-47 used as a simple combat weapon.
Yeah, I can hear you AR-15 diehards moaning already. We’ll get to your ‘side’ in another post. Available in DVD format, Kalashnikov Rifle Gunfighting , by Gabe Suarez, gives you some great tips, techniques and explanations on using this battle tested weapon. I’ll give you fair notice however, that the price on this DVD has SKYROCKETED since I bought my edition a couple years ago. So, if you can borrow a copy, rent it, find it used, by all means go for it. It appears, just like a vast range of self defense items, weapons, etc, the current administration’s anti-gun rights agenda has jacked up the price here as well.

In my opinion, survival gear should be as robust as possible for durability, because you don’t want an item breaking in a survival situation. You want it as simple to operate as possible. The more versatility the thing has, the more value it has. And in the category of survival stoves and cooking gear, I find the Kelly Kettle places well in all these criteria.
The Kelly Kettle has a long history in Ireland, way back to the 1890′s, the design basically unchanged although the material of construction has changed to lightweight aluminum. Seems the concept came from the Kelly family’s venture as fishing guides, brewing up hot tea for their customers around Lough Conn, which is famous for its free rising brown trout and fresh run Salmon from the River Moy system. They would gather up sticks, twigs, dry grass and have a quart of water boiling very quickly, even during a storm! And that feature is key, operating with found fuel, anything that burns will boil the water, thereby allowing you to be free of the extra burden and limited run time of ‘fancy’ high tech, but very nice and pricey camp stoves. Even the super high tech multi-fuel stoves that can run on almost any liquid that will burn, one must still track down the liquid fuel sources which may require long (and potentially hazardous) treks. And by the nature of being so high tech, they have some delicate parts which, if broken in the wilds, will render the thing as useful as a rock. They do work well, no knocking there, for backpacking. I’m just talking long term, harsh conditions survival where one isn’t depending on hiking back to the nearest store for some more fuel. So, in my opinion, Kettles work well on whatever you find to burn, solving the fuel supply problem. Similarly, wood fueled folding camp stoves are also along that same idea, but must have a dry, covered spot to start the fire when it’s raining, in most cases, because the design would let rain be a serious problem to deal with getting the fire going and keeping it alive without a pot on top to keep the rain out.
The base model Kelly Kettle doesn’t have any cooking kit with it at the starting price, but they do offer the cooking accessory kit with all their units. This makes it a complete system, so that you may boil water and get dinner started at the same time. Having your own cooking kit already can save you some money, just needing the chimney pot holder possibly. Since survival means getting the most back from every calorie of energy expended, you’re not going to find this system easy to beat.
My model is the ‘trekker’, the smallest of the units they make, as you see here with the cooking accessories which include the small skillet / pot lid, the pot, the upper chimney pot support, the grill and the pot gripper. For an individual or two people, this is a great choice. Using the hollow interior, you can pre-pack some kindling and a few sticks if you’re expecting downpours from the day’s weather. Due to the soot buildup inside the appliance, extra wood is about all I would consider packing in there. One could fill the unit with water and put in the cork for travel, but personally, I’m a bit leery of trusting that cork not to leak during the trip and soak the contents of my bug out bag. But it would work great, as it’s intended to, to transport water from that nice clean-looking creek near camp, back for use, if that’s what the situation was. I think better and safer results would be had if at least found water was run through a filter to get all the gunk out of the water first. Just remember, do NOT attempt to use the Kettle with the cork in the tank. You will have guaranteed surprise, and likely not a pleasant one when the steam pressure blows out the cork and spews boiling water around. And also, do not have the tank on the fire without water in it, you will damage it, if not ruin it.
I’ve used this thing in some ‘test’ environments, on cold day, light rain during set up, with Vaseline soaked cotton balls and a Ranger Firetube fire starter, a little bit of scrounged dry grass, kindling and a few twigs to have it boiling water in no time. And, for disinfecting found water, nothing beats boiling for a couple of minutes. As pointed out in the videos, take advantage of the prevailing wind, no matter how light, and point the vent holes towards that movement. It will help get things going and work to its maximum efficiently.
There you have it, the Kelly Kettle. If it fits for you, you’ll be handing it down to your grandchildren. Or for presents at birthdays and Christmas! By the way, if you do shop for one, make sure it’s a Kelly Kettle you’re looking at, there are numerous ‘names’ for similar products, like ‘volcano’ or ‘swiss army’ and others, but only one genuine article.

Yes, that’s the title and theme of the latest ‘survival show’ on TV here in the States. ‘Naked and afraid’.
The idea is you take a man and woman, who don’t even know each other for the most part, strip ‘em butt naked and drop them into a jungle or deserted island and come back in 3 weeks to see if they survived. It’s a TV ratings / one-upmanship thing over the other survival guy shows that seem more popular than ever.
So, caught an episode by accident the other Sunday. With one episode, I’ve gained a lifelong supply of buttocks viewed, naked humanity, like a very tiny nudist resort. All the frontal shots are blurred out in the ‘key’ areas. But anyway, on to the point here.
The man of the show, on the ‘Island Nuditiy’ episode, was a tall, burly, heavily tattooed “ex Marine” type. The woman was just a regular gal, except that she has traveled the world to primitive areas and knew much of survival type crafting.
First day, first thing, as they wander about the beach on this deserted island, the dude gets MAJOR sunburn, and is for the next 3 days a helpless whiner as the lady keeps them both alive, making a lean-to shelter and multiple items from palm fronds, using the hatchet, like sun hats and shoulder covers.
The best thing to do before one gets this fried, is to look for ‘something’ to block as much sun from your skin as possible. Since they were on a sandy beach, how about just jump into the ocean, then roll around in the sand to stick it to your skin, find or make mud and spread that around. Just something, right? There’s plenty of coconuts on this island, so the lady is harvesting loads of them, pounding the coconut meat for food and water and to get some oils for his sunburn. Knowing the trick to opening coconuts is handy. You’ll need that hatchet.
Finally he gets up and decides to help out a little. He starts whining about having nothing but coconut water and coconut meat. So, taking the hatchet, he spends 2 or 3 days on a quest, digging a ‘well’, finally hitting a bit of water. Beach combing has supplied them with loads of plastic water bottles, so he grabs one, fills it up. To put it bluntly, the water looked like crap. I would have known already not to, but he ignores the survival lady’s warning and actually drinks this crud. So, now he’s out of action with diarrhea for 3 days. D’oh! Dumped his load way too close to the shelter and didn’t cover it. Surprise, survival lady steps in it. EEwww.
Mentioning the beach combing, they had found loads of plastic water bottles, some odd mismatched filp-flop shoes, some bits of clothing which they comically adapted as needed, regardless of the intended gender of the original clothing manufacturer. SO, they could have improvised a water filtration setup, since they had all the necessary components: grass, sand, charcoal and a few bits of cloth. Additionally, with all those handy clear bottles and tropical sunshine, just leaving the filled bottles (after filtration) out in the sunlight would have done away with all the living parasites and nasty critters in his well water.
The show never really had a good shot of the brand of hatchet they had, but the Blastmatch was recognizable when they used it to start a fire. (He wasn’t much use here either, at first.)
After the dude finally realized what an ass he’d been for the first 2 weeks, he finally starts listening to the survival lady, who was basically keeping both of them alive. They were desperate for some protein, so they improvise spears and go for an eel they find in shallow water. They both cut their feet on the sharp coral, but got the eel. Which the lady cried over, before they ate it, having apparently never before killed a critter to eat it. They also tried trapping rats in a pit.
So, in the end, it appears that if you have someone on the crew who is familiar with jungle / primitive survival craft, and someone who’s finally willing to admit to superior knowledge, you can ‘survive’ in very primitive situations. The end of the show presented ‘before and after’ pictures of the couple, and it was very evident of some serious weight loss on both of them. He lost about 20 pounds, she lost about 18. So, there’s a handy excuse to stuff yourself with cheeseburgers, just in case you get stranded, naked, on an island somewhere…..you’ll be ahead with all that stored fat!
Another one for the tested gear listing, today I’m discussing a top drawer item for your BOB or to actually carry on your person, if you’re so inclined. The “FireSteel Tube Ranger”
They no longer seem to sell these through Amazon, where I discovered this unit, used it and ‘approved it’ for my personal gear and had a link to it on my Surviving Urban Crisis website. But, not one to hold grudges (much) I’m listing the apparent manufacturer’s website to get the item, because I insist that my readers have access to the best gear I’ve personally used, no matter where the source.
I had intended to go into a long description of this handy item and attempt to verbally communicate to you how it works, what it looks like and so forth, but there is a handy video on ‘YouTube’ for the Ranger FireSteel Tube which will certainly beat my typing! The video covers the main features such as the tough aluminum storage tube / handle, the compass and so forth. The man left out a key benefit of having the striking rod stored inside a water tight tube, the most important of which is that the tube prevents certain solvents or corrosion causing chemistry from damaging the crucial part of the system, that sparking rod. Yes, it will dissolve away or corrode from the same metal damaging elements that damage common iron, since the ferrocerium rod is composed of about 20% iron. Another advantage to the tube handle is one can store a small amount of your favorite spark catching – tinder igniting material such as a petroleum jelly soaked cotton ball. (100% cotton is a must.) I find I can only get one soaked cotton ball inside the tube and it must be ‘strung out’ so that it fits with the rod and not get all packed down at the far end of the tube, where it becomes a real hassle to get out when you need it! I go with the trend of hanging the Ranger around my neck with the paracord lanyard, to keep it at hand for instant use and to keep track of this vital bit of gear. If I should need to use the paracord for some project, we will have to be extra sure to not lose the striker and tube, especially, and to be concerned where the striker steel is as well. But, if it comes to it, the backside of a good fixed blade or locking blade knife will strike as good a spark off the rod. DON’T use the sharp edge of the knife on the rod……damages the rod and the knife, and perhaps a finger as well. Just like when using the normal striker, keep the blade perpendicular to the ferro rod, like so:
Ending here, I’ll drop a couple tips on ‘odd’ items one can use for fire starting materials.
Fine steel wool works with this spark maker very well and you can ignite fine steel wool with a 9 volt battery or your cell phone battery. Take it out of your phone and find the end with the tiny brass contacts….shove this into the small bit of fluffed out steel wool momentarily, just long enough to start the action, then quickly tend to getting the tinder going. Steel wool burns pretty quickly, so have it in place in the tinder pile and be ready to move quickly to get the fire going.
The next ‘odd’ item that one can use to start a campfire is hand sanitizer. Yes, the high alcohol content of the popular brands works well with matches or a sparker to get a campfire lit. If you’re shopping for the hand sanitizer, compare brands and get the highest alcohol content on the shelf. The type of alcohol used in most hand sanitizers, including Purell and Germ-X is ethyl alcohol. Ethyl alcohol is the active ingredient in most hand sanitizers. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) recommends a concentration of 60% to 95% alcohol in your hand sanitizing product. It’s the best for saving water while sanitizing your hands in a survival situation and the best for starting your campfires. Just squirt a bit into your tinder pile and spark it. Be aware that this stuff burns with an almost invisible flame during daylight hours, so don’t stick your finger in it to see if it’s lit!
Practice these skills as often as possible and in bad weather conditions especially, so that you actually can make a life saving campfire when you would really need it. Plan ahead, gather up some tinder and fire starting materials to keep in your Bug Out Bag in a waterproof bag. Learn to find dry (or the driest possible) firewood out in the boonies, such as pulling down dead branches and twigs from trees, instead of the stuff lying on the ground which could be considerably soggy from lying against the damp ground for a long time. That task is helped by my paint roller extension handle ‘hiking stick’ with the hook lashed to the end. You can get branches that would be way out of your reach without that. If you want a real hiking stick instead of the somewhat fragile extension handle, then by all means lash a hook to that!

My real world job in manufacturing / engineering / product testing gets a lot of fresh information from the ‘tech’ world. So, one of the latest new gizmos on that scene is a project that NASA is interested in. Seems this cool idea would (possibly) work well to feed astronauts on long-term trips in the future. What the thing does is take ink jet printing and amplifies that idea into ‘printing’ food. The ink tanks are replaced with concentrated liquid food building blocks, like protein, starch, sugars and so forth. As it ‘prints’ the concentrates are squirted down in a very thin layer, onto a baking sheet and the food is baked as it’s printing.
The sales pitch for this far out technology is of course, space travel as their prime customer and promoter, NASA and the endless quest to ‘end world hunger’. The world hunger angle is that these machines, using these liquid concentrates of fats, proteins, sugars, oils, etc are NOT concerned about the SOURCE of the proteins and so forth. In their world, a protein is a protein, no matter what the source. whether it be a cow, some duckweed or a pound of bugs, all the same as far as basic food building blocks are required. So, a slab of protein from this machine is the same as a quarter pounder hamburger of beef or a quarter pound ‘hamburger’ made of bugs. That idea, the ‘end product’ vs the source, is what they think can radically change the world food supply, from our existing food crops and protein animals, into virtually anything that moves, crawls, swims, flies or grows on the planet. Renumber the old movie ‘Soylent Green‘? Dig it up on Netflix or someplace, it’s interesting how it ties in.
Seems to me, though, getting western civilization to eat this stuff, we would have to end food ingredient disclosure laws, otherwise the idea of these particular ingredients will not go over well. Roach and snail concentrate, anyone? Either that, or use the scientific nomenclature for that particular bug, so that the low information voter would eat it without wondering too much about exactly what a “Periplaneta americana” (American cockroach) might be.
Anyhow, what I’m leading up to here is that while a potential ‘good idea’, this is just yet another techno-gadget that society will become dependent upon, for their very food to live, if it were carried on as a successful idea. Leave out the bugs for now, get ‘em used to the idea, right? Already, the majority of modern society would not recognize the real foods we consume were they to walk around the typical commercial farm. If it’s not all clean, perfect and laid out in the grocery, they could be in a world of hurt attempting to find it on their own. They could be standing in the middle of an acre of carrots and have no clue what’s under their feet. Those are carrots, by the way. Millions already will totally starve without their packaged food, delivered just in time to their Kroger supermarket by a fragile infrastructure of growers, processors, and transportation, preferably microwave entrees that can be ready in minutes. While technology is cool, it can lock one out of surviving if you don’t have some knowledge of ‘old school’ ways of doing things. Like gardening, for starters.
Now, apply that same high-tech versus totally primitive idea to your survival gear. There is almost as wide a gap between the high dollar, nifty, light weight, multi-fuel backpacking stoves and the most basic, as we have in the above ideas. Such as this one. Not only does it burn butane, but every liquid fuel too – white gas, kerosene, diesel #1, auto fuel, jet fuel and others. Wonderful idea, using all those different fuels which gives one such versatility in scrounging. In my bug out bag, I prefer the absolute simplest equipment, the most basic and the most durable titanium wood stove or my personal favorite, a Kelly kettle wood burner (the video). The Kelly boils your water in very little time, and boiled water is the only way to go out in the ‘wilds’, sourced from creeks or whatever. Your item is now as simplistic as it can possibly be designed and your fuel source is virtually all around you, where ever you may be. Any kind of burnable material that would fit into the opening will do. I would do all my cooking using any of these devices, in either extreme in price or technology, in a pan, pot or skillet, not over the direct flames unless I was very sure what the fuel (wood) was, because if one were down to burning scraps of newspaper or whatever, the flames and smoke will more than likely have toxic materials in them.
So, at the bottom of it all, we can enjoy modern technology, but back that up with knowledge of how to get by WITHOUT it. If the lights went out right now, thi…………………………………….
