Making Fire: Gear Test Part One

Getting a fire going using fire steel, birch bark tinder and the backside of my knife. Eventhough the kindling I used was quite damp if broken up fine enough and bundled loosely it will ignite. This series of vids is testing out the gear I would typically take on a camping trip.

Making a Cord-Grip Knife Handle pt. 2

This is how I prefer to cord-wrap handles. The cord is 550 olive-green paracord, the knife is a 1/4″ thick, 7.75″ long (3″ blade) blank made of 1095 high carbon steel that I’m working on. Post what you’d next like to see in a video in the comments section, or in PM’s. Hardening, Tempering, Sharpening, attaching/shaping a handle, etc. Just let me know, and I’ll do what I can to oblige!
