If you cut turrets into the top it will let in enough air if you want to put a pot on top

wow nice knife, is it a Ka-bar? my friend has a USMC issue Ka-bar and its a beauty

its a Bayonet for an AR-15 rifle.

i dont think thats an AR-15 bayonet. it has a barrel ring but the butt cap is different from the an ar15 knife. it doesnt look like an m6, an m7, an m9, ar a usmc OKC-3s bayonet.
 i collect knives. thats a leather handle so i would guess it was from the vietnam war. america doesnt issue leather handled knives because they are not waterproof.

that's a wood handle its just the lighting and it cliped onto my AR-15 but it shakes quite a bit

i thought so

use a manual can opener it makes the cut so much better

But much less fun

If you use proper kindling (dry leaves, wood shavings you make with your dirty great knife), then you should be able to do without the lighter fuel. That means that you then have the ability to make and light a stove anywhere there is litter.
