cattails and firesteel

Postby owlbait » Mon Apr 04, 2016 4:37 pm

Took a walk with my grandson last week and found some cattails. Showed him the fluff inside and told him I thought it would make great tinder for a spark fire starter. I got a firesteel and striker from Chuck Deshler at two Tracks Bows today and headed back to the cattails. The second strike set that cattail fluff to blazing! Going to carry it in my pack this year for tinder and wind indicators. The firesteel has a beautiful burl handle on it too. :)
