Super fun survival kit post

Recommended Posts

I tied a piece of leather to a length of parachute cord. Not only does it keep the cord from cutting into my shoulder but the leather doubles (in theory) as a rock sling. I hang my knives under my left arm and draw with my right.

Army surplus web belts arenot only durable but other gear can be attached through the holes.

 

1" Tubular webbing very comfy on the neck.

 

Parachute cord tied in a ladder lace. I found it easier to set up and undo then braided cord. I carry it on the ATAX because it was designed to be used as an axe. So it made sense to have cord handy.

I made what looks like that Biotac about 20 years ago (before I ever heard of it), just ran the knife upside down through the belt loop and it was a makeshift shoulder holster for a knife.  I was trying to copy the shoulder holster that came with a cheap boot knife I still have in a box somewhere).  The paracord does get painful after a while though.  I like the weave on that paracord strap you have, what is that kind of weave called?

 

 

I posted my latest example over here:  http://www.wildsurvive.com/outdoor-camping-forum/index.php/topic,5764.msg267362.html#msg267362

 

 

I like the simplicity of some of these slings Muddy.  Thanks for posting them.  :thumbsup:

I like the idea of the open loop braid on the ATAX.  Softer and more weight distribution than a single strand and the paracord is still easily usable.  LOVE IT!!!

Cool. The ATAX just has a ladder lace. The purple braid up top I don't know the correct term for. I just messed with until it came togther.

This is a really cool thread Muddy. I watched the whole series. I always tend to over think things. I really like how you keep things simple and usable.

ESEE AH-1 Arrow Head. I'm not sure exactly what to do with it. Yes, I know it's an arrow head. You put it on a pointy stick and shoot it at your arch foe while saying something clever like "Have a knife day!".

 

What I'm trying to figure out is what else it could used for. It does work for some cutting tasks and I did get parks of my ferro rod. It also keeps people from think twice about sitting down on your couch.  8| 

Get a few more and you can make all kinds of stuff.

Some climbing claws, throwing stars, you can nasty up your boomerang.

Ooh! the possibilities are endless!  :bounce:

Wine cork. multiple use survival item. Most important use is to stop wine from spilling out the bottle.  :P

 

Black powder speed loading tubes. They do float. I filled this one full of cotton balls and submerged it for an hour. No leakage.

well over the years Ive carried various survival kits but more or less grew away from them as i started to build up numerous survival suplies that id just sort threw and decide on a whim what to carry. well after going threw this thread and watching muddys videos i finally decided to build my very own super fun survival pocket kit. using some of what muddy has posted and a little of my own personal ideas to it. (thank you for the inspiration muddy  :arigato:  i know that i can walk into about any woodlands and build fire from scratch with natural tinder's and a bowdrill in about an hour but i am rarely in the woods these days so i wanted something i could carry in a pocket, be flexible enough to add a thing or two or trade out something as i saw fit. (not always easy with a "tin" kit. so i went with a heavy duty ziplock bag i found at work.  coupled with the tibo back up neck knife i think this little kit is worthy of the field. 

it has 2 ways to start fire, a light, tinder in a waterproof pill fob, water purifying tablets in the little bottle that came inside the pill fob and enough heavy duty tin foil to construct various water collecting (think snow melt) and water purifying capacities. a signal mirror, light and a compass and wrapped with just enough paracord to be useful. the Gerber stl 2.0 knife is a stout little razor, i wouldn't be afraid to dress out small game or even a deer with it if i stayed out of the bones to keep from dulling it.  like i said its flexible, i could throw in a wire saw and some bandaids etc. but i wanted to keep it as small as i could so it would just slip in a pocket and be forgotten.

Kim asked me about making pace beads. It’s easy. The top one is a mailed ordered GI Joe thing. The middle one I made and the one on the bottom is nothing more then a length of parachute cord with knots tied in it to mark the intervals.

 

One long shoe lace doubled over and knotted. Slide 4 beads onto the shoe lace and knot it again. 9 more beads and then tie off the end.
