Battle of the Kukri from Lansky

images (1)Nice review on the Kukri.  You need to go get one.  Very affordable and durable.

Breathing heavy from running away from a bear that tried to attack me in the woods.  I sat down for a moment to catch my breath, realizing that I am now lost.  Running away from that bear made me head in a direction that I did not know.  I took off my backpack and opened it up to grab some water to drink.  Thinking that I am going to have to stay hear for the night considering that it was getting dark.  Survival rule number 1 & 2.  Stay in one place and do not panic.

Looking around the area, I can see that their is enough material to build a small shelter and fire wood for the night.  I reached for the Kukri that was attached to my backpack I got from Lansky and started chopping away at the wood.  “Wack, wack” I was chopping away at the wood, making different links for my shelter.  Once I was done cutting the wood, I pulled out my 550 cord and tied it all together.

After completing the shelter, I started cutting wood for a fire.  DSC_0429Man, I could not believe that this Kukri was holding strong and was still pretty sharp after cutting plenty of wood.  I took one piece of wood and wacking it into small pieces for kneeling was a breeze.  At last getting it all together, I pulled out a piece of flint and with one strike with my Kukri, a spark flew off of the flint and hit the kneeling just right and “woosh” the fire was going.  I took the Kukri and with a downward motion, stuck it in a piece of wood while I continued to throw fuel on the fire.  Just think, I got the Kukri just last week and now I know it is a great tool add for my emergency hiking bag.  Thanks Lansky for the great tool and for a great price.
