comment Buying a Backpacking Knife
The $10 knife I purchased this summer has served me for cutting food for half a month, and cutting branches the thickness of my arm six times (plus then carving them) and is in excellent shape. I guess a Cold Steel fixed blade would hold out maybe in times longer. So ... how much more? Another thought - "light&small" and "not dullable" are conflicting requirements - hard blades need to be either bulky or ... soft, so they do not snap.

comment How do you fashion a spear with a fixed blade
I think "how to make it", "what to use it for and what not for" and "how to use it" are one atomic question.

comment What is a good knife for survival in a forested environment?
I once tried to make a spear out of a staff and an old knife. It is true that I do not know how to throw a spear. It is also true, however ,that the tip broke off at the second throw at a three. Could you provide some info or a link to how this setup could be useful and how to acquire the necessary skills?

Dear fellow community members. This wiki is formed by copying all the answers here, in consistent way. However, these are mostly my subjective interpretations of other people's answers. Therefore, I encourage everyone to edit this wiki. Furthermore, the lack of references is overwhelming.

comment Calculating time until sunset
First way - in the internet, before departing to the wilderness. You can also check how many minutes a day does that change. Second way - the first evening see at what time it sets. Of course, all this is provided you have a watch.

comment Good books to learn survival?
I have always wondered how people manage to learn non-theoretical concepts from books - survival, martial arts, etc. Why not just grab a knife and a warm shirt and go to the woods for several days? Summer's excellent for that.

A watch. You check when does the sun set. Subtract the current time from that and that's it. I guess error could be up to one hour because of the landscape (mountains).
