MWW: Amazon Episode

Since so many of you have asked about the knives and clothing used in the episodes, I will be posting those details after each new episode airs. Due to the huge volume of e-mail, unfortunately it's just not possible to respond to each individually, so hopefully this will be a way to pass along that information to those who want to know.


Mykel: SUPER DRY brand WWII Vintage re-make of Japanese Imperial Army
Jungle Warfare shirt
Ruth: Lucky nrand Elite shirt, Wrangler pants

Reason: These were used because they were thick enough not to tear into shreds by all the sharp thorns as we went through thick brush. They were a bit hotter, but as they were loose fitting, they retained the sweat and as such,actually kept us cooler, since we dropped the t-shirts so no wetness remained against our skin. They are 100% cotton as we both prefer natural fibers like silk, cotton and wool.


Mykel: Cold Steel Kukri
Ruth: Cold Steel SRK

Reason: We had to use different knives on each episode, so, these were our choices for this show.


  1. Thanks for info on the gear, Sir!!

  2. I'm glad you didnt whack that Coatimundi. They're harmless, and actually make good pets. They have the nick name of miners cat, because the miners in the US kept them as pets.

  3. Food is food when you're hungry, but we didn't want blood and guts in the shelter, and didn't want to risk hitting Ruth swinging in the dark, but glad we didn't have to kill it, too.
