Survival Tip #230
Sharpen Your Blades
You should always maintain your blades, but the one time many people don’t realize blades need sharpened is the moment you buy them. Most stores and all online retailers sell the knives in dull condition. I am assuming this is a safety measure, but before using your new knife or hatchet make sure you sharpen it. Especially keep this in mind if you happen to be doing some looting in the Primal Age.
