Hand Drill Firemaking Beginner’s Step by Step Guide

We all know how important the ability of making a fire if you are ever stuck off grid and away from civilization.Some of us carry lighters, safety matches or even the ever stryke matches.

As you build up your skills, you can try materials that are right from nature (for this video I used materials that I gathered that day and did not pre-dry in any way).
