Wife and I decided to take the boys out for some outdoor time and show them how to harvest some fatwood. I had to put the new bk4 to use that the Warrior sent me! On our way in to some private land that borders National Forest. It was a beautiful day to be outside! On our way in The oldest boy didn't need any help, so I had to stand back! Here is the fatwood stump we are about to tap in to Bk4 strapped to my pack 2 of my fatwood harvesting tools Making the first cut with the Sven I like the downward angle of the handle for batoning Fatwood looks dead on the outside But fresh, fragrant and sticky on the inside Random knife shots Feathering some fatwood curls for fire Good sticky icky stuff Cam trying out the Sven for the first time And learning to baton for the first time He was having a hard time with the sticky blade Behold an ants nest right in the middle Can the 1311 cut through 1.5" sapling in one swipe? It sure can! Coop is loving the bk4 and wants it for his own. Thanks again Bmurray for the backpacks! The boys and their new walking sticks Not much of a war face! But they sure can stick fight The mighty mighty bk4 And our final haul of fatwood we will be sending out to various forum members! Warrior, I have a primo center cut chunk with your name on it! Finally, some water in our creeks after a long drought Cam with about 30lbs of fatwood in that pack Having fun at base camp My wife MarriedTheMedic picking up sticks for the Emberlit More chopping with the bk4 More batoning with the bk4 Whittling more curls for the cooking fire Almost ready Jute twine Ready to strike And we have fire Roasting our weenies over the fire! From our family to yours, happy Sunday to all!
