Primitive Tongs – Essential Survival Tools


Learn to make a super simple set of tongs from a Hickory sapling with Matt Tate, Owner of American Survival Co. and Certified Survival Instructor. Tongs are a great tool for wilderness survival and allow you to manipulate your fire, can make a great cooking tool, and can help aid in water purification if you are using a method like rock boiling.
