comment What is this tool on a Swiss Army knife for?
Just a note on the process you suggested: The hole should be punched first, and thread pulled back through the hole because punching with the thread might damage the thread on the cutting edge when you punch through. See the second picture for clarity.

comment Kayaking in the UK
This is one of the reasons I love Scotland. I wish England adopted this access code. Great answer; thanks for all the links.

comment I put a big gouge in the bow of my canoe going across rocks. How can I fix it?
You'll get more specific answers if you state the material your canoe is made from.

comment What are the most effective ways to start a fire in the cold?
Nobody seems to have mentioned it yet, but making a stick "bed" for your fire will raise it off the cold ground and help. The bed also becomes a useful coal bed once it's burning well.

comment What is the safest way to purify water?
I wouldn't rely on whether the water is clear and flowing. A carcass up river could be rotting away without discolouring the water. I'd always boil water I collect (if possible).
