Firestarter that last for years

The ability to construct, start and maintain a safe campfire is an important wilderness survival skill. A good advice is that you practice and learn different metods so you can start a fire anywhere under any conditions.

The obvious first choice is to use matches, see the webpage Develop your campfire starting skills . But one of the additional methods you should be able to use as wilderness traveler is to start a fire with sparks from some form of tool.

You have probably heard of an old starting method called flint & steel. The modern version of this is what we can call an artificial flint striker. Visit the newly created webpage Firestarter Firesteel and learn how to use a flint striker called the Swedish FireSteel.

Good luck!
