Pine Fatwood in The Wilds of Arkansas
Ken spots a Fatwood stump after walking just a few yards into the woods a short distance from his house.
Using a Cold Steel Tomahawk, Ken just pushed a bit of the punk out of the way.
The Zippo Test...
Hmm...what to do, what to do?
Shaving off a splinter.
Ken said this Fatwood was so loaded with resin that it glowed when a splinter was held up in bright light - you could almost see through it.
Two large splinters of Fatwood. Knife is a Cold Steel Trailmaster.
Ken the Pyromaniac returns...in theaters this summer. 8-)
Catches and spreads rather quickly, doesn't it? About five seconds after the picture above.
Finally, an alcohol stove that Ken Cook made out of a soda can. It works like a charm! He didn't invent them, but he sure makes a good one!
So, what does a home made alcohol stove made out of a soda can have to do with Pine Fatwood from Arkansas? FIRE!
