Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! So ,in all my Military and civilian life I have never been anywhere in the world where there wasn't various sizes of wood ,bark , and a mulititude of tinders with which to easily make a fire . Other than a wet situation where you need to get to the core of the wood to get to some dry stuff . I addition I don't get the fire stick thing ,dulling up a blade that you might need to process game for example. To me its all video marketing of knives . I'm sure ill get blasted here which I could care less . Thoughts ?
