After learning to make and use a bow-drill to make a fire, I never take for granted ferro rods, lighters, matches, etc.
Same thing for containers, they suck to make and are crude when forced into it. A stainless steel canteen is probably what I would give up last. Drinking directly from ponds or creeks is not cool...
