Practice makes perfect...if you do it daily...
Continuing the theme of survival in these perilous times. Here is how tae light a fire using a ferrorod and the back of a knife blade.
In this case a barbeque cos as we all know, barbecuing chicken wings is ESSENTIAL for survival. pic.twitter.com/5wxN87c4nN
Protip: trade the weight of that telescope in for a folding saw. Silkie is best of breed, but if you can't find or afford them, go with a Bahco Laplander. Also, make sure the knife hase a "90 degree spine" on the back of the blade, so you can use it with ferrorod firestarter.
Fire starting methods for the apocalypse.
Ash and friction
Ferrorod & knife

"If you buy only one piece of survival gear for the rest of the year, make it count." -Jack, a smart customer.
Wise words Jack. A ferro rod is a great place to start - whether you use it as a primary fire starter or simply as a backup. Make. It. Count.

A surprise gift from a friend, combination magnesium-block and ferro-rod. The handle is Pakua wood and can be scraped and used as "maya dust" and I added tape and fatwood as two more tinder sources that are renewable.
So far I am liking it, good quality materials throughout and this scraper/striker works incredibly well.
Today I carved a skull handle (memento mori) for a ferrorod.
I was inspired by another made by one the kings of #bushcraft : married2nature

I did a thing today. I made fire without a lighter for the first time! I used an @modernfirecraft Zunden Fatty ferrorod. The little titanium backpacker stove heats water quick. I was impressed. We had survival food… https://www.instagram.com/p/B-BEY_enYxh/?igshid=1k9621tvtslx5 …
