We discuss how important it is to have skills when it comes to preparedness. You have always heard me say that you can have all the tacti-cool gear in the world, but if you don’t have the accompanying skills, you are pretty much dead in the water. When we talk about skills, we are also referring to having the ability to maintain your gear.
This applies to your solar setup, water filtration, firearms, etc., but without having the ability to keep these systems maintained or fix them when needed, you are in trouble. This concept should be applied to one of the most important tool in your gear, your knife. Using a dull knife is like trying to put out a house fire with a garden hose, pointless. We have all had to use a dull knife at one time or another and it stinks. So let’s get empowered and become our own knife sharpening experts.
