We agree, but you're being an ass about it.That’s a nonsensical statement.
If I exclusively plan on always having more than one tool, and then PREP for that, and follow through...that’s good prep.
My backpacking gear has three knives JUST in the gear, not counting what I put on the outside.
My fishing vest has two knives on it. My Kayak has another. My truck has four knives, a hatchet and two saws, plus two multi tools, plus regular tools. My desk at work has two knives and a multi tool in it. My day pack has a knife and a multi tool.
Calling it “exclusive planning” to always have more than one of something makes no sense.
Redundancy denotes more of the same thing, so if you say redundancy aside, but then say you only plan on one tool....then you DID imply exactly that.
But all of that aside...LoL...”planning” on a tool to never fail is a poor example of prepping.
Which even you admit, as you then say we need backups.....which is exactly what I said.
So it appears we agree? Plan on having spares and other methods and tools available, not just one cutting tool?
Let me try again:
Me think "survival knife" is tough knife. Hard to break. Chop, baton, pry, knife no break. You abuse "survival knife", it no care, knife no break. If it you only knife, you ok if you no lose it. But have second knife anyway, just in case. Maybe third knife too. Maybe even fourth knife. One tough knife and three regular knives better than four regular knives.
