camp tools safety guide

Camp tools safety

Camp tool safety is common sense and simple as practicing neatness by keeping you campsite orderly. You probably brought several tools with you such as an axe, hatchet, say, hammer, shovel, machete and who knows what else.

You don't want these items laying all around the campsite. That could make walking around the site very dangerous after it get dark. Pick a spot for your tools and make sure everyone knows where that spot is located. If there are trees in the campsite one of them could make a good spot for storing the tools.

Keeping Knives Safe

Knives can be dangerous if they are not stored properly. Knives should be kept in their own pouches or other type of container to prevent unnecessary incidents. This is not only to protect you from the knives but also to protect the knives edge and keep it sharp.

If your knives did not come with their own pouches or sheaths, it is a good idea to purchase these for camping purposes. Also, you must be careful while handling knives. Anyone who has not proven his or her competence in handling a knife should not handle one at the campsite.

You should always keep the knife sharp, as a dull knife is more dangerous than a sharp knive. Sounds backwards but it's not, because with a dull knife you will have to use additional force to make your cuts. Also you should be careful not to misuse your knives.

You may have various knives at the campsite. You will need cooking knives and possibly a hunting style knife. Cooking knives should be kept in their own sanitary container and away from the hunting knife. A pocketknife can also be very handy if you need to cut twine, rope, etc. Keep all knives away from children who do not know how to use them properly.

Enjoy your camping trip and practice camp tools safety.
