The Swiss Army Knife Book & Giveaway!
I was recently sent a copy of The Swiss Army Knife Book by nature instructor Felix Immler and I have to say that it is a fantastic book. It walks you through a variety of projects, from making simple tools to setting up camp, all the while just using natural materials and a pocket knife. There are 7o0 beautiful step by step photos to guide you through, I’ve also enjoyed watching Felix’s Youtube channel for extra help and inspiration.
The Swiss Army Knife Book begins by teaching you how to make simple, improvised tools, such as a digging stick and a wooden mallet. I haven’t been brave enough to try any projects yet, but I think that even I could make myself a usable digging stick!
The book then takes you through how to build and furnish your own camp. It really is quite impressive what can be achieved with very few tools.
Felix says “I hope to bridge the gap with this book, by showing just how much fun you can have by making everyday objects for yourself, by using only natural materials and your pocket knife as tools, creating a comfortable camp in the wild and having a thrilling trip amid the great outdoors”.
This would be a great book for families with teens and older children, who are looking for adventurous ways to spend time outdoors together.
