How to Survive in Wild Nature Only with a Knife

Survival in a temperate environment is easy if you know how. In the woods you can die of many different things. However, simply with knowledge and taking advantage of what one knows, woods can become a home and a new reality. With a simple blade, one can build the tools and means to survive.

Note: Before reading the information below, realize that the temperature determines the priorities in nature. If the temperature is below 5 degrees during the night, fire is the most important requirement. However if the temperature rises to more than 32 degrees during the day, you have to move and work at night and sleep under cover during the day.

1. Find the water. It is the thing that comes first. You get stuck somewhere in a wild but temperate area during the late morning, and you don't know where you are. This is not a problem. You don't know where you are, but you know where to go ... downhill. This is because the water obeys the laws of gravity and you want water first because you can only survive three days without it. Move to the lowest point you can find.

2. Make friends with trees. On the downhill road, learn about three different trees.
The white birch. Look for a white tree recognizable by the materials that resemble paper. This is an important tree, called white birch. Not only is the internal bark edible, but the outer one can be used as a waterproof container (if it is not punctured). Moreover, many do not know it, it is possible to make a hole in the tree and get a sweet spicy sap very similar to that of maple. Some other useful features are these:

  • You can cook a soup in birch bark, because it does not burn if it has liquid inside.
  • Birch bark can be used as a temporary rope.
  • Birch bark, the white paper layer, is an excellent bait for lighting fires.
  • White birch can be carved to make a good stick.
  • Birch bark has been used in the making of canoes by native populations.
The American lime tree. The second tree that you must know how to recognize is called lime tree. This tree is easily recognized. It has a gray bark, sometimes venous, and very large heart-shaped leaves. Do not confuse this tree with the maple of the elk, which has leaves with three tips. This tree is important, because it is going to become the source of rope, straps and, finally, your backpack. You will begin to see this tree, when you get close to the water, it is more thirsty than you and it can also be a source of water, if you don't feel stupid sucking from the side of a tree.

The common maple. The third and final tree you need to recognize is the common maple. This is going to become your walking stick, and also your haven. It is a very hard wood with a smooth greyish bark. Now imagine the flag of Canada, which has a Canadian maple leaf. If you don't know the Canadian flag, take a book and learn to recognize it before going into the woods.

3. Cut some linden bark. If there is no water, move to the base of a hill or mountain where it is very likely that a stream or river will flow near the base of the tree. This is the time when the knowledge of the trees will be useful.

  • Find a lime tree. As mentioned above, the linden loves water and high banks.
  • Use the knife to cut the bark horizontally around the trunk. Do this at the base and make another cut about 1.20 meters above the first.
  • Now cut the bark vertically straight from the top line to the bottom line.
  • Note that the top line looks like a T where the two lines meet. This T is where you put your thumb nails.
  • Now gently remove these two edges from the white wood. You should now have a curved rectangle. 

  • Now the easiest part:
  • Cut this rectangle into as many vertical stripes as small as you can. Ideally they should be about 6 mm wide.
  • Now turn these strips upside down with a shiny wet layer on the back, THIS IS THE LAYER YOU'LL USE FOR THE ROPE.
  • Gently pull away the green outer bark from this thin sheet of wood. Note that the green part will be significantly thicker than the thin material you need.
  • Twist these thin strips around themselves so that each of them forms a ring about 7.5 centimeters in diameter.
  • Use green garbage to wrap around three-quarters of the rope.
  • Put this jumble of rope around your wrist so you won't find it between your feet.
  • Use the other 1/4 rope to make braces, a belt and, above all, an arm strap to hold the knife.
  • All the green waste bark should be stored and tied to you in some way.
  • After all this work you will most likely be thirsty. Fortunately, all you have to do is go downhill to get water.

4. Splashes in the mud. While getting some water, there is a very important step that will save you a lot of trouble later. While you are near the water, it is important to cover yourself with a thin film of blue clay or mud if the clay is not available. This patina must cover every piece of uncovered skin and will be your only defense against leeches, horse flies and ticks. The best advice is to take it cheerfully, this step is very important and the seriousness will not help either the morale or the situation. Enjoy the carefree feeling you left behind.

5. Invite some friends. After you get your armor, it's time to prepare some traps. Find traces of game, which should be scattered around the banks of the water source. Take about 6 of your strips and make a knot of about 2.5 cm in diameter at the end. Put the other end of the linden lace in this knot and put the trap at a suitable height for the game you are dealing with. Small tracks indicate small game, large traces should be avoided. For rabbits, raccoons, quails and partridges, place the trap between 10 and 25 centimeters above the ground. For further prudence, you could rub some mud around this knot to mask the smell and appearance of the recently processed linden.

6. Light a fire. Now, if it's getting late, it's best to light a fire. It is often best to collect a lot of dry wood in the first place, with small twigs and small logs. For methods to light a fire, type "how to light a fire" in the wikiHow search directory. The fire bow method works particularly well with the lime tree. Before lighting, clean a circle of about 2 meters around the site of the fire. Choose a point that has no branches immediately above the fire. 

Collect as many stones as possible to limit the fire and prevent it from spreading. However, a ring of stones will trap and reflect heat inward making it easier to continue. One of the most important aspects to remember about fire is to respect it. Keep it under control. Once you have lit, it is important to keep the flame low, so that the fire does not consume too much wood. You certainly don't want to go back to the woods to get more wood.

The bugs would slaughter you. The thin layer of mud or clay blocks their bites but not their sound. On a psychological level, the simple fact of having them in front of your eyes and within earshot should suggest you to stock up well before lighting the fire.

7. Build a shelter. One does not really need a shelter under normal conditions. However, if one is needed, or there is the possibility that it rains, the most important thing is that it is small, dry and away from the ground. Don't waste time building a small cabin or even a bigger shelter than your body. 

This is just a waste of energy and resources, and it's easier to keep the heat in a small space. The large moss clusters that you can use to cover a small wooden frame work well. Furthermore, birch bark can be used to make excellent coverage. The best solution, however, is to use large amounts of coniferous wood and ferns. If you are quick, you can collect enough for a 15 cm barrier that will keep the rain and heat away.

Dried leaves also work very well for waterproofing. If you expect rain, make a layer of leaves and whatever it is as often as possible (90 cm is almost completely waterproof). In two hours you can not sleep comfortably, but at least in dry and warm.

8. Stay conscious of the fire. When you sleep, make sure you are aware of the distance of the fire. Daze can get you very close without anyone to take you away. If you don't feel comfortable with a fire lit while you sleep, you can turn it off and dig a hole where you intend to sleep by putting embers in it. With a layer of earth you can lie on it and sleep very comfortably.

9. Worry about breakfast. When you wake up, be aware that insects come out at dawn. Now is the time to get your metabolism moving and move quickly, because the insects can slip into your eyes. Furthermore, the movement urges the body to produce heat through effort. The only problem is that you might miss the motivation to move. This could derive from the fact that you had set traps the day before and that one of them could have breakfast, lunch and dinner. So to increase body heat, move from one trap to another. You may have been lucky.

10. Tighten the strap. Now it is important to prepare for two contingencies.

The first is that you have absolutely nothing and you look very hungry and oppressed. If this is the case, simply approach the birch tree and cut a triangle about 10 cm from the bark. Turn a corner towards the ground. You can eat the contents of this bark because it is very nutritious. Also, a small trickle of sugary sap comes out of the corner of this triangle. Don't worry if it's not much. Surprisingly, a human being can survive with a tablespoon of food a day for a short time.

The second contingency is that you have taken something, most likely a rabbit or a small bird. There is a pretty good rule about eating animals: Don't eat anything that looks inedible . Otherwise, you can eat almost all parts of a bird if you cook them well enough ... and by pretty well I mean toasted.

Here's another rule with food: don't eat where you sleep, or don't sleep where you eat. Scraps and entrails will attract predators (ie bears). Keep your innards, beaks, bones, etc., away from your shelter.

11. Follow the stream. Now that you know how to get food and water, it is important to recognize the other use of waterways. Humanity was not built on the shoulders of a man, but on the banks of rivers. To find humanity, just descend the river downstream. Remember that not all waterways lead to civilization, they could have a underground course for miles and you could waste a lot of energy unnecessarily. Using all the things described above, a person can live indefinitely in the woods.


  • For the patches, look for a common spider. The spider web can be inserted into open wounds or cuts to stop bleeding. Even a plant called millefeuille (Achillea millefoglie) can be used for the same purpose and also has other uses.
  • For the fire bait, look for a fir tree. Bubbles on fir bark may contain highly flammable resin.
  • For energy, look for soy plants and sources of vitamin B, as well as sugary foods and fruits, such as berries, to supply a large amount of energy to an empty stomach. Be very careful and make sure you don't eat the wrong vegetation, because many plants are poisonous.
  • For the antiseptic, look for the common bee. The gray substance that exudes within their nests is one of the most effective antiseptics in the world.



Berries are common in the woods and are an excellent food. However, pay attention to the competition. Bears are often great connoisseurs of berries and often live near this source of nutrition. Most bears walk away if you meet them outdoors. However, they could consider you a competitor in this scenario and try to get yourself out of the competition.

The best experience with a wild bear is to never meet him. Like most animals, they naturally fear humans. Making a lot of noise, when you walk (producing metallic clanging, whistling, singing, hitting with sticks, etc.) will warn them of your presence and will usually send them away. Obviously, this is counterproductive when you go hunting. 

Some might argue that grizzlies and polar bears are curious animals and will head for unnatural sounds. However the grizzlies and polar bears are generally found north of the habitable regions. 98% of the grizzly population around the world lives in Alaska.

Never get close to a bear cub. Even if you don't see her, mother bear is close and won't be happy with you. If you see a puppy, move away quickly.

If you have tobacco, be careful that the bears may be attracted to the smell of smoke. Blood also attracts bears and other predators, so it burns old bandages or bury them away from your shelter.

Mountain Lions

Mountain lions and big cats are the exception to most game rules. You can't play dead with a mountain lion and you can't sow them. Furthermore, even if you walk away slowly and out of sight, you will undoubtedly be followed by waiting for any vulnerabilities. The best advice is to be fierce and determined. They will pounce on you and avoid them is not an option.

However, there is a technique to use. Hold your left forearm in front of your neck and wait for the lion to bite. It will bite the forearm to eliminate defenses around the neck. While having the jaws tightened, it quickly sinks the knife upward into the skin of the lower jaw. Due to head trauma he may not let go, he continues to sink the knife, rotate it and push it away in one movement. If he is not dead, he will most likely try to rub his head against rocks or trees.

Zig zag away from the injured animal. Wait a half hour and return to make sure he is dead. Now you have food. Put honey on a spider web and apply on the arm. Check periodically and make sure you don't lose blood so as not to attract other predators.


Ticks can be one of the most challenging parasites in a temperate environment both psychologically and physically. They are small arachnids with eight legs, which like insects are attracted by heat sources. They often lie in wait in the grass at 60 - 90 cm in height from where they will transfer to your clothes. From there they will move towards the head or pubis, which are the highest sources of heat in the human body. From there, they secrete a local anesthetic that they use to hide their movement when they pierce your skin. In this state they resemble a piece of corn loosely attached to your flesh. However, when you touch their paws they jump out and creep in, making even the toughest of woodsmen shudder. Several methods of removal and some misconceptions are discussed below.

Never burn a tick. Often their guts drain into the open cavity they use to feed themselves, ie under the skin. If this method is used, it is necessary to cauterize one centimeter of skin around the infestation area or the risk of contracting Lyme disease (borreliosis) and rocky mountain fever (rickettsiosis). There are more effective and less painful ways to remove a tick.

Never tear the tick forcefully, their jaw-like anchors will remain in the tissues and may give you rocky mountain fever or Lyme disease.

Removal method: find a fir. Look for a Christmas tree with bubbles on the bark. Take a stick, insert it into the bubble and rotate the end of the stick over the bubble, putting pressure on it, so as to squeeze the resin. Now spread the resin generously over the mint. Use more bubbles if necessary. Now with the resin on the arm he finds a very fat tree or plant. Ash works well. Now notice that the mint has risen a little. Spread the essence of ash on the mint as much as possible, and repeatedly cleanse the resin. The mint will pull up because it cannot breathe. After the tick has been removed, spread the essence in the area to lift the resin. If all this doesn't work, cover the area with peanut butter, or animal fat, wait and then wash with water, the resin will come off easily.

Intestinal Parasites

An effective solution is to find a fern that grows in almost all temperate environments. This fern is called forage fern. During the first days of his life, it looks like a small ostrich feather with a brownish-white hairiness. The typical forage species are about 10 cm high. During this phase it is edible both raw and cooked. It is, however, a light poison that changes the environmental conditions of your gut, making survival a daunting task for any parasite. As the plant ages, it becomes more poisonous. If the plant is tightly curled, you can eat one every hour, or if it is fully grown, one every day to get rid of the parasites.

Poison Ivy

The poison ivy or ivy of Canada is a small plant with three leaves that is usually found very close to the ground. In order to ward off any possible predator, its leaves contain a chemical called urusiolo, which binds to skin cells and creates a very prominent and annoying rash that can last up to five or six weeks. If you touched them, a simple eruption will appear in the early stages. However, for severe reactions expect significant blisters and / or purulent effusion. The methods and hearth for treatment are listed below.

Never burn poison ivy: smoking is very toxic. Furthermore, the urusiol cannot be destroyed or eliminated by ordinary means.

Never cut your blisters or try to remove them. However, the exudate that comes out is not contagious and will not spread the eruption in ordinary circumstances.

Heard: The clothes won't protect you from poison ivy. The urusiolo will go through the clothes in just fifteen minutes. If you know you have come into contact, do not touch the area because the urusiolo will spread. Rather, take off your dress using thick fabric or bark to protect your hand and put it in running water for at least an hour. After a while the urusiolo will be eliminated from the suit.

Useful method: if contact occurs, in less than seven minutes the chemical can usually be washed with soap before it binds with the skin cells. However, the chemical is oily, so soap is needed to wash it away. In other words, water alone is not enough. However, this method is very controversial because soap can act as a vehicle for the urusiol, spreading it in any case.

Useful method: immerse your body in water for an extended period of time. The oil is lighter than water, so the urusiolo can, by physical rule, go away from the skin before binding.

Useful / heard method: Alcohol does not dissolve or remove the urusiol alone. However, it can be diluted enough to be removed with a cloth or spongy material.

Conclusion: the urusiol cannot be eliminated, once it is bound; the only thing that can be done with natural methods is to reduce the itching or treat the reaction. Therefore, the only one who can truly treat it effectively is a doctor armed with Tecnu or a suitable detergent.
