Survival Gear

Dijukno it is recommended to carry a single blade knife as part of your survival kit?

A Swedish Mora with a 3 7⁄8-inch
fixed blade. This $20, knife is definitely a bargain. The reason: A fixed blade with a full tang (meaning the blade runs through the length of the handle) is stronger, so the handle never breaks.  Carbon steel is recommended because you can sharpen it against a smooth river stone using an arcing motion against the rock. It also sparks when you strike the back of the blade with a piece of quartzite, flint, or chert.
