    Damn, remind me to bring my cellphone next time I go chopping trees.

    Seriously though, I'm surprised you can be amputated with a pocket knife. I wouldn't expect it to be sharp enough.

    The article makes it seem like he uses more than one pocketknife. Imagine if one of them broke while he was trying to cut the leg.

    Yeah. I couldn't stand that. That's one tough guy.

    Reminds me of that climber who went nearly three days without food or water, while his arm was crushed by a dislodged boulder. He cut off his arm with his pocketknife and climbed all the way back down, nearly bleeding to death.

    These people are hardcore. It takes a lot of willpower to do something like that. I'm not quite sure I'd be able to do it myself, to be honest.

    That reminds me of that guy who cut his own arm to free himself from a rock which fell on it.

    Also a proof that the human body isn't made out of glass, as some people seem to think.
