Not a TW I don't think but it does get one thinking of what can be done in a "situation".
I'll accept the wood lever as real. Even if it's a hoax I bet it could be done though I hope never to have to carve one however, you never know. I've ridden for a few miles with a broken clutch and brake levers but was close to home. If I was out in the middle of Sasquatch country on the trail, I may want to consider this alternative.
I'm never that prepared and wing it a lot. I guess I carry a multi-tool most of the time but I always carry a SPOT and Safe Straw so I can drink creek water if I run out.A knife IS one of the Ten Essentials, is it not?
For each mode of transport, be it bike, truck, boat or foot...I always carry some sort of "kit" which includes at least:
What's in your wallet?
- 3 methods of starting a fire.
- Some sort of blade.
- Some basic First Aid.
- LARGE orange garbage bag
