ok so i am getting frustrated. i jsut spent 20 min making nice thin pig tail like curls of wood. very thin. tot he point where is would almost roll up on top of itslef and be like a cylinder. now i took my sak and enzo and took them to my ferro rod. and this was a decent size pile of shavings. but i couldnt for the life of me get it to catch. i try to use jsut wood like i would if i was out camping. so any suggestions on how i can get my fire going better? it is jsut bugging me. i was thinking dead pine needles underneath but i thought such thin shavings should be good enough. guess i was wrong and am i the only one who cant get a spark from 1095? my shiv and mora and old timer wont send a spark off the spine if their lives depended on it.
