[SHOT 2017] Bushcraft Survive and Thrive Kit

While this may be something you would typically expect to see over at our sister website, it will still interest a lot of you.  Industrial Revolution has teamed up with Dave Canterbury to release a package called the Bushcraft Survive & Thrive Kit.  The kit is made up of somethings that Canterbury sells, along with brands that Industrial Revolution deals in.

SHOT Show 2017: Bushcraft Survive and Thrive Kit

From Canterbury you'll receive the book Bushcraft 101, a nesting cup with lid, pot hanger and bottle.  The hanger can be used with both the pot using the included holes in it along with in the opening of the bottle if you want to boil a larger quantity of water.  We've actually read his book and its a well illustrated, informative read.

From UCO you'll receive an excellent candle lantern and matches which we have used and recommend.  New for the show was the SWEETFIRE strikable fire starter.  It combines a fuel cube and a match into a single unit with a burn time of up to 7 minutes.  The SWEETFIRE is actually made out of a byproduct from the sugar extraction process from cane.  While they aren't strike-anywhere, the box does include a striker on it.

Every good survival kit comes with a piece of sharpened steel and in the case of this one its a Morakniv (Mora as everyone else calls it) Kansbol.  There is a dual grind on the blade and the heel of the blade was ground flat for sparking ferrocerium rods.

While on the subject of the Kansbol, they have a mounting platform for it called the Multi Mount. It is not part of the kit but is something that you can pick up separately or with a Kansbol. It is also compatible with the Garberg the Mora full tang knife. The new mount allows you to attach directly to PALS webbing but opens up other mounting options with a bit of creativity.

Check out more from Industrial Revolution here, or if your at the show head on over to booth 1446.

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.

Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc
