18th Century Woodsman:
This kit includes the following items and I will list them in order of importance to me personally:
- Cutting Tools: Lt. Wright Bushcrafter, Battle Horse Knives Frontier First, Jeff White Spear Point, Bacho Laplander, Striker Knife in Micro 10 C's Kit. So why are cutting tools without a doubt the most important item in my kit? Well if I have a sharp high quality knife and a good baseline skill set I can make most of the other items in my kit if need be and over time can make a very comfortable camp. I always go cutting tool heavy as never enter the woods without a neck knife, belt knife and a Bacho Laplander (buck saw and axe for long-term trips or winter trips with minimal shelter)
