Self preservation is at the heart of every prepping philosophy. Whether its your EDC bag, your bug out bag, or something in between, you’ll likely include some means of self defense in your kit. I’m a big fan of having a firearm (or two) as your primary means of defending yourself and loved ones. So where does the knife rank among self defense weapons?
I’m a huge advocate of having some sort of medical bag as part of your EDC kit. There are a ton of First Aid and medical bags out there for purchase. However, I chose to build my own medical bag. Am I alone, or are others out there on board?
Getting your child their first pocket knife is a momentous occasion. Whether it’s a boy or a girl, toting around a tool that can double as a weapon is a huge responsibility. A knife is a useful tool, and introducing one early on in life can set good habits for their EDC in the future.
