Fifth picture of the series in which I'll try to answer some questions about my backpack and haversack.
These are the tools and materials which I use most when going out for a few days. .
A good length of quality rope. In this case 10 meters of splytex which I use as ridgeline, for building shelters or a bushchair and to tie stuff on my backpack. I also carry a roll of bankline, which is probably my all time favourite.
The @rockywoodlandforge tomahawk has been with me on every trip since the day it arrived and I don't think I will ever go on another trip without it. In this case I've got the digging tool on the handle, which is perfect for breaking open the soil and digging for roots.
For me, reusing materials I find, is a skill I value highly. To do so I carry some specific tools.
In the leather sheet I carry some oldschool pliers and my diy awl. I like these pliers because they are more capable of handling materials, like for instance fencing wire, than my leatherman. The awl has so many uses like punching holes, stitching and prying, making it a tool I would never leave at home.
As for the cutting tools. I've got a Victorinox Pioneer and this little knife does it all. The Condor Nessmuk is my main blade. There are probably many knives which are better but this is what I could afford at the time and it really served me well so far. The Condor Tavian is my backup blade and I bought it for about 10 euros second hand. Not pictured but also with me is a no brand folding saw which I hope to replace soon.
Next picture will be about the spare clothing and contents of the Maxpedition pouch.
