    Link: Survival - A Butt Load Of Essential Skills - Wilderness to me usually means 5 feet away from the house... But now I can survive.

    All good bits except the Iphone diagram... Even the survival knife touches it but doesnt quite show that if you grind 1 side of a knife/blade it will be sharper than grinding both ( 90 degree edge vs. 45 degree edge)...

    I teach wilderness survival and primitive living skills. 95% of the stuff on Man vs Wild is stupid and/or suicidal. I would not tell anyone not intimately familiar with flora and fauna to hunt, trap or gather food. Most people (except diabetics) in a survival situation are more likely to die gathering or eating food than from starvation.

    A lot of these seem to assume you have a pooton of rope and strings about.

    How about a tutorial on weaving plant fiber into string? That`s a bit of a prerequisite course to some of these.
