    Yeah, yeah "never batton your folder". Well I do and I did.:rolleyes:
    Just to test my skill/ability to get the job done if I had to.
    It's a split wood and twig fire. Hope you like it.

    Thanks for watching,

    Yeah, it can be done carefully. I don't get crazy with it for sure, kind of a last ditch sort of thing. I just like to practice with tools that I may have to use in a given situation.
    Thanks, guys.

    Definitely do able, but does make you miss a fixed blade. Doesn't it, Iz.

    You know it, M.
    It's the dog's life if you don't have a fixed blade. Just like it's the dog's life if you don't have an axe in winter. All do able but not fun.:D

    Another great video. I may suck at wild edibles and knots, but they are much lower on my list. Building a fire in any condition is my #1 practiced skill. Thanks for teaching again, Iz.

    For sure, brother. I agree, practicing getting a sustainable fire in all conditions and with all the tools you carry is an essential for me. Plus it's fun.:D

    I wouldn't recommend it but it's handy to know how if you have to.
    Don't blame me if you break your folder!:eek:;)
