Knocked out two hand drill embers yesterday during practice
Two hand drill embers this afternoon
Today’s hand drill practice....filled up this board
Two hand drill embers.
One is seep willow on willow
The other is seep willow on sotol but using an old hole to catch the ember (eventually making the entire board a coal extender).
Ive not had luck at using another burnt out spot to collect a coal. Seems to smother it out everytime. I could see changing pressure and speed would help but im not there yet.
It can be tricky for sure. Faster speed, less pressure usually helps. Also if the old hole is pretty deep in the board.
Last couple days
Hand drill coal
Nice knife too!
Thanks! That’s a old Schrade back when they were still US made. Definitely a cool little slippy.
