Starting a fire can sometimes be a challenge. Here I will show you two ways to start a fire without matches. The first will light the dampest tinder, and is pretty much foolproof, but is not very portable. The second takes a little bit of practice, but you can bring it with you anywhere.
This post is a video, which is more fun when fire is involved. Note: you may want to take out off your headphones for the intro… Links to the stuff in the video are below.
Amazon Links to the things in the video:
If you want your own Morakniv “Light My Fire” like I use in the video, you can find them on Amazon for $30. It’s a great knife for the money and if you need JUST a knife without the Swedish Steel (firestarter) they make other models. I bought mine from someone at the Firefly Gathering for about $25, so keep your eyes open if you go to those kinds of things. I think they have a subversive network of dealers that go to these types of meet-ups 😉
The Emberlit Stainless model can be found on Amazon, here, for about $40. That’s as low as I’ve seen them, so buy it there if you want one.
I’ll also mention that I carry one of these peanut lighters with me everywhere. It’s on my keychain and my primary means of starting a fire. Plus, you can light somebody’s cigarette. You don’t want to try that with the Morakniv…
May you always find good weather and a warm fire!
