  1. I've been using the G.I. mess kit for forty-six years. I combine it with the G.I. canteen cook set because they're supposed to be used together as one unit. Together, with the canteen, canteen cup and lid, and canteen stove, they provide all you need.

    I spent a bit over eleven months in the wilderness by myself with this gear, plus a coffeepot, and never had a single problem.

    The only thing I would add is a hanging pot such as the Russian or German mess kit pots. You don't need them at all, but they do come in handy, and also provide a place for emergency food, or for spices, cutlery, an alcohol stove, or even a second G.I. cup, lid, and stove.

  2. I still have some of these. Stainless Steel, this design was in the US military since at least WWI, minor modifications. The eating utensils are fine and the spoon works great for soups and stews. As you say the knife is basic but functional. I like the cutting board you made, great idea! The horn cup is pretty cool too. I first used these while in the Army 1970, just like the one you have. I also carry the canteen and canteen cup. Looks like you are set for business my friend. Happy camping for you and Max.
