comment Where can I find if a fixed blade knives is legal to carry around in a given country?
Agreed. I also don't think we want to be giving this sort of legal advice in general. Laws have a tendency to change, and there are better outlets for tracking legal issues. They do try to sum them up here. knife-expert.com/sta-law.htm

comment What should I do when I'm lost?
+1 for staying put, especially if you're lost due to vehicle accident or breakdown. If you're really lost, you don't know if wandering around is taking your closer or further away from help.

comment What should you do if you are bitten by a rattlesnake?
I wonder if it's not better to generalize and ask "What should you do if you're bit by a (poisonous) snake?"

comment Folding versus fixed blade knives
The fixed blade is the Becker Eskabar. It's a hybrid of the Becker BK11 and the Esee Izula. eseeknives.com/eskabar.htm If I was buying again, I think I would just go for the Izula though as I prefer the blade on the Izula slightly. Not enough to justify another purchase however.

comment Which side of an emergency blanket should I use?
They have different sides?! All the ones I have seen are silver on both sides, I'm thinking the orange might be there for signaling? Although I would think that the silver would work pretty well for that.

comment Does hiking with a dog in bear country increase or decrease your risk of a bear encounter?
I don't know that it is true that a bear has no fear of a dog. I have seen bears run from cats even. Of course it will depend on the type and temperament of the bear.

comment Serrated vs flat-edge knives
Let me quantify that then, they are much more difficult to sharpen if all you have is a whetstone.

comment How do I tie a Prusik knot?
Friction I could see, but the weight is still being put entirely on the two ends coming away from the knot. Thanks!

Serrated are also a lot more difficult to keep sharp.

I don't know about anyone else, but I like my compass to point north.
