This very handy and durable little sword turned out to be an absolutely ferocious cutter. I still have it and it’s the piece I always give to beginners when teaching them how to cut because it makes it really easy. It’s also practically indestructible, which helps.

Wouldn’t be a bad choice at all for a bug-out-bag…
