Let's take a look at some survival gadgets. I'm a sucker for this stuff, so I have a bit of a collection.
Show me what you got, what you've tested, what works, and what's junk.

These are just some of the smaller survival tools I have.

I'm a big fan of this fire starter keychain. I've tested it and it works great.


It's waterproof, and unscrews to reveal a ferro rod, striker, compass, and storage for tinder.

This Timberline O2 Wrench is part of my EDC gear. Very small, easy to carry. The small blade on it is very sharp, the strap cutter is also.
It's come in handy more than a few times for everyday things like package opening, prying on stuff, cutting cord, bottle opening.


I'm sure everyone's seen one of these survival cards. Kinda gimmicky, but they can be useful. I like to put them in my homemade Altoids survival tins.


I have this small pocket tool stashed in one of my grab n' go bags. I like that it has a flashlight.

This credit card knife rides in my wallet. It's pretty cool and damn sharp.
It's not going to hold up to any rigorous bush crafting, but it's nice to have as a backup.
