Just another tool that some may find useful.

Good thinking, very cool.
So, now if you were to carry 2 knives, you could scrape the Crashcarta scales with another, to have a pile of fire starting tinder.......Right?

Cool. I think the more you think the more ideas one can come up with. Bottom line I guess is get the fire going no matter how you do it. But its nice to have a tried and true way that one can depend on.

Brings forward more resources in a plane crash. Another use busted wings!

That's the first time I've seen this. Who'd a thunk? So.....If your snow machine breaks down in the boonies and you have no fire starting tinder just scrape some fiberglass off the engine cowling.

That's pretty cool, Crash. Nice job.

Cool idea. I wonder how the resin would work if wet?

So, scraping a section of a fiberglass canoe, someplace above the waterline, could work in a pinch.

Very, very flammable.

Might be a good idea to save some of the waste resin that over flows in a tin you would have a nice light resin puck to scrape.

Do you think, if you made some resin "pucks", they would remain flammable say 5 years down the line?
I think I have half a can left over from when I helped my cousin re-floor his boat.

I think the shaving would remain flammable, but it's not something I would plan for. In an emergency all bets are off, but the toxic nature of the fumes make it something I wouldn't purposely carry. Just nice to know that you may have some fire starting material with you that didn't first come to mind.

Ive got a set of homemade micarta scales that I botched for my BK2, I may have to try that.
