It also seems like the position of the body being upright and sawing up and down vs. being on the ground and sawing side to side with seems better to me. I will certainly try this out sometime and test it for myself.
Thanks for the idea.
In the conventional position, one does not rely solely on arm strength and endurance to maintain proper pressure. But if you get a coal that fast, it probably does not matter.

I just used the tree bark as a hearth!
I'm gonna have to give this a shot. As previously mentioned it may prove advantageous when the ground is wet...or covered in snow.
Nevertheless looks like fun.
My knees are no strong so I think I´ll give atry to this technique, very clever ;-)
