Art , a facinating true survival story that you can google, about the first game ranger (Harry Wolhuter) in the Kruger national park,and his solo encounter with a lion and that same knife that is on display in the museum....
I want to make a bold (controversial ?) statement :
THERE IS NO SUCH A THING AS A SO CALLED COMMERSIAL SURVIVOR KNIFE !!
Off course you can survive with any knife -that is different.
Throughout history different people has survived very different survival situations with a diverse amount of knives types.
The ONE thing all of these knives have in common , is not their looks or reputation or sales pitch as being the "best" survival knife under the sun, but the fact that the suvivor had it mostly EDC on his / her person when the crises situation arised...

Do you recognize this cheap EDC (survival) butchers knife, or know about the role it played about a 100 odd years ago in one of the most epic survival stories in South Africa's history?
