Knife, Tools & Cordage Class
There are a variety of tools that can help you survive in the wilderness, but the right knife is the most important one. Knowing how to select the proper knife, sharpen it and maintain it so it doesn’t corrode is critical to your success. Your knife is used for cutting notches (to make other tools and traps), prepare food, provide protection, and make cordage.
