Fire with an Opinel.  There were enough good lessons in this old YouTube video that I thought it might be useful to highlight some of them here.  While a good fixed blade knife makes life easier in the woods, it is fun and useful to practice with less than ideal tools; especially one that you might likely carrying anyway.

These little Opinel knives are great cutters, but they aren’t the world’s most durable design, so using a knife like this forces you to work smarter.  Rather than trying to tackle a large piece of wood, I did my best to match the material to the tool and picked out some soft big leaf maple suckers.

Suckers or nascent growth are new shoots that often pop up when a tree falls or is damaged.  They tend to be softer than the wood from the trunk or normal branches, and are easy to process; making them ideal candidates for friction fire in dry weather.

One issue with using suckers is that they usually have a hollow pithy core.  This is great for hand drill, but can be an issue when using a bow drill and bearing block.  I like to bring the top of my spindle to a thin point to cut down on friction, but this isn’t possible with the hollow center.  One good solution shown here is to make a small tip and insert it into the top of the spindle.  I made this one from vine maple and reinforced it with a strip of bark. 
I didn’t back it well enough and it broke out while I was trying to get the spindle moving, but it was an easy repair and this technique has worked well for me before and since.

The set performed well, but my next issue came from another property of the suckers.  They don’t tend to be a great choice for fine curls, and I rushed them, meaning I was left with feather sticks that weren’t up to tinder bundle standards.  The timely application of punk wood to the struggling ember as a coal extender is what made the difference between success and failure.  I should have added it before even putting the ember in the bundle, but was hoping I could make it work without.

Filmed October 2017: Longer version on YouTube under “Maple Sucker Bow Drill with Root Cordage: Punkwood Saves the Day”.

Tried a new friction fire method tonight. The fire roll. Unroll a cotton ball, take half and lay it on a flat surface. I use two prices of 1x4. Add some wood ash. Then apply pressure with your hand first and roll it tight. Then place another 1x4 on top and "rub" the crap out of it. Produced a thick ember. First for me! #firestarters #fireskills #fire #primitivefire #fireroll #improvise #firebyfriction #bushcraft #woodcraft #skillspractice #trysomethingdifferent #try #simplefire #firebug #cottonball #woodash #bcusa #bushcraftusa

Avcı grubundan kaçan 1 domuz sürüsü ile karşılaştım.Islık çalarak onları ikinci gruptan farklı bir yere yönlendirdim. Ayrıca  bölgeden uzaklaşan bir ayı gördüm.Ayı benden çok uzakta ağaçlık bir alandaydı. O yüzden ara ara ıslık çalarak yaban hayvanlarına yerimi belli etmeye çalışıyordum.Gerçi onlar benim varlığımın çoktan farkındadırlar.

Fire with sparks from the spine of the Laser Strike from @eseeknives and a piece of quartz.  There is a big difference between using a dedicated hardened striker and a tool that you happen to be carrying.  For me, the real value in practicing flint and steel (percussion fire) is in the fact that the tools we are already carrying can serve double-duty as emergency sources of ignition.

However, this isn’t quite as simple as it may sound.  Of course you need charred or otherwise suitable material to take a flint and steel spark in the first place, but this can be accomplished by making your first fire by friction and using that fire to make char; which should make the next fire easier.

Flint and steel is easy with a dedicated striker, sharp piece of chert, char cloth, and a hardened striker.  Swap any of those out and it gets more difficult.  Tools usually aren’t as hard and don’t throw the same volume or intensity of sparks.  Quartz doesn’t hold an edge like flint or chert, and natural char can’t always be held on the stone.  This can turn an easy task into an advanced exercise in frustration. 
There is nothing wrong with carrying and using a dedicated striker though.  For practice or enjoyment, it is safer, more effective, and saves wear and tear on your tools.  A steel striker in an emergency kit would probably be better replaced with a backup ferro rod, but as a training tool it is excellent.  For those of you that don’t know, a piece of an old file will work as well as most commercially produced strikers, so that can be a great place to start.

Folding saws and knives are the safest way to start when you want to begin practicing with real world objects because you can often use them closed.  Using a fixed blade knife is much more dangerous and extreme care must be taken.  There are multiple ways to get sparks from a knife, including swinging the knife, but you have to be careful no matter which method you practice.

In this first clip I used a poor piece of quartz with the @eseeknives Laser Strike and took lots of striking and a little piece of skin to get the charred punkwood to catch.

I read in multiple sources, that the branches of arctic bell heather (cassiope tetragona) have been used as fuel for small fires by the Sámi and Inuit. Its a small shrub, that grows circumpolar on lime richsoils and forms large mats. I picked several stalks in october to take them home. They burn really well and could be used as emergency fuel for cooking in the tundra.

There’s nothing more of an accomplishment than creating a fire with primitive tools and naturally gathered tinder only to use those flames to brew a strong black coffee and take time to reflect. I personally don’t suffer with mental health problems and I believe this is due to me spending a lot of time outdoors. It’s easy for me to say get outdoors but I believe this is a natural healer and a mood stablizer. So many people suffer, boxed in mentally and boxed in between four walls. I created a video to help get the #showmeyoursteak go viral. 2 people couldn’t make there video so I’ll tag another two to go out and cook a steak, link to mental health help in you country and tag 3 people to do the same. So @linuszetterlund and @psychocki show us your steak. #getoutside #getoutdoors #primitivefire #bushcraftuk #mind #unboxyourself #bushcraft #forest #outdoors #mensmentalhealthawareness #mensmentalhealth #itsoknottobeok #friluftsliv #showmeyoursteak

Oh I miss that hat! This is an old photo of me, on the left, helping a student make his first ever friction fire. I’m sheltering the ember while he recovers, out of breath and fashions a tinder nest. Magic moment and a great achievement on a wet, winter day. #bowdrillfire #bushcraft #frictionfire #firemaking #fivesensesactivities #barefoot #paramo #firemakingskills #makingfire #firebyfriction #bowdrill #bushcraftfire #themagicoffire #whatidobest #earthshare #forres #fireworkshop #primitiveskills #primitivetechnology #primitivefire #firelighting

Another successful fire challenge at Pathfinders this evening! @trianglelandconservancy #learningoutside #fire #primitivefire
Making tea on a one-stick fire.  This made for a cool picture, but it wasn’t what I had originally set out to accomplish this day.  I had been playing around with making my bow drill hearth directly into downed logs and had success twice in a row before deciding to film it.  However, this time the log I chose had a lot of moisture in it and I could tell in the first attempt that the shortcomings of this approach (particularly the lack of ventilation and mass of cold wood pulling heat from the ember) were going to be too much.

I hacked out a conventional hearth, and still had trouble, with a two-hole approach, last ditch effort saving the day in the end. 
This method of hacking a hearth out of a downed tree was a fun experiment and might be convenient in some cold dry locations, but it wouldn’t be my first choice in a wet forest.

Heating up my water for tea this way was just an afterthought after feeding wood chips to my tinder bundle while it was sitting on the resulting platform.  I’ve been meaning to experiment with elevated fires since then, so expect to see some fun with that concept in the future. 
If you’re interested,  you can find the footage on YouTube by searching “NW Primate Log Hearth & Two Hole Ember”

Gaaaah! I'm determined to get this whitebeam set going. I know it's a very hard wood but I was getting close towards the end until I drilled through the whole board and now I'm shaking with exertion!

Things will go wrong.  Spindles go flying, embers stick to the hearth, flames die, and we drop the kindling; sometimes all in the same day.  It’s all part of the process.  On rare occasions, everything comes together beautifully.  Other times, it seems like nothing works the way it should. 
I’ve been through all of this and more enough times not to actually get frustrated today, but I added the sound effects for fun. However, I have to admit that there have been times when I’ve gone full Yosemite Sam on a set before though.

Sometimes you need to make tweaks to your set or technique, but other times it just takes some persistence.  Say few choice words if you must, but keep at it.

Hand drill and I have a love hate relationship. Somedays it loves me and other days it hates me.
I am very comfortable with bow drill and understand the form very well but I still have struggles with hand drill and my reason why is I don’t practice it enough. That’s the only way to gain some kind of confidence with a skill, practice it over and over again. 
@primitive_wilderness_survival @survive_without @rocky.hollow all gave great instruction and advice I will be following as the journey continues. 
Thanks for the photos.
