Psychology of Survival: The Danger of Comfort

We all have heard the clichés on comfort: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” and “A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing grows there”. As with all clichés, there might be a truth hidden behind those words.

Both end of the spectrum fascinate me: People who have successfully endured things you wouldn’t wish upon your darkest enemy, all the way to how people play tricks on their own mind and not being able to even predict their own behaviour.

Experience with the Condor Nessmuk (long term review)

About a year and a half ago I bought the Condor Nessmuk, after reading the book ‘Woodcraft and Camping’ by George W. ‘Nessmuk’ Sears. The book is written in a time when knowing your way in the woods was a vital skill.

Upon reading ‘Woodcraft and Camping’, I went on a search to find a knife that met his description as good as possible. That is when I bought the Condor Nessmuk, and decided to use it extensively for the one and a half year that would come next. This post describes my experiences on using this knife. Read More
