Hello all I am a 36 year old Canadian male that lives in Eastern Ontario. I love backpacking, biking, canoeing, hanging out in the woods, primitive skills and doing weights.

I am a newly graduated RN (yeah I'm a late starter) and love learning from the people around me and hope I can teach others as well, and help others as I have been helped myself.

Of course I love knives as my name indicates and believe the amount of knives & bikes a person should have is n+1, where n is the number of bikes/knives that I presently own.

I spend almost all of my time in the woods on my own and love to hike and bike solo. Of course friends and strangers always add fun to the situation.

Congratulations Knifeknut on your recent graduation. Interesting profession and the one to be in (medical) :)
You're here just in time to teach us about the dependability of an IV bag Administration set, 15 drops/ml. We are having a discussion on using the roller clamp to regulate alcohol fuel into a remote fueled stove system.

We welcome you here and hope we can learn from your solo adventures in the northern climates of the great province of Ontario, Canada.

Where does the term Canuk come from?

Hi Knifeknut, I've been up to your neck of the woods. Really love it up there.

Canadian wilderness canoing is THE REAL THING, everything else is just practice.

I have paddled the Missinaibi, the Spanish, the Bloodvein, and the Pukaskwa Coast of Lake Superior.
