    Thank you Sir , I'm kinda proud of this one for some reason . I've hung my fair share but this one just feels right in hand and during my limited use so far . Man this little thing hits hard in such a compact package . Compact IMHO atleast .

    It looks to be quite a capable tool, and probably very useful in your AO.

    Someone was asking about using branches instead of split wood for curls and feathersticks, so I made this one out of a willow branch for encouragement.

    Nice NWP! You carve them all spectacular no mater what knife you use. I bet you could do it with a butter knife! :4:
    I'm looking to get an Izula-II to pair up with the Junglas soon. How confortable is it in the hand?

    Thanks @City Bushcrafter . As long as I could sharpen the butter knife, I'm sure it would make curls. I do like the little Izula though and the handle fits me just fine, but I have odd hands with large palms and short fingers; so my take on what is comfortable might be different than yours. It is a fun and handy little knife, so if it fits you, you'll probably like it a lot.

    Thanks @NWPrimate. I have large palms and long fingers (XL size glove). I'll give it a try and see how it goes!

    @NWPrimate I don't know how you get curls like that??? I have given up on even trying. Lots of other dry stuff here to get a fire going.

    Awesome job! Just got 3 cortisone shots in my hands and it is not working. Thats why I gave up trying to do this.

    Sorry to hear about your hands @tomme boy. I've gotten cortisone shots on both feet for bone spurs so I know how you feel! All the road marches in the ARMY with heavy packs when I was young and the thousands of miles of hiking on the AT finally caught up to me.

    @City Bushcrafter I have those too. Plantar Fasciitis in both feet. The last shots were almost a year ago in the feet. Them worked but are starting to come back.

    @tomme boy, plantar fasciitis every morning here too. Stretching before I get out of bed and during the day helps. I refuse to sleep with the funny looking boots!

    This is an Olson OK knife that I got from my Grandfather's fishing shack when he unexpectedly passed away 2 years ago. It's been sitting in a drawer since I got it. The blade was bent, the metal was tarnished, and the blade was scratched. Last night, I clamped it in my bench vise and straightened the blade. Then, I sanded the bevels and flats with fine wet/dry sandpaper and lightly polished the blade, guard and pommel with some compound. I sharpened it up and used it a bit this morning. Makes nice curls on yellow birch! I'll have to take this as a main knife on one of my future outings.

    More practice of the bench tool method with an Izula. Mainly working on muscle memory and keeping the curls on the stick. Two different species of maple.

    I gave the NWP easy (but hard) way another try on 1x2 furring strips. Horrible wood to split and featherstick due to all the knots in it. I need to find another source of soft wood here in the concrete jungle. Any ideas?

    :dblthumb: That looks great from here @City Bushcrafter , especially for using knotty wood. Picking the right pieces to use is half the battle.

    Sounds like a new thread: "odd objects you've dared @NWPrimate to make curls with"

    ETA: a garden hoe sounds fairly straight forward, now that I think about it...

    Thanks @NWPrimate. As if my fatwood already didn't have an inferiority complex when I saw yours now my shavings won't come out of their room because they feel inadequate. I hope youre pleased with yourself.

    All kidding aside beautiful work!!! Something to aspire to. Thanks!! :dblthumb:

    By the power invested in me by my own ego i declare due to obsessive showing off (NWP) and making a certain individual feel inadequate (me) I hereby ban said show off from possessing any tools capable of making curls in any way shape or form from posting anything pertaining to this method of fire starting from this day forward .

    It's just practice guys. I'm still working on another post to help give you some shortcuts, but if you keep playing with it, you'll figure out the same things that I did. I know you're just having fun, but I do hope that these pictures are more motivating than discouraging.

    I'm getting motivated to add the "shavings with a sharpened butter knife" challenge to my "Entertaining Bushcraft Skills" to-do list. A good combination of both edged tool sharpening and curls practice right there!

    I switched knives and I am now getting pretty good feathers. Only took 12 different knives to find one that I can work with. I don't have a lot of flexibility or dexterity in my hands or wrist anymore and I have to work around that. But I think I will be getting a pic in a few more days.
