Title: Firesteel Demonstration
Post by: Buckskin on January 07, 2013, 01:33:36 PM
I decided to shoot a quick video displaying the sparking of the ferro rods I use. 

Comments welcome here and on YouTube.

Enjoy

That's awesome BucK! Works as good as the one I have that looks almost like it. Remember? The green river is a fantastic tool too. Thanks for the demo.

I think those Russell GR knives deserve a lot more 'press' than they're getting on these forums.  My old carbon Dadley pattern knife is the first I ever assembled and is still a favorite after all these years, as an all around woods knife :thumbsup:

Thanks guys.  I was having a bit of trouble with the wind today.  That is why I kept holding the tinder by some means.

Wolfy, I agree with you about the Russel.  You get a lot of knife for the money.  Its a bit more than a Mora but, I think it is a better knife too.

AND they are enjoyable to put handles on. :)

I have a small GRK butcher I use for all my, well, butchering!

Thanks for the demo. I know what to expect now from your spark rod. Pairs up nicely with the custom hickory handled laminated Mora. Haven't had the heart to use it yet but I'll get over that pretty quick. :)

Looks like my GR Russell blank but that one has grips on it. ;D

Looks like a fine sparky rod you are using.
