On this episode of Wizard Gear I’ll be showing you the Kukri known as the Vakra from Zombie Tools.
When living out in the wilderness, it’s important to bring tools which have as much utility as possible while taking up a minimal amount of space and weighing as little as possible. The Kukri is the traditional weapon of the Gurkhas of Nepal, and replaces both a machete and camp axe.
On the episode of Wizard Gear I’ll be showing you one of the most important tools I keep with me at all times – The Boruit Tactical Flashlight.
This hardy flashlight is compact, waterproof and recharges through USB. This means I can keep it in my pants pocket at all times, even during heavy rain, and when it starts to run low I can recharge it using my folding USB solar panel. It has multiple brightness settings up to 1200 lumens. It also has different colored light modes, and various flashing modes for emergency situations.
Of all tools I keep on me while trekking and living in the wilds, the Leatherman Wave multi-tool is the last one I would give up. It serves so many purposes that I use it multiple times a day, and feel naked without it.
While I’m traveling on foot with just my backpack I always take my folding solar panel to charge my various devices. It can power anything which uses USB, including my phone, lighter, and lots of other useful toys. I love the feeling of independence that is provided by knowing I can rely on the free energy of the sun to keep my technology running.
