comment How do I tie a double fisherman's knot?
You're better off learning to tie a bowline, and using two of them as a bend. It's works about as well, and is useful in many other situations, too.

Take a sailing class. MOB should be on the curriculum, but ask for it to be sure.

comment How do I tie a stopper knot?
Figure-8 is the most common stopper knot on a boat, but double overhand knot is probably a good choice for a newbie, because it's very easy to learn. Single overhand knot has a tendency to jam, so it's less desirable than the others.

Take a class. This can't fit in SE.

comment Where can I find if a fixed blade knives is legal to carry around in a given country?
Here in USA, each locality may have different rules, so it's difficult to answer this for "US and Europe". A more appropriate SE question might be "where can I find out if ... is legal?"

comment How can I signal for help in the wilderness?
This is important information, but it is also very well covered in many other sources. To make it more suited to SE, I suggest narrowing it. For example, "When [activity] for [length-of-time] in [location] during [season]", how can I signal for help?"

Be careful with shouting. You can use up a lot of energy and dehydrate yourself with repeated shouting.
