WHAT MAKES CHRIS TANNER TICK?

THE POPULAR PREPPER AND KNIFE DESIGNER SHARES HIS THOUGHTS WITH ASG.

Chris Tanner puts his Bark River JX5 Vengeful-1 knife through its paces in camp. It’s a big knife that’s agile enough for some small-knife tasks as well.

Go on social media or turn on the television, and you will find no shortage of survival “experts.” While there are some who are really good at what they do, nobody knows everything. We are all always learning, and we can often acquire new and valuable skills from those who know more than we do.

Some of these so-called experts are those preparing for the “zombie apocalypse” and the end of the world. Many spend way too much time trying to sell you gear you might or might not need as opposed to teaching you the skills you need to know.

Many are reactive, telling you what you should do after something happens, as if it is some sort of forgone conclusion that you have to endure the hardship to begin with.
