In this episode of Learn Quick, I learn to make fire by friction. That is by rubbing sticks together. I try the fire plough, hand drill and fire bow techniques.

  • The rubbing is a better technique because when you do the hand drill you let the ash get cold while you move your hand to the top

  • Pro tip: If you make a fire during summer, make it at the beach, a minimum 5 meters away from trees so they wont catch on fire. You can also use the water at the beach to extinguish the fire

  • ok now try it without a knife and shoes. because fact is if you're in that situation in the first place you won't have a knife. You probably will have shoes but what if you didn't? if you're going to make a fire primitive style then do it properly. Test you overall survival skills by not only having to make a fire with no tools but make a shelter and get food too. I don't care what you use to make the shelter or food as long as its found and or made by you with the resources you gather yourself and are primitive(so no trash you find like bottles or plastic bags.)
