What happens when you are out camping in the middle of the woods and you need to start a fire but all of your matches are wet? You don't want to wait around for them to dry because it is getting dark, and they might not even work. What do you do? Well, if you had some flint, your problem would be solved.
Knowing how to start a fire using flint is very useful and can save you a lot of trouble. Unlike matches, flint can be used in almost any situation at almost any time, and you don't have to worry about your flint getting ruined if it gets wet.
Step 1: Materials
Here is what you will need to start a fire using flint:
-A pocket knife (Only if your flint does not have a scraping tool)
-Small kindling to get your fire going (Paper, cardboard, dry grass, and small dry twigs all work well)
-Larger fuel to keep your fire going (Sticks and eventually logs, once your fire gets big enough)
