"...nylons are good for quick polishing the odd pair of boondockers or shoes..."

Indeed they are. But you've gotta have a pretty good shine going first. I won't bore you with the stories of trading a dog tag for a pair of nylons. For shoe polising purposes, really...

Despite the extra weight, There are some things that I prefer not to do without. Having the use of eating utensils is one of those things. I carry the HoBo knife, made of stainless steel, and has a knife, fork, spoon, corkscrew, and awl. If I have the time and secure place to stop and cook a meal (normal ops now), then I intend to "act" civilized, and eat with proper utensils, messkit plate, a proper cup (canteen cup), and a bandanna as a napkin. This act is a treat to me, and is to be relished.

Yes,,,I know,,,I am a sick puppy,,,A man should know and acknowledge his limitations!!!!
The best luck is what you make yourself!

Stomach acid has a pH of 3.0 for a reason.....so you can use one knife on a camping or backpacking trip.
