    They will be for sure. I think the next step for the SET PSK is a primitive handle and sheath

    @VanGo a few suggestions for your journey.

    [​IMG]E0F0F502-0B3F-431D-B1FE-3C4B9C83273F by Brian Sargent, on Flickr

    I'd fuzz up the bark more and I'm sure you had more shavings somewhere.

    Think I'd use a longer bow.

    I'd use a bearing block that is more cylindrical, like antler with a deeper hole for control. Allows you to drag your fingers on the spindle. Easier to control it.

    I don't like the way the hearth looks. Looks knotty and twisted. I'm sure it's good but I'd make sure you are on a good spot.

    Spindle is on the fat side.

    Burn in a good divot fully on the board and then run a thin notch into it. No need to chamfer or back cut.

    Try a narrower notch to start, 1/3 way into into the burn. Maintains more surface area in the burn, maintains strength and cuddles the dust more. Concentrates it.

    If you take the sak and make one saw cut straight, 90 degrees into the burn ... then with the blade you take tiny shavings off the sides that relieve into the kerf. So you shave all the way to the end of the saw cut and the piece falls out. Makes it easy to control your width and not apply so much pressure to fragile materials.

    Damien taught me to catch coals with a piece of thick tooling leather the size of your palm. Works good for the flip and is a nice insulator.

    I'd gather as may different types of materials that you can and try different combos. Don't just sit on one that isn't working. Practice technique and material selection at the same time.

    Here are some visuals to help from a Mors Kochanski video from Karamat Wilderness Ways.

    Using leather is how I was taught as well. Mors is using birch bark.

    He also puts tinder, in this case I believe old man's beard directly under the board to catch the coal so there is no coal transfer to tinder. Then he adds more tinder on top of the coal and blows it into flame. I have not tried this way, but makes sense. Note the girth of the spindle.

    Sorry about the playback controls in the screenshots.

    I really hope posting these pics doesn't violate any copyright.

    @tobiism that setup is nice! Great work on the handle! I still haven't gotten around to making mine yet... I really want to. Did you buy a premade brass piece of did you make your own?

    Yeah it is the older m3c with the hidden lanyard tube I won in an auction from Brian 3-4 years ago. I just got it back recently.

    And yes they are polished :)

    You originally wanted a red knife but blood red is better.

    The hidden lanyard tube was a unique feature. Have you ever considered doing it again? @Sargent

    I hope he says yes, because I've never seen that on a SET and it's awesome.

    Tried some coyote hunting this morning without success, but it sure was nice to take the gun for a walk and be out with my dad.
