    This is stupid!!!.. It is just like you have matches cause you just get a substitute for it.. getting margarine instead of butter….. What if i don’t have steel and magnesium? Watch videos made by scouts in the Philippines. They really suits for survival. Nothing amazing from this video..

    He is doing this in ideal conditions…would love to see someone do this with wet wood. What if you don’t have lint from your dryer or cotton?

    What if you don’t have your handy dandy steel and flint?

    Notice he didn’t even make a fire with the bowdrill.

  7. yes but when using the fire starter use the back of the knife, it works just as well and protects the blade

  8. Then you are fucked.
