    Been building a fire almost daily at the lean to and used up my supply of birch bark. Ventured out this morning with my Bushcraft Black to replenish my supply. It did a fantastic job of peeling the entire log I found. Harvested almost a bushel and a half in less than an hour. All set for a couple of months!

    A man can't have too much birch bark.
