This is a 1/2 ” x 6″ long ferrocerium rod mounted in a piece of aluminum conduit. The conduit guides the sparks to the bottom of the tube so more sparks go where you want them to. I call it my “Ferrocerium Cannon”.
Saw for processing wood. I prefer a fixed blade pruning saw. This is one of the kind that commercial arborists use. It will saw a 10″ diameter log. It is a Japanese style saw that cuts on the pull stroke
Stamped “Vaughan Value Brand” Double Bit Cruiser Axe.
Cruiser: one who estimates the potential lumber yield from the standing timber on a specific tract of land and may mark out routes for accessing the area. (also: estimator)
Cruiser’s axe: a small version of a double bit axe designed to make markings by slashing the bark such as when blazing. (also: timber cruiser’s axe)
My wife found this beauty at a yard sale and brought it home for me.
It weighs 4 lbs. on the nose; with a new 22″ long handle which has been shortened from standard length. I swing this one handed like a hatchet or tomahawk. One edge is a slim profile for chopping the other is blunt for splitting.
I will drive one bit into a fallen log and baton wood into it to split it.
Handmade Triangular Awl-Drill made from an old Nicholson triangular file. Just like the knife I tempered the file at 400 deg. F for two hours x 2 times. It has three sharp edges that drill into even hardwood easily. Much better than trying to drill a hole with a knife.
I made this from a Nicholson file that I used for over forty years to sharpen my outdoor tools. I put on cherry handles and preserved them with Tung oil which I use on all my wood handle outdoor tools. By the way the knife is stuck into some loblolly pine fatwood from the eastern shore of Maryland. This is a working knife so the finish isn’t super shiny.

“When you say something like [I Love You]… with your whole being, not just with your mouth or your intellect, it can transform the world”. Thich Nhat Hanh
I have a cat named “Lil Kitty” who has taught me great lessons. I call her a high “needs” kitty; because when I sit down in the house, at the computer or on the toilet, she is right there to be petted and scratched.
This “need” is really her way of saying “I need you to say something like [I Love You]… with your whole being”. When I am present and give her attention she purrs and half closes her eyes in a state of bliss. When I am not present she will first rub up against me; if I continue to ignore her she will eventually stand up on her hind legs and slowly sink her front claws into my thigh.
Why is it so easy to say something like [I Love You]… with your whole being to an animal rather than a human being?
Well, human beings collect “alleged” offences from other humans and then view these same humans from the “gunnysack” of offences.
Animals don’t collect “alleged” offences from humans and then view these same humans from the “gunnysack” of offences.
A cat is very good at living in the present moment. If you don’t catch a cat at the exact moment of doing something you don’t want it to do; you cannot reprimand it. It will just look at you in an aloof fashion like saying “I would never do that”.
Our pets have an instinct that I call a “forget-ory”. Yell at your pet and they might cringe away for a short while; but they will be right back shortly.
Humans could use a “forget-ory”.
Our pets are world champions at being optimists. On their first approach to you when you get home they will expect only the good and best from you.
We should be more like our pets; find a human and say something like [I Love You]… with your whole being it will transform your world.
