Hosts Aaron and Jonathan recap lessons gained from their knife sharpening class with Master Knife Smith Bob Kramer and have a general discussion about knives, their importance, than uses.
In this episode, Alana Barfield joins hosts Aaron and Jason to discuss what may be the ultimate survival challenge.
Could you survive Naked in the wilderness with only two manmade survival tools?
Sounds pretty tough–don’t you think…

Internet trolls will be internet trolls. We live in a day and age were people watch heavily edited “Reality TV” and think they know a person.
And sometimes those impressions are correct. Sometimes those perceptions are skillfully crafted edits.
But the reality is you’ll never know.
Visitors are free to comment on this episode of ITRH. However, comments that consist purely of name calling and nonsense will be deleted.
In full disclosure, Alana is a friend to us personally and to the show. In both instances, she’s been generous with her time and help on many projects. That being said, we wouldn’t let mere internet-trollery stand no matter who the guest is or what our relationship to them.
So if you showed up just to post a name calling rant, save your breath; I’m going to delete it. (Find something more productive to do with your time and life than trolling “reality tv” cast on the internet.)
One last note about the show itself: We don’t edit guests for meaning or personality no matter who they are. ITRH is edited for verbal ticks, inaccurate information that could get someone hurt, or a section of a recording that is just plain boring and doesn’t add to the overall episode.
Anyway…. If you have a legitimate comment or question, let it rip.
