Just a little video about making fire on wet ground using a ferro rod with the Sheffield knife. There’s a little cameo of cheap ass gear. The ferro rod was camera shy and I didn’t edit the trouble I had with it. I usually get a fire by the third strike.
“Do we have the capacity to make fire? Most humans have enjoyed that privilege since the Stone Age” Ripley, Alien3.
Fire lay for wet ground. Ferro rod got camera shy, but I didn’t edit it out. It’s not rocket science. Like that other guy says, practice the skill until you own it. But, never let them see you sweat.
Cameo with a bunch of cheap gear.

Just because it’s cheap doesn’t mean it’s crap.
I hope you enjoy that little vid, Later, Dragon Out.
