I have been a long time reader of Horace Kephart and I always thought his knife was pretty neat yet really simple. My bud Shiney picked one up a few months ago and I really liked it. So after much begging, pleading and drooling he finally decided to do some horse trading with me.
It did not come with a sheath, so I copied JRE's ever popular pattern and made my own.
Fast forward a few days and I'm reading American Bushman's Blog and he wrote an entry on fireside hot chocolate and mentioned Canteenshop.com. So I couldn't help myself and picked up a canteen, mug and burner. It came in today and I just had to try it out. Started a little fire and boiled up a cup of pine needle tea with my daughter.
You have to set the cup on the burner sideways with a wood fire. The cup will sit down just a little inside the burner and be solid, but it will put the flame out.
There is a cut out in the side that is to allow the burner to slide up the cup and miss the handle attachment plate. It also serves as a place to slip in fuel.
I'm going to try using his as my day bag water/cooking system.
God Bless Yall!
