There have been quite a number of ways for people to build fire today but in the past, this is an art that should be mastered. Technically speaking, there really is something that link men and building fire, which, considering how essential fire is in today’s time, should be learnt at all cost. Having the very idea on how to perform such skill may be counter fitting to how we live today but this skill is just something that you could use in various cases today. To really know this very skill is something that will help you throughout in whatever instance that require such.

So that you will be able to learn such art, then the aspects that we have should help you in mastering the art of making or starting survival fire. The possibilities of you being involved in a case where you will need this skill is definitely not far from being impossible, reason why you should opt to make sure that you will learn this before it is too late. Typically speaking, there are quite a number of ways and methods for one to do such task but of all these things, to have a board and spindle is by far the most important items that will definitely help you throughout.

The spindle really plays a major role in terms of starting a survival fire because of it being that this is what you will be using to create friction between it and the board itself or the fireboard in general. Having the right amount of friction between the two, you will then create an ember, given that you have achieved a specific temperature out of the friction. There are a number of fireboards and spindle sets that are ideal for such purpose and these things include walnut, aspen, willow, cottonwood, juniper, cedar, and cypress. Don’t forget to make sure that these are as dry as it could get since making your own fire will then be impossible should these are somewhat dry, especially in the insides.

Bow drill is among the most used way of fire making due to it being that this is straightforward and easier to use. Not to mention that this also is able to make fire faster than just using your hands. To maintain speed and pressure is one thing that you could get from bow drill. Bow drills require a socket and a bow for you to pull such task off accordingly.

The socket basically is what we will be using to counter the spindle just so you will create a well pressured force. The material could be made out of wood or stone but it should be harder than the spindle to make it easier.
