No Stone to Throw

Knives Illustrated - - Edge Of Survival -

In the Ama­zon jun­gle, it is ac­tu­ally quite com­mon to see the indige­nous peo­ple use their ma­chetes to dig roots out of the ground. At first, this takes some get­ting used to, be­cause we ex­pect rocks and things in the ground in North Amer­ica that can re­ally dam­age a blade. How­ever, in the Ama­zon jun­gle there are no rocks of any kind in the ter­rain, so there is vir­tu­ally no dam­age to your blade when us­ing it to dig or chop deep roots un­der the sur­face.
