Welcome to the forums longrifle. I am impressed with how much you s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d this 1 piece of equipment. LOL Let me see if I can count the ways:

1. BK7 (somewhat modified) [NOTE: Biggest understatement I've seen in some time]
2. dmt sharpener,
3. fishing hooks/lure and line,
4. commando wire saw,
5. large fire steel,
5. waxed jute/tender,
6. mini-mag light,
7. compass,
8. 26 ga. brass wire (10 ft),
9. duct tape,
10. small lighter,
11. roll up plastic water pouch (1 liter),
12. needle/thread,
13.whistle,
14. fresnel lens,
15. aluminum foil
16. hot glue stick
17. para cord

That is a 17:1 return on your investment of 1 piece of equipment! LOL Can you share a pic of this set up?

Just out of curiosity, do you think the aluminum foil is durable enough in a survival situation or is it intended for a 1 time use?

I love both of these answers although I am not sure what a real life scenario is compared to urban and bush.

Do you mean "clothes"? Or are you sewing your outfit?

I've seen this mentioned before, WTF is it? The Navy and Marines didn't get one?
Or are you talking about a USAF pilot survival knife?
