Hello, my name is Tom and in today’s video I would like to show you how to make a fire but with my guest. Since I often struggled to do so and it took me a while to get the grip on it so today let me introduce to you my girlfriend Denisa.
– Hello Today I will teach her what I usually do how to work with a firesteel and how to make a fire. A good thing about the firesteel is that while the match can reach 700°C the firesteel sparks are about 3000°C so it’s definitely a better choice. Because matches can get wet in the rain,
whuch is not a problem with a firesteel. A classic firesteel usually consists of two parts. The first part is a steel stick and the second part is a metal strip. So let’s do it. Do you know what’s the first important thing? Collect small twigs or sawdust? That’s right, so let’s go! We now have to make something like a tinder There are more ways and I have prepared these two The first one is going to stick the knife here then I use the blade to make small pieces of wood. and I have a special task for you You’ll collect the twigs around here and now I have a question if you know what twigs to collect? I think it should be more dry twigs than the wet ones. You can sau that, yea. Actually, you have to collect twigs
that crack with exactly the same sound as when in the fire. So I’m going to collect twigs that crack as if they’re burning? Yeah exactly. Here we go! My task is to find some twigs around here and thanks to this knife and this blade, I grate them to make a sawdust because it is always important to start with
small things and add gradually bugger ones to the fire so that the fire won’t get smothered. You can never put a huge log into a small fire. Okay. Now my boyfriend told me to find dry twigs that crack I never did that, but I can handle it. And these look promising. – So did you find some twigs?
– All right. Now to the main thing, making the fire. Always make sure you have enough fuel because it happened to me that I made fire, I was very happy about it and it happened to me multiple times that when it started burning I found out I had no wood and I was disappointed because the fire died. So now I have here for my beloved one the firesteel she knows already from home .. I don’t really make a fire on the carpet at home. .. and I have a knife here. So let’s give it a shot. So now it’s important to start striking the firesteel
until the flames appear. and then slowly add the twigs I’ll show you how .. You’ll take the firesteel And that’s how you’ll try to make the fire – All right. Here we go!
– Yeah! As you can see, it’s hard for the first time So it looks like we’re going to try the plan B … it’s also quite windy here so it’s even more difficult So let’s move on to option B, using the cotton wool Sometimes it’s really hard to make a fire just like that.
Moreover, today it is windy and starting to rain so we have to hurry. So I took a cotton wool here. I’ll give it to my girlfriend now .. it’s important to put the cotton wool under the sawdust to have a lot of air around. I understand, the fire must have oxygen to ignite. That’s right, so let’s do it this way put it here. And then you prepare the twigs. Actually, you already did that. Now it is important to strike the sparks inside in order for the fire to ignite Now slowly As you see, she made it after all It was a little difficult, it’s wet around here .. Sometimes one needs to blow into the fire, but as you see the sawdust burns What matters is that it worked I’ll try to join too. As you could see she succeeded As you can see .. Sometimes it’s hard I have to praise my girlfriend that she made it – Thank you And see you at another video It’s starting to rain so we have to hurry – Have a nice day!
