Wiltshire Staysharp knives.....

The kind that re-sharpen themselves every time you store tham back in their supplied 'scabbard'.

Nothing worse than a blunt knife..!!

Re: What is your best provisioning tip?

Equially it is well known in Australia that copious internal libations of Bundaberg Rum are the perfect antidote for the bite of the Red-Back Spider.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.....

Right on! I have two of these knives, one large and one small and thought I was the only one on the planet who had discovered them. One of their best features for boating is that you can throw the whole thing in a drawer and know that the blade won't be damaged when the boat thrashes about.

Re: What is your best provisioning tip?

Janet-
In the quest to prevent dull blades, I found out that you can actually buy simple plastic blade guards for all sorts of knives. Knife just tucks in the middle, and the plastic is durable. About $8 each in the kitchen stores, often $3 online.

No more cardboard and tape scabbards for me!

Do filleting knives work well for this or are the blades too thin?

Re: What is your best provisioning tip?

Sew up several palm size canvas bags (4"x4"). Fill them with rock salt. Put a canvas salt bag in your dried food container. Keeps rice, pasta, beans, etc. dry and fresh.

64-
No such thing as "too thin" if you buy the right size to fit it. If you stick a 1/2" tall filter blade in a 2" tall sheath...probably not.

Re: What is your best provisioning tip?

Hot chocolate..?? Lindt Dark Chocolate. 5 tsps per cup. Expensive, but worth every penny.

Dissolve the choc flakes with a dash of boiling water, add hot milk. Stir briskly and drink slowly....
