For When Matches Just Won’t Cut It
Matches may be the “old-school” way of starting a fire and the preferred method of many traditionalists, but the fact of the matter is that they’re often unreliable.
If the wind is blowing, matches are hard to light and keep lit. And if they somehow get wet? Forget about it. You’re better off rubbing two sticks together for all the good it will do you.
That’s why it’s always best to have a few matchless firestarting techniques in your back pocket. Sure, you should keep a matchbook on you as well. Think of this as a backup plan if your matches aren’t cutting it.
The video below will show you how to make a matchless firestarting kit, perfect for any survival situation. Check it out, and be sure to share your own tips with fellow readers in the comments!
