This morning before bed (I work third shift..) I was watching this youtube video where some guy made a knife for cutting vegetables out of slate. He showed it can cut wood as well, but pointed out that it would get dull real quick. I happen to have a big piece of slate so, think today I'll try making one since the weather isn't all that great and all.

Also see some guy post on the pathfinder forum a fire piston he made out of wood. I've wanted one of those for months now since I first found out about them, but they're just a tad too expensive for me to buy and every tutorial on making them wanted metal tubing and whatnot. I'm more into the primitive thing, so I don't really want to make a metal one. Started yesterday carving one out, hoping I can finish it by the end of the week. Slowly working on it and very carefully so I don't screw it up, want my first one to work the first time I try it!

I'll post a couple pics of my progress on both later today.

Right... Slate knife is a no go, not really sure how to start that or how to get the slate to break off in the right shape chunk I need it to. Other than that, the fire piston is starting to take shape and coming out decent looking.

Just pray to god this thing works! Never made one before so, really interested in seeing how well or not I've done on it..
