Stuck anywhere in the world I'd take my chances with a Strider MT with the parachute corded handle and a diamond coated sharpener in the sheath pouch. The first thing to go would be a six foot shaft of fire hardened hardwood. Split that, take that para cord off the Strider and lash it into the shaft and go small game hunting or spearfishing. One can rewrap the handle on the knife pretty fast with some practice (you'll have time on your hands I suppose). The cordage also comes in sufficient length to make small game/bird snares make box trap lanyards on the triggering stick or hold up what is left of your pants after a few months. With care, the cord will outlive you. As for the knife, it will outlive all your descendents. One was once used repeatedly as a climbing piton in a sheer rock face for crying out loud. ATS-34 or BG-42, a 6.5 inch blade, about a foot overall, in numerous configurations, and a lifetime warranty come with this full tang knife. Don't worry about removing that handle material either. The steel beneath the cord is relieved to make handling easier. Strider makes the toughest, most versatile knives in the world IMHO. Want a machete or an axe?--stick to the game trails--they're there for a reason all you hackers.
