The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
There is alot of man made fire starters out there, some good and some not so good. One of the most important things to know when trying to start a fire, is know what makes the best fire tender in your neck of the woods. Just my idea, from an old Cajun camper.
My kids make it better than me using two sticks and some dry grass or cedar needles. Sometimes will strike rocks to get the spark that starts the fire. Kindling is usually near by to layer one after another.
Me I use a lighter lol
I made 3 fires today 2 with my bow drill and 1 with a fire steel. still working on the hand drill.
