Disaster Survival Checklist of Prepper
Tools to Own:

Prepper Tools To Own #1:  Bushcraft survival tools.

Axes: Before buying a survival axe, hatchet or tomahawk,
consider your needs:
  • Felling axe ~ extremely sharp for cutting down trees
  • Limbing axe ~ lightweight and shorter than a felling axe
  • Hunting axe ~ chop bone, and speed up game processing
  • Splitting axe ~ heavy hitters
  • Hatchet ~ typically have a hammer head, great for around
    the house, not the best for tree felling though conceivably
    you could
  • Tomahawks ~ for breaching operations, excavation, obstacle
    removal, extraction, and other utility applications.

Cammenga Lensatic compass is the compass to own!
Eventually preppers want an alternate tool for navigation, and
that's when the U.S. made Cammenga tritium lensatic compass
comes into play. Built for U.S. fighting forces, the Cammenga is
the world's leading brand of military compass.

  • Bushcraft basic knife, such as the Condor Tool.

  • Folding /collapsable Saw.

  • Tomahawk. A tomahawk is a versatile tool used for
    breaching operations, excavation, obstacle removal,
