I made myself a survival knife today, it's made from a 9 inch diablo demolition saw, now they cut on the pull but I prefer a saw to cut on the push so I reversed it and ground it to shape. It's got 5 inches of saw teeth so it can cut a 2 1/2 inch tree branch, more than most men can wrench of by hand, good firewood or to build an emergency shelter. the knife blade is for cutting the point on stakes or cutting wood joints.

I've found a good video on fire making with flint and steel and one that puts a bit of art into survival.

The flint is real flint that is knapped th make stone axes.

A 72 hour bugout kit needs good gear and those of us who've been in the defense forces know what gear to get, the water canteen for example can be a nightmare or a good multi use unit. This is the only unit worth recomending;

The m12 canteen (1 quart - 960mil) and cover holds the cup and the kidney stove fits inside the cup; the stove is fueled by hexamine tablets or metho burner lower down on this page. The hexamine or metho burner , and the water purification tablets are stored in a pocket on the cover; the whole unit is belt mounted. In Australia the unit costs about $65 and is US made.

I made a batch of jerky in the food drier with corned silverside , perhaps a little too dry but nice to eat and definitely worth cooking with; if it lasts long enough! It is definitely top emergency food with no need to cook, dried veg reconstitute themselves in cold water and are precooked. A pleasant meal could be made with the above and reconstituted powdered milk with drinking chocolate and NO COOKING, ok for summer.

Thanks Steve! That looks like a very simple project that will be really useful!

The Coke can metho burner has been around for as long as aluminium can have, this one is made from 200ml minicoke cans.

The bottoms of 2 coke cans are cut off with sizzers, one 1 in high and the other 5/8 in high. The larger is the top, it is punched with holes on the outside of the rim every 1/4 in with a drawing pin and a hole punched with a nail in the middle of the dished bottom and the top loosly filled with non flameable fiberglass insulation, the cut edge is kinked with needle nose pliers so that it slides inside the shorter bottom piece, a short piece of insulation is pulled through the hole in the top piece to act as a wick.

Metho is poured into the burner through the dished top until a small pool is visible, when lit it takes a minuit to heat up then flames flow through the holes. Above is a metho burner powering an army hexistove, this unit can boil a pint of water in 8 minuites.
