How to Start a Fire with Flint



A Tried and True Fire Starting Method

We’ve shared a lot of fire starting tips on our site. We’ve shown you how to start a fire with char cloth, a 9V battery and even a water bottle.

While these unorthodox firestarting methods are very effective, sometimes it’s nice to get back to basics.
