  1. Fist off…………Thank You for your service!
    Second, I like the way you think.
    Couple of things, being a Flint and steel guy you may or not know.
    The Cold Steel Shovel has just enough Rockwell
    To toss a spark with a rock ,7 or better on the MOH’s scale. Put the tip down on a stump and put out some char under it and it will catch.
    Also, the Bacho,and some axe tips from american makers will toss a good spark, my Gransfors and Wetterling are poor at this.
    Enjoyed the video, it was like hearing myself preach..
    Stay Safe.
