This article is an updated version of a post comment I shared in 2007 on The Survival Forum at equipped.org concerning a news report of a crashed pilot who survived, allegedly by chewing on leaves and drinking his own urine. This article expounds upon the meanings of some of my original wording…
A while back, I reviewed a high quality hollow handled survival knife… Kizlyar Supreme’s Survivalist X. In the video accompanying the article, I went into some depth concerning the MOLLE panel on the front of its sheath, which I added a 50? hank of paracord to. I have since replaced the paracord with Kizlyar Supreme’s MOLLE Survival Kit SMP1… it attaches to a belt or anything MOLLE-compatible.
Hollow handled survival knives appeal to minimalist survivalists who like a complete survival kit in one item… and to those who like essential survival item redundancy.
Polar Pure water disinfectant had been a long time favorite among outdoorsy types who like to able to quickly and conveniently disinfect the water they refill their canteens with while out and about. Polar Pure uses iodine crystals to disinfect, and it became very popular over the years when it was available… for almost three decades. It has a small sturdy container size, an indefinite shelf life (unlike iodine pills), and can disinfect up to 2000 liters of water against water-borne pathogens (biological agents that causes disease or illness to their hosts), including Giardia cysts… Giardia of course being marketed as being the pathogen to be aware of! These qualities of Polar Pure make it an ideal solution… ba-da-bing!… except for one thing… well, two things actually.
