[VIDEO] How To Turn A Cigarette Into A Sharp Weapon

One of the most critical skills a survivalist can possess and master is the ability to improvise and utilize anything at hand to achieve the tasks and work needed to survive a SHTF moment.

That means being able to take common items and use them for purposes they were not intended to be used for originally. It also means accumulating as much knowledge as possible to gain the skills to be able to make the best of any situation.

In this case, a cigarette is transformed into an amazingly effective and sharp cutting utensil. In a pinch, if you did not have a cutting utensil, knowing how to do this could come in handy.

Check out the video on the next page to see how a cigarette could be fashioned into a sharp, cutting tool.

    I feel like this skill is borderline useless. Im not an inmate trying to defend myself. Any human with common sense could make a weapon out of a near infinite amount of items outside his door. I don’t need to know how to make a prison shank from a cigarette
