Survival Saturday #6 – How to start a fire with Birch Bark

My dad always talked about how birch bark was one of the best tools to start a fire. We would choose it because it was high in resin and would burn even when wet. Add to that the fact that it burns for a long time and you can really see it’s hard to beat.

Check out the video below where I start a fire using birch bark ignited by a fire steel (ferrocerium rod).
