How this video is different and designed to teach you fire making:
This video features a unique step-by-step approach which demonstrates each of these techniques in 3 stages so that you can reproduce the results. The Flint & Steel, Bow Drill and Hand Drill fire making methods are each taught in 3 stages.
The 3 stages are:
- First at home using modern tools (to help you quickly succeed and gain confidence)
- Second using only a knife and whatever you can find (this is likely the type of situation you would be in if you ever really needed to make fire without matches)…..
- Finally, the truly primitive way, using no modern tools or materials of any kind.
