TEOTWAWKI Blade Entry #15

This is my bug-out knife kit, or at least my favorite one.  The large blade is made from an old crosscut saw blade and is strong enough to cut saplings if needed, but can be sharpened on a rock.  The small blade is an ancient kitchen knife some ancestor used for a work blade earlier in the century and it somehow made its way to me.  It can be used for more fine work.  The sheath is not stitched but tied, so it can be opened and lets me have a wide piece of leather.  It also has an old steel sparker and some jute cordage attached.  This is a somewhat old style of survival gear, but it seemed to work in the past and should work well today too.
