>watch American knife review of a bushcraft knife
>“Yea when I stabbed it into a tree and twisted it back and forth the tip bent and batoning this hard wood twisted the blade so it sucks!!”
>“What if I’’m in a desperate survival situation with ONLY this knife??!!”

Why do Americans have such a delusional attitude towards their knives?
In Europe everyone will just use an axe to chop wood, or only use the knife to split a log then a wedge to break it.

I just want a reasonable review of a knife, not see idiots try to cut a huge log in half with it.

Boots will remain dry until the next day. Trail runners dry off in an hour. The only reason having wet feet is an issue is because you don’t hike enough to have calluses so your shaft vagina-like feet are prone to blisters.

I literally just looked this up out of curiosity. Turns out they were introduced in the 1900s intentionally for sport hunting.
Anyways, while you may very well be technically right (the best kind of right) regarding the differences between boars and pigs (I have next to no knowledge on what makes them any different) the two species still do inhabit the same region, so effectively it's a question of the difference between breeds of dog when OP asks what is sufficient to fend them off. You can punt kick a chiwawa fifty yards, but daisy the pitbull will fuck you up if you aren't prepared.
I stand by my advice.

Basically I want to explore ancient ruins by torchlight. I'd also like to find treasure (if possible,) and test my blade against whatever happens to live in those ruins.
Dead serious. I'm bored of the bland day to day, and I've always dreamed of becoming an adventurer. I'm in Europe and can travel anywhere, am in peak physical shape, and have hoarded weapons from Kult of Athena.
Any recommendations? Thanks bros.
