Making A Celt Stone Axe From Scratch (including handle)

Making A Celt Stone Axe From Scratch (including handle)

Published on May 22, 2015

The manufacture of a stone ax including the handle from using only primitive tools and materials. It is a celt (pronounced “selt”) a type of ax with a polished stone head wedged into a hole or mortise at the end of a wooden handle (not to be confused with a “Kelt” referring to a Celtic person). The head took about a week and a day to make as I chose to make it from a particularly large piece of basalt. The hammer stone used to shape the basalt was of quartz. This involved hammering, pecking, grinding and polishing the head into the final shape. The handle took a day and a morning to make. A chisel was made from stone and a mallet made from a log. These were used to cut the tree for the handle and shape it once down. Fire was used to harden the wood and also to help shape the mortise. The ax was then used to cut down a tree the day after the handle was a tree itself. It is a more efficient tool for felling trees than the hand ax I made and at the time of uploading this video has cut down 4 trees which I will use later. Because this stone axe is blunter than a steel one, the blade needs to hit the tree at angles greater than 45 degrees- otherwise the blade would glance off. So celts were used more like wedges than modern axes.

How To Make Charcoal

How to make charcoal

Published on Feb 19, 2016

I made a batch of charcoal using the mound method then stored it in baskets for later use. Charcoal is a fuel that burns hotter than the wood it’s made from. This is because the initial energy consuming steps of combustion have taken place while making the charcoal driving off the volatile components of the wood (such as water and sap). The result is a nearly pure carbon fuel that burns hotter than wood without smoke and with less flame. Charcoal was primarily a metallurgical fuel in ancient times but was sometimes used for cooking too.

To make the charcoal the wood was broken up and stacked in to a mound with the largest pieces in the center and smaller sticks and leaves on the out side. The mound was coated in mud and a hole was left in the top while 8 smaller air holes were made around the base of the mound. A fire was kindled in the top of the mound using hot coals from the fire and the burning process began (the hot coals are being poured in the top using a small pot at 2:38).

The fire burned down the inside of the mound against the updraft. I reason that this is a better way to make charcoal as the rising flames have used up the oxygen and prevent the charcoal already made above them from burning while driving out even more volatiles .

I watched the air holes at the base of the mound and when the fire had burned right up to each opening I plugged them with mud. Once all 8 holes had be sealed the hole in the top of the mound was sealed with mud and the mound left to cool. From lighting the mound to closing up the holes the whole process took about 4 hours.

The next day when the mound was cool to the touch (this can take about 2 days sometimes) I opened the mound. The resulting charcoal was good quality. Some wood near the air entries had burned to ash though these were only small twigs and leaves. This is the reason small brush is put on the out side of the mound, to be burned preferentially to the larger wood on the inside thus protecting the large pieces of charcoal.

The charcoal that was made was hard and shiny. When broken open it had the ray structure of the wood preserved. When moving the hand through it the charcoal sounded tinny, like coral on a beach being moved by waves. These are signs of good quality. Bad charcoal is soft, breaks easily and has a muffled sound.

I intend to use the charcoal to produce hotter fires than I’m able to with wood alone. From my research, a natural draft furnace using wood (a kiln) can reach a maximum of 1400 c degrees whereas a natural draft furnace using charcoal can reach 1600 c degrees. Achieving high temperatures is necessary for changing material to obtain better technology (e.g. smelting ore into metal).

Mini Cree Flashlight: A great light for an even better price

Gear Rating: 10

Price: $3

Bug Out Recommended: Yes

Pros:

The price
The battery life
Solid construction
The ability to focus your light from a large to small spread with the use of one hand

 

Cons:

Nope!

 

Final Thoughts:

This is the perfect edc flashlight to own. Its only a few bucks, clips onto your pocket, and has a one hand light adjust to focus your light on specific object. At this price I buy 4-5 and put them in all my bags and vehicles. Sure, it’s not super cool and it probably can’t be ran over by a plane or fire truck and still work like other “survival” flashlights. But who cares? It’s only $3.00!  Basically if you don’t buy one then it’s your loss! Fantastic product for an incredible price!  No need to be a cheap ass here!

Berkey Water Filter

Berkey Water Filter

Gear Rating: 10

Price: $258

Bug Out Recommended: Yes

Pros:

This is a bad boy filter perfect for a bug out location or your home for everyday use.  Once the filters are primed it produces extremely fresh tasting water.  Since putting it on my counter my family have all become believers, we won’t even touch tap water anymore.  The filters in this set up are supposed to last you a few years and can filter basic chemicals and dirt all the way to taking out arsenic and harmful bacteria.  The list is long and extensive and can be found on their site.  Their claim to fame is that they can turn any water source into a drinkable water source.  The item actually folds into it’s self making it a little smaller for storage in your pantry if needed.

Bonus, this set up actually looks nice on your counter and for those that have no idea, it looks like a fancy Brita style  filter, little do they know its a survival source for fresh drinking water!

Cons:

It takes a while to prime the filters to the point of getting sweet clean drinking water.  The process is not hard but it took me a week and a half until the water lost that mineral taste you find from a new filter.  The water filter is really slow, so for everyday use, it takes a while to get your system down to ensure you always have water ready to go.  I fill it in the morning and again at night and my family of 5 is good to go.  In a survival situation it would be well worth the wait!

Don’t get the plastic blue model, I checked it out in person and the two units just sit on top of one another.  The filter compartment rests on the top and can get knocked over easily, which sucks if its full of water.  Get the silver metal ones, as the filter unit actually rests in the water catchment portion.

Final Thoughts:

The filter works slowly so don’t be cheap like me and get the 2 filter system, spend a few extra bucks and get the one with four filters it is totally worth it.  This system is a bit bulky so it is not travel ready, but it’s great for your home or bug out location.  I have taken it camping a few times and it worked perfectly!  You will not regret this purchase!
