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.


Thanks to everyone for watching the shows and all the wonderful feedback and support!

For the fans that have been writing in, I hope you will understand that I simply don't have time to respond directly to everyone like I used to.

I will do my best to answer many queries in the FAQ forum on the website, since so many folks want to know about the same type of things, such as the knives and clothes used. Makes sense since that's all we have to survive with, haha! (Notice we never used a canteen or cup or spoon, etc. Try to go one day in your life without any vessel to hold water, then try to do a lot of hard work without one. In some ways, this was our biggest challenge.)

Happy survivalin'!
