Why do I Need a Survival Knife
The first question you might ask is “why do I need a knife at all?” As we will discuss a knife has hundreds of survival related functions and may just be the best tool you have when you venture into the outdoors and there is a good reason Rambo and Bear Grylls always have one handy (but we would prefer if you use it like Bear Grylls’ rather than Rambo).
A survival knife is useful for the following functions:
- As a first aid tool
- Make-shift screwdriver
- For food preparation
- Building shelters
- Prying Tool
- As a hunting weapon
- Making fires
Information about Binoculars
Buying the right pair of binoculars suitable for your purpose begins with understanding some of the technical terms.
Magnification or Power - If you have binoculars with a power of 10x this means that if you are viewing something 100m away it will appear as if it is 10m away.
Objective lens (aperture) – This is the front lens of the binoculars and is measure in mm. The size refers to the diameter of the lens and determines how much light is gathered. A larger objective lens with the same size of magnification will provide a brighter image with better resolution and a better overall viewing experience. However generally binoculars with a larger aperture size will be bulkier and heavier.
Field of View – This refers to the size of the viewing window. Wide angle binoculars are better for viewing things in close quarters where things may not appear in narrower view binoculars. They are good for viewing things that may move quickly across your field of view, like when bird watching for example. Note that as magnification increases field of view decreases.
Eye relief – This refers to the padding on the eye holes which enable comfortable viewing and often has space for viewing with seeing eye glasses on as well.
Centre V. Individual Focus Binoculars – Centre focus binoculars only allow for both eyepieces to be adjusted simultaneously. This is useful when binocular use is limited to fast, frequent viewing such as when bird watching, hunting or just generally viewing wildlife. Individual focus binoculars on the other hand have individual adjustments for each eye piece and are more suited to pursuits such as boating, astronomy or surveillance that do not require fast transitions.
