Collect the whole set,that’s what I say.Lots more on this as soon as I can………..OK I’m back.. edge! you have to have a edge.To make your tools,shelter,prep grub,make fire and so on.This edge can be as simple as a flint chip, glass,metal,bamboo,Bone, a small abrading stone or even those white shiney things in your pie-hole!Or this edge could be a high dollar work of space age genius perfectly sharpened with a frggin “LASER ” ” “…I am not to picky as to what kind as long as I have a edge when I need It And I always have one. I have some favorite’s but its not an obsession. I have had some that were Crap and I just turn them into something I can use like a hammer!I make tons of knives but I am not a knife maker.Scrap broken metal,tin,Glass,flint,obsidian with a little work will give you a edge to work with .This edge will not have to be fancy either like a “perfect bi-face corner tang mammoth shanker”Just A edge.Sharp small.Many times I will grab a chip of rock or a little piece of glass to cut something even though I have BEN-CHA-MA-DAY In my pocket.To cut the notch in your fire board,gut fish,Strike your metal-match try it you’ll like it.More later.
