Striker knife and natural tinder fun.

Striker knives and natural tinder.

Just for fun and skills practice I cracked out some striker knives and natural tinder. The intent was to get coals not flames.

The milk weed ovum is a go! First it has to be torn in 1/2 for the fluffiest of the fluffiness.

Image

Worked

Image

Image

Did good on this chaga as well.

Image

Image

Sharp.

Image

Up next the controversial chaga and milkweed fluff stuffed milkweed pod.

Image

Here it is.

Image

The large striker knife. Crazy convexed sharpness of O1 joy.

Image

My aim was bad and the fluff wanted to suck up the dust or rather sift it away but the very edge caught a marginal carbon steel spark.

Image

Smoldering.

Image

I have always found flashover tinder alone to be sucky at getting flames from a coal and this was no exception.

Image

Thanks for looking.
