If you’re ready to go off the grid all Walden style, it would be best you planned that whole thing out ahead of time. Just wandering off and figuring it out as you go will most likely result in you being eaten by a bear. Pick up a copy of Rock The Shack: The Architecture of Cabins, Cocoons and Hide-Outs before you go. Rock The Shack is packed with 240 pages of dwellings that connect people back with nature (not with Duane Reades and packed Starbucks). From intricately detailed cabins to sparse tree houses, the book is loaded with getaway porn.
If you don’t have a cigar cutter on hand when you want to light up a cigar you need to get all MacGyver with it. And since a cigar cutter isn’t part of the average everyday carry collection, this can happen often. Instead of adding another item to your already packed pockets consider having your knife pull double duty. The Cigar Cutter Pocket Knife packs a cigar cutter right in the handle. Pair that with the long-lasting AUS-8 stainless blade and you have a tool that will assist in small chores and in enjoying a cigar when you’re done with them.
