Why so many knives. I was a butcher by trade for many years, so I know there are different knives for different jobs. Why not just a folding saw, and a quality 5"-6" fixed blade knife, in addition to your gerber tool. I know knives are not very heavy, but I wouldn't want to carry any more than I needed to.

Good system

You have a fairly good system here.
I would suggest some sort of water bottle, some paracord, a small bottle of raw honey(it will keep for a long long long time), a little package of Velveeta cheese, maybe a small bottle of vitamins, and a pound of Chia seeds (an almost totally perfect survival food). Harvesting birds, rabbits, squirrels whatever and these few things would keep you going a month or more.
