At some point in a camping or survival situation you may need to make fire - for heat or cooking. It's fine to use a bic lighter, but you may not always have something.


At summer scout camp there was a gentleman who would teach us many different ways to start a fire, from a bow drill to a 9v battery and steel wool. The most interesting method he used was the fire piston. However, that requires a special device.


Recently I learned about fire rolling, and that has become my new favorite method for starting a fire without a purpose-made device. Know any other good methods?
