Any quality plain edge knife that is kept sharp can cut through anything a blade with serrations can. This is especially the case when you have a short bladed knife such as the Gator II, if it’s a 50/50 split between plain and serrations that leaves you with just 2 inches of plain blade to work with. Take a look at the dive knife used in the Costa Rica and Island episodes.
I’ve been to numerous areas were a sat phone would be of questionable help as far as that goes, but our normal “lost in the woods” person is likely to only have their local cell with them, if even that. everyone has their opinions, and i believe that as long as they are based upon rational thought and research with knowledge built in, its not mud slinging, its simply expressing an opinion. Many of the survival forums, ones that you have mentioned in your post, are so filled with cursing and mud slinging that I personally won’t waste my time reading them. One of the largest and most respected outdoor survival schools in the country recently lost a student. He died of dehydration because the instructors failed in their primary responsibility as guides.

Both are used as fillers in a number of commercial mixes. Many dogs can have an allergic reaction to corn and wheat with notable skin problems. How you ever got the idea that small dogs aren’t good survival buddies is beyond me.
I always carry an arkansas stone or small diamond sharpener in the utility pouch on all of my fixed blades’ sheaths (I’m a fan of nylon sheaths, thats just me, may be a problem w/ a kydex sheath system). I have used another similar method to sharpen in Survival Run with Bear Grylls apk the field using a smooth quartz rock, with patience the quartz polishes and touched up the edge very well. I have also used a variety of river rock to touch up my blades while I’m in the field. We did watch the interview with Oprah on Jan 31. I have no idea why Oprah didn’t ask Bear about the knife on the desert Island episode?

Raw meat can contain all sorts of bacteria and parasites. Eating raw meat in a survival situation is practically a death sentence because you could end up with diarrhea, then severe dehydration. On at least one episode, Bear Grylls has caught an animal and bitten right into the dead animal.

These people are literally dropped off in the wilderness with no clothes. If you’ve been following Grylls on television a long time, you may recall a time when he was shown trying to build himself a Polynesian-style raft to survive. Impressively, he managed to accomplish this using only a handful of materials, such as palm leaves and bamboo. However, according to a report from Standard, the raft was built first by survival consultant Mark Weinert.
