Just thought I would share my little bushcraft/survival/bug out bag with you and see what you think.... Stuff marked with a big smile ":D" is my favorite stuff...

I'm a real gear junky... I started collecting knives, then torches, then survival gear.... then I started reading all the books and trying stuff like fire starting, cooking, navigation in the wood and discovered I was into bushcraft!

I cut the 'bum bag' belt off mine... just carry it like a bag... It gets well annoying hanging round your backside and removing the belt gives more room inside.

That's a set up and then some! You'll be ready for anything. I think you need more knives in it though;)

Don't you think all the blades are a little overkill. Other than that nice setup

8 blades & a saw are giving you weight that you could use for other stuff (food/more 1st aid stuff etc) I'd be tempted to keep the Fallkniven F1 and the Victorinox hunter and get rid of the rest

It's only me but like one for heavy use one for delicate work and one for food preparation. Also a multitool but don't class that as a blade.

It is a lot of knives but if you're happy carrying them that's all that matters mate!

Thats what i thought.... carving, heavy work, food...... boker, f1, sak and a multi tool..... so just chuck out the bushman then...

If you really want to be prepared, forget the snug pac.

Hide all the knives and get a stab vest pronto.
