Ask anyone interested in survival or survival situation preparation what they think the most versatile survival tool is and you are likely to get as many different answers as people you ask.
Some will mention a knife or firearm, others a binding tool like paracord or a fire starter; they will mention the tool they perceive they use the most for the most tasks.
What very few will mention is the common bucket.
This is because many do not consider the bucket a tool and of those who do, it is highly likely they overlook the lowly bucket mainly because it is not flashy, blends in and is very utilitarian.
