Split bamboo

Got the culm halves split and was just able to get enough tip strips for two tips for each rod. As I go through the process of making the rods I hope it stays that way... You just never know with bamboo. I do have a couple of spare strips from another culm that I will be processing along side these just in case. Here is a photo of the culms being split and the tools I prefer to use. I'll need to mark the node spacing next and then cut the strips to length. In the photo of the split strips... Ends marked black are for the butt sections and red is for tips
