Tool N° 1

To be honest, coffee is essential on the trail and there’s only one item that is more important to me, a knife!

If you are a hard-core city tripper you’ll probably won’t see the need to carry a knife. However, when travelling off the beaten path you will find a knife indispensable.

Look for a strong, sharp blade made of high carbon steel. Do not buy the “Rambo” style hollow handle survival knives, they are crap. A full tang blade will be stronger than a folding knife, it needs to resist heavy use. Learn how to sharpen a knife and always cut away from yourself. A quality knife can be expensive, but you get what you pay for. Often neglected, the sheath of a knife needs to be very well made.
