This week I try my hand (once again) at learning to make fire the old fashioned way - fire by friction. I previously failed at getting an ember going with the hand drill technique. In this revisit I try using different kinds of woods and work on my technique more to see if that makes a difference.

  • I know away to start a fire that worked for me and all you need is two rocks and dry grass you bang the rocks together so you make sparks then put it on the dry grass and if you wanted to make a big fire you would put in wood

  • heres a tip: go for speed, not strength when spinning it. If you press down too hard, it gives your hand tons of blisters. Also, try to have a stick with as much contact with the wood as possible, to maximize friction between the two sticks

  • The materials are key doing it this way. If one's truly interested, dave reallybigmonkey has an excellent material selection vid on this technique. Best I've seen anyway. Granted, your region may not contain the same species but seeing what he prefers definitely guides you to choosing a proper regional substitute.
