Hi, I came across this forum while searching for reviews on Matt Graham's survival knife. Here's my bushcraft background. I grew up on a tobacco farm, and now after being away for decades I live on that farm again. I majored in biological sciences at NC State. I recently retired after just-shy of 30 years in the Army, Army National Guard and Army Reserve, most of it on active duty. I was a light infantry officer, which stresses "fieldcraft". At other times I was a mechanized infantry, field artillery and Chemical Corps officer. I make my living now as a subject matter expert on chemical, biological and nuclear defense. Oh, and I have a second degree black belt in Bujinkan, which is composed of 6 samurai ryu and 3 ninja ryu. If you ever saw Hakim Isler on "Naked and Afraid" his ToShinDo is basically the same martial art, taught by a guy who split off from Bujinkan. Another hobby of mine is traditional archery. My son and I studied archery under Bob Wesley who was taught by the great Howard Hill. I also SCUBA dive. I camp and backpack a lot, mostly solo. I never thought of myself as a bushcrafter, but I like all the Dual Survival and Les Stroud TV shows. I like watching Survival Lilly on YouTube. I'm impressed with what she does and knows with her being a young woman without a lot of experience on her resume. I also have an interest in primitive cultures from the Bushmen in the Kalahari to Cro-Magnon man. I spent some time with Jivaro Indians in Peru. I lived in Oklahoma and enjoyed seeing all the various shelters at the museum in Anadarko. Between the military and vacations, I've been to 30 countries and 48 states. Some of my favorite places are Japan, Panama, Guatemala, Germany, and Estonia. All that said, I don't really consider myself a "bushcrafter". You can see where all my hobbies skirt around the edges of bushcraft. I've never hung out with bushcrafters or been to a primitive survival course. I still think matches or a cigarette lighter are the best way to start a fire Maybe I'll learn differently here.
