The knife is without a doubt the most important tool you will use in the great outdoors. With a good knife, you will be able to perform almost every task required on a wilderness trip.
Lars Fält will guide you through techniques on how to use a knife safely, and perhaps as importantly, how to teach children to use a knife safely. Lars offers many tips throughout the book including, amongst others, how to cut down a small tree, the correct way to split wood for the fire, how to light a fire using a knife and fire steel, and a quick lesson on how to fillet a fish.
A well-cared for knife is going to last a lifetime, and there is a useful chapter showing us how to look after our knife. There are detailed explanations of cleaning and sharpening a knife, and caring for the handle and sheath.
The knife has been an essential tool in human history, and Lars has written a little about the history, including a fascinating glimpse of some of the different types used by indigenous peoples of the north.
Lars Fält is an internationally recognised authority on survival and outdoors skills, and has published a series of successful books on the subject. After a long military career, Lars now dedicates his time to teaching the general public the extensive knowledge and experience he has acquired over the years.
