OUTDOORS THE SCANDINAVIAN WAY - USING A KNIFE - BOOK
The knife is without a doubt the most important tool you will use in the wild. With a good knife, you can perform almost any task needed on a trip into the wilderness.
Lars Fält will show you through techniques how to handle a knife safely and, perhaps just as important, how to teach children to use a knife safely.
Lars offers many tips throughout the book, including, for example, how to cut down a small tree, the proper way to split wood for the fire, how to make a fire with a knife and firesteel, and a short lesson on filleting fish.
A well-cared-for knife will last a lifetime, and there is a helpful chapter that shows us how to maintain our knife.
There is detailed explanation of how to clean and sharpen a knife, and how to care for the handle and sheath.
The knife has been an essential tool in human history, and Lars has written a bit about the history, including a fascinating glimpse of some of the different types used by indigenous peoples in the north.
Lars Fält is a world-renowned expert on survival and bushcraft.
After an extraordinary military career in which he founded the Swedish Army's Survival Unit in 1980, Lars has written more than ten books on survival skills and the outdoors.
He has worked extensively with indigenous peoples around the world, from Siberia and Canada to Australia, and now uses his experience and knowledge to teach not only the military, but all of us.
