Herd this method described on a vid last night, it got me thinking so I thought I’d see if any of you guys think it is at all plausible.
I'll find a link to the vid later and edit this.
The story goes that when the Canadian government wanted the Inuit people to settle down (don't know the politics) some of course were less than happy
with this, one older guy in particular refused to go - his family, concerned for him took all his hunting equipment sled etc so he would have no
choice. (this is the good bit)
Then it is said still refusing to go he walked off, pulled down his sealskins and crapped into his hands. As his poo froze he moulded it into the
shape of a blade, applying spit to the cutting edge.
He then butchered one of the dogs, skinned it - somehow fashioned a harness for another dog, split the rib cage to use for his new sled and
disappeared off in to the sunset I suppose!
I don't doubt the principle here; after all it gets damn cold up there, but (remember the animal will loose body heat very very quickly) to butcher
a dog with his crappy knife? (Yes pun - shoot me
What d'ya all think?
I just typed S**t knife into google - pretty well known apparently!
