    Woolly Rope Fraying

    So I bought a polyester rope (I think), which has a twisted 7-strand woolly core covered by a hair-like weaving.
    The problem I'm facing with it is that, when cut, the rope frays a lot.

    Buying a Whetstone

    So I'll be buying a whetstone, but I've never bought one before.
    I've been browsing some stores and I noticed that many of them are quite small -- 2.5 cm in width.

    Ah, after a week, it has gone back to its meandering state. I think I should just go ahead and buy some new cords.

    Straightening Mangled Cords

    I got some plastic cord (which I assume is polypropylene) that has been badly stored that when unravelled it tries to bend back to its mangled state.

    I want to practise knots but it's really...

    Thanks for the input.

    I'm sure the wood was dry.
    The firesteel is something I picked up online. It works quite well, though the striker is nonsense -- it is thin and doesn't scrap off a good...

    Feather Stick Problems

    I watched the Natural Bushcraft video for feather sticks and thought it was easy at first.
    So I was practising making feather sticks yesterday and I have to admit I sucked at it.

    Any advise on how to maintain and clean it? Most of the time, if it gets wet, I just drain it and wipe it dry.

    I live in Malaysia, which is in South East Asia, so I probably doubt that.

    I was wondering if it is possible to navigate and orientate without a map but just a compass. Has anyone tried?

    I've browsed some shops for tarps; some of the tarps seem substandard and others have prices that made me choke.

    If I'm going for a cheap tarp, what should I be looking for?

    I have never tried a jungle hammock before -- it sounds like something I should add to my repertoire.

    Another thing: what do you guys think of those 'quick set-up' or 'automatic folding' tents?

    I broke my compass when I dropped it; it also broke my heart because I'm broke and can't get a new one anytime soon.
