No Knife? No Problem

You should always have a knife on hand, a backup knife in your pocket, and probably a few extras stashed around your various bug out bags and gear.

But it never fails that, for whatever reason, when you need something the most, you never have it.

Whether you are stuck in the woods or stuck on the side of the road and just need to tie something down, the right length of cordage can really make your life a lot easier.
