Based on an an­cient tool found in the Great Red Desert near Far­son, Wy­oming, the Far­son Blade Sur­vival Tool is an ex­tremely ver­sa­tile blade that takes on all the tasks per­formed by a knife and hatchet.

We’ve used it to chop, slice, skin, whit­tle and even shave (which, con­sid­er­ing the ed­i­tor of this mag­a­zine, is quite a feat for a non­pow­ered tool). Fash­ion a han­dle out of a stick, lash on the Far­son blade with the 550 cord, and it’s a tough lit­tle hatchet. And it’s so light, we didn’t even no­tice it when it was car­ried in a pack. It comes ra­zor-sharp out of the box.
