    How to use a Millbank Bag

    well the water won't be "sterile", but you will have effectively pasturised your water. so most of the bugs will be dead. :rolleyes:;) like you say, boiling water, a good rolling boil: big bubbles = no troubles :cool: cheers, and.

    Do you have a black bottom??

    Pots live in a dedicated stuff sack. Chunks get cleaned/scraped off as and when. Inside is clean. Mors says it is more efficient with a black pot. A tight fitting lid probably has more effect on efficiency. Inside of pot is always clean.

    Why are bushcraft knives, and survival knives so different?

    yes, rifles too, and even first aid kits. but in terms of "let's talk about designing a survival knife", slightly pointless. no pun intended. :rolleyes: i already have the ultimate in multi-role machetes, :cool: but i'd love to get my hands on a russian survival kit machete. cheers, and.

    Why are bushcraft knives, and survival knives so different?

    the quality most desired in a survival knife is propinquity! :o i know this because i read it in leroy thompson's book on survival knives. i agree most wholeheartedly. ie the best survival knife is the one with you. essentially this disqualifies any big honking knives from the title of survival...

    5 tarp shelter set-ups

    that is awesome!well done chaps. i've never used that first one before. the only point i'd add is that on a gusty night as the wind flaps the tarp about, sometimes unsecured trekking poles can come adrift. or knocked over by fatties moving around inside. :lmao: a handy Aframe at the entrance...

    Fiskars billhook

    I can only reitrrate the above sentiments. Fiskars brush hooks are awesome. Roving Rich is remarkably stingy. He borrowed mine for a while, when i had it back rich went out and bought his own. There is no higher praise than this! :D Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk
