Here I will teach you how to start a fire my way with Swedish Firesteel. You can find the materials in any house or garage.
What you need:FiresteelSteel woolPaperFuel (cardboard, more paper, wood, etc.)Fire pit or a small tray5 min.
Put your steel wool in the pan and spark it. It will start to burn, but you wont see a flame. This is how you want it. it will burn out fast.
Now put the corner of the paper on the glowing part of the steel wool and blow on it hard. It will catch fairly fast.
put the fuel on and have fun.
