Step 3: Knives...
Whatever knife you get make sure it's;
- legal in your area, if your unsure take a look at this wikipedia article, link,
- of good quality, cheap knives are too unreliable to be useful,
- sharp, blunt knives are more dangerous than sharp knives.
For me a Spyderco Ladybug Salt fits my needs perfectly, it's small, light, can't rust, razor sharp and a resonable price.
I also recommend either a Leatherman Micra or a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Jelly Classic.
Again Heinnie Haynes are the #1 place to get these from.
