Hi guys and gals.Just to let you know. I have been selling a bit of bushcraft/survival kit on Trademe. I am trying out a few things related to bushcraft and selling kit was one of them. I am selling off my remaining stock so that I can try out some new things in bushcraft, most likely photography. I would like to sell the remaining items so that I can get my expenses back and purchase some camera equipment. For anyone who is interested and a member of this website I can offer you free shipping…See More

"You can also find fatwood in the crotch of a pine tree, from the research Dave Canterbury does, the more the angle of a forked off branch, the more likely it is to contain fatwood"
