    Florida lighter knot shavings for fire tinder. I used my LTWHK Lagom to shave with. I put the shavings in small zip loc baggies for my fire kits. It saves time in the scrub.;):dblthumb:

    I just received this Mountaineer from Deer Creek Forge. I broke it in by making a few shavings.

    Good stuff! I don't know why DCF isn't seen more on BCUSA. First class gear.

    When using my new knife (a scandi), I noticed that maple curled a lot easier for me than cedar. It was challenging to get the blade not to bite deep into the cedar. It was definitely slower going to keep the knife shallow.

    More practice needed :)

    Great observation. I hear a lot about how softer woods are better for curls, but that hasn't been my experience out here. At least cedar is so flammable that even mediocre curls will work! :)

    More practice, this time with a stationary knife.
    Definitely easier with a harder wood.
