living off the land

In the grand scheme of things, it really hasn’t been very long since the majority of people living in the area now known as the lower 48 derived their sustenance directly from the land they lived on or environs close by. There were fewer cities and they were much smaller and less densely populated, and towns were more of a meeting place than where many people made their homes. Most folks lived on farms or larger parcels of property, and the common method of acquiring their food was to harvest or grow it or trade for it. The rule of the day was to grow what you ate and eat what you grow, and the harvest was intended to produce enough so there would be adequate food to get them through…

quality time with matt graham

Survival expert, check! Primitive skills instructor, check! Rock climber and triathlete, check! These are all true statements without a doubt, but what truly exemplifies Matt Graham as “exceptional” is his ability to make even the most difficult challenges when deep within the wild appear as a Sunday stroll through a neighborhood park. While some outdoorsmen perceive their time out in nature as a challenge or a virtual “Mother Nature against me,” Matt’s philosophy is quite different. Since a very young age, he has developed a bond — or even more accurately, a relationship — with the outdoors that few people can emulate, let alone, fully understand. Matt’s unique approach to surviving in diverse environments originates from his love of primitive skills, ancient weaponmaking and proficiency, and his ability to use little or no…

matt’s little bugger fixed blade knife

Designed by Matt, the Little Bugger was created to fill the niche of an all-purpose knife while being lightweight and compact enough to store nearly anywhere. Matt, while out in the wild, usually wears a minimal amount of clothing, so he needed a knife that could fit easily into his shorts and stay put while running, climbing or trekking through dense vegetation. This full-tang knife features a modified scandi grind, it stays razor sharp even after extended use, and is ready to tackle nearly any task in a variety of environments. .

matt, why the atlatl?

The atlatl is the hunting tool I feel the greatest connection with. There is something magical about the way it sails through the air with precision. I believe for the amount of time required to build and maintain it, it’s still one of the most effective tools, primitive or otherwise. It’s also been used as a hunting tool in the evolution of humanity perhaps longer than any other effective hunting tool, and has been used by every culture, color, or race of people on the planet. I made my first atlatl 23 years ago. It wasn’t that great, so I presumed it was a tool you had to grow up with to be proficient at, a thing for old history books. However, my curiosity led me to immediately make about…

budget-friendly bushcrafters

Bushcraft. For me, the word conjures images of Ray Mears setting up camp in the forests of England, on the lake shores of Canada or along the ›ords of Norway. I see visions of canoes laden with canvas packs and an elaborately built bush camp, with axes and knives shimmering in the light of a campfire. I can almost smell the wood smoke as I type these words... The word bushcraft has become heavily romanticized and is often associated with expensive gear and skills that can, to some, seem mystical and, to many, seem unattainable. However, bushcraft is not about expensive gear or exotic locations. Bushcraft is using and making tools to create the things needed to live comfortably in a natural environment. Knowledge is the most important thing to possess and…
