nonModern fire.

I read about a home modified knife which talked about a firepiston in the survival kit. in reading about old ways of making fire here, i learned about the fire piston.

i see this piston as having many inturesting properties. many being it's simplisic and roboust design, not to be outdone by the fact it actually makes fire.
i smell a new project coming on.

I very much enjoyed the links about both the interesting knife (made out of a leaf spring)and the methods for producing fire. I'd heard of most of them, and had thought about making a lens out of ice, but the water in a baggy, or seran wrap was truly novel and worthy of further investigation. the shined soda can bottom was quite good as well.
