When I am trekking into the wilderness, I usually strategize my pack so I am carrying only the necessities for survival, so my pack doesn’t become overbearing. I mean, carrying a tent, sleeping bag, blanket, clothing, survival gear, an axe, etcetera (and the list simply goes on and on, and on), then I typically won’t bring a set of knives with me, other than my survival blades. Since I often search out dispersed camping these days, my car stays relatively close, and so the level of gear that travels with me is more than tripled than when I am simply backpacking. I’ve been taking my Zhen knives with me and eating very well abroad. Imagine living off the land; catching fish and cooking them over an open fire, with seasonings found in the woods. It’s truly a lovely experience.
