scandi blades

i currently am using a leuku scandi blade,over the years i have found one fault with this style of blade and that is the lack of a raised bevel makes it difficuilt to split larger logs when battoning,the lack of a significant raised bevel doesnt force the wood apart instead it acts like a cheese wire,only cutting not splaying....
i am going to try this out with a machete to see how it performs.

dakota fire pit

tried out the dakota fire pit method today,it burned well although there was still some smoke from the damp wood,i think it would work better in a larger pit,and bigger air hole..it consumed pine wood very quickly..
