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.

Step 1: The Easy Find Materials

What you need:

Steel wool
Fuel (cardboard, more paper, wood, etc.)
Fire pit or a small tray
5 min.
Thanks. I bought one today, and wasn't able to "light my fire" until I tried this. It worked after 3 swipes.
Just to clear up some possible confusion, add the term "flint" by firesteel, mostly because I know quite a few people (myself included) who refer to that type of product as a "flint"
okay, thanks for the tip.
