Recognized your knife in Backwoodsman today, and sure enough, when I checked, it was your article. You get around, my friend!

Hi Gorges. I used to write for Charlie many years ago, several other magazines too.
Regards, Keith.

Keith, thank you for this clarification on punk wood. I had tried to char what I thought was punk but then could not get it to catch a spark. I now understand why...it was only partly rotted and not really punk. Now I shall go on a search for real punk wood to char. Thanks again for this series.

You are most welcome Mountain Lady, glad it helped.
Regards, Keith.

Good day..
Always a pleasure to watch your videos on survival Keith, so next time I go camping I will certainly know what I am looking for.
Thank you.
Bron.

I have a photo of a fungal I found on a large gum tree well over 50yrs old, I will post on profile if I can find it.
