Prep work is the bulk of the friction fire process for sure...Excellent article
Why the new site Mr. Canterbury
Just wanted a place to Archive some of my teachings that can be found easily later as they get buried on social media format.
It's funny because if I was building a friction fire I would spend a ton of time making a good tinder bundle but recently I received my first flint and steel kit, and when I want to use it. I guess I just didn't think about the bundle being so important because the ember comes so much easier than with a friction fire. Needless to say I burned through 4or5 big chucks of char cloth before lighting the fire with my Ferro Rod. haha. I learned the bundle is just as important with a flint and steel fire as it is with a friction fire.
