    So as some of you know, my Becker Necker is my go to Bush knife and he has been feeling left behind a little. So today I put some love on him. We went to my favorite haunt and scared up some Pine sap and some Red Cedar bark startimy my prep for 5 natural tinders for bush class. I don't have a dull edge to my Necker any more. the edges are ground down to accomodate scraping and such. The Cedar waqs very fresh having just harvested it this morning and i got some nice fine tinder and a fine powder as well which I use for my burning glass fires. All in a mornings Bush crafting. LOTS of fun. Todd

    That's a great knife Todd. I've got one in my truck as well as the Eskabar well made solid kit. Pine Sap and Red Ceder along with fat wood are some of my favorite tenders.
