Helle Wabakimi Knife

Helle has been making knives in Holmedal, Norway, since 1932. Its Wabakimi is a Scandinavian-style, fixed-blade designed in collaboration with survival and primitive skills expert "Survivorman" Les Stroud.
A medium sized, well-balanced knife, the Wabakimi is small enough for hip carry, yet amply sized for precise cutting and long carving sessions.
It features a 3.3-inch drop point blade made from triple laminated steel, and it has a three-quarter, partial tang reinforced with two robust pins. The curly birch wood handle includes a lanyard hole. A leather sheath is included.
The Wabakimi is the third Helle knife designed with Stroud, fitting between the larger Temagami wilderness knife and the light and compact Mândra neck knife. Stroud field-tested numerous prototypes of the Wabakimi over months to produce its final design ($184).
Kupilka FireSteel 8
For easy fire-making, even with gloves on or in humid weather, the Kupilka FireSteel 8 creates serious sparks up to 3000 degrees Celsius.
Made in Finland, the sustainably-produced FireSteel 8 features a European ferrocerium rod, an ethically-produced reindeer leather cord, and a compact striker that's a byproduct of the metal industry.
It was designed in collaboration with Karu Survival, Finland's leading company specializing in teaching bushcraft and survival skills. Weighing 1.66 ounces, there's no excuse to leave this essential behind ($21).
