"Fire is one of humanities oldest friends. It can cook our food, purify our water, warm our shelters, and light the darkness. Knowing how to create fire from scratch with nothing but the landscape and a knife is an amazing skill that everyone can learn. With over two and a half hours of instruction spread out between 24 videos, you will learn to build conical fire, carve a bow drill kit and understand how to use it, as well as learn how to troubleshoot the various pitfalls beginners can make.
