    To me, fire is the most critical part of my kit. Something to boil water in and then an edged tool.

    A First Aid Kit. :-D

    There are normally edged tools in them and they also carry other essentials that can be used in a pinch, including tinder, Oxidising agents, sugar, painkillers, salts and a host of other things.

    Try telling someone with a broken ankle that your knife or axe will ease his pain :yikes:

    Hi...

    If you take away knowledge, then i would go for:

    1. Big knife - (not machete!)
    2. Cooking pot
    3. A sewing needle

    These 3 things are the ones who is most difficult to make out of the materials in nature. If I should choose 3 'second class' things i'd say:

    1. Firesteel
    2. Cordage
    3. Poncho

    If only allowed one piece of kit,it would have to be an axe for me.

    The most important thing you can carry anywhere with you is the will to live for with this you can over come all but the very worst odds. It easily out ranks knowledge and a good knife.

    And, thanks to the nanny state and the 'blameless' societies we now live in the will to live is growing weaker and weaker.
