A knife is a must. A quality blade can be used to split wood, to skin and hunt animals, to defend oneself, and to cut almost anything that needs to be cut.

CRKT Drifter, stainless gray handle. --- The Drifter is likely the best EDC knife on the current market. Its stout frame-lock design seals tight with zero blade play. The 8Cr14Mov metal is comparable to 440B and AUS-8 (~0.75% carbon); it retains a deadly edge but still sharpens quickly in the field. The blade is legal in most states, measuring just under three inches. --- Great value ($40 MSRP)
