|4 Prong Fish Spear|
A well made spear will give the survivalist the upper hand in many survival scenarios. The spear gives one a sense of protection against the wild, a sense of balance while walking the vast terrain, and gives the ability to help obtain food.
The spear gives you that distance you need between a predator and the wielder. That distance, with the ability to inflict pain, injury or death to an attacker may me the different between life or death in a wilderness or urban survival situation.
When time permits, the spear should be the first weapon or tool you should think about making before any other tool, that's if you do not already have a suitable source of protection, like a rifle or pistol. Even then I would still make one to use while walking about to help give you advanced warning of snakes and possible hidden holes beneath vegetation or snow.
A red or orange cloth or something similar can be tied to the end of the spear to be held high to help catch the attention of a rescue party if you happen to be in tall vegetation. The spear has many uses- many that will save your life.
