Mora GAW winner | Fire Tips for Extreme Weather Conditions

Congratulations to our Mora HD Knife winner.
In this video we explore starting fire in extreme weather conditions and in this case it is raining for 2 days in Missouri. We try to find dry tinder by looking under logs, processing wood and collecting wind blown dead standing tinder. By getting your fire off the ground and utilizing a great quality ferrocerium rod fire starter you can manage to make a sustainable fire. Learn the resources in your bio-region and it will make fire starting easier for you. You can also cover your fire with a shelter or put it in the side of a hill by utilizing a snake hole fire pit. We make a 1 minute shelter with our rain gear in this video but if you don’t have rain gear you can use natures foliage.

Primitive Survival Shelter | No Tools | Raised Platform Bed

Primitive Survival Shelter | No Tools | Raised Platform Bed

In this video we make a primitive survival shelter that is a raised bed with no tools or cordage. The bed is approximately 4 feet off the ground and would be great for wet weather conditions. We start in a cedar thick woodland where we can utilize dead cedar trees. The trees are easy to work with because they are close together with lots of branches to stack other trees against. This type of bio-region is perfect for building bushcraft shelters. We layer the platform with loose cross sticks allowing us to sit and lay comfortably. we use hand drill friction fire to start a fire. We lay the fire on a rock layered with clay found from the creek nearby. This allows us to have a fire up on the platform bed with us. This primitive survival shelter only took one hour to complete and would be ideal for one to two nights. With a lean-to of green branches behind it it will protect us from the sun.

My Favorite Bushcraft Knife | GAW

My Favorite Bushcraft Knife | GAW

In this tag video I explain my favorite bushcraft knife is the Mora Companion HD. It is a very affordable, durable and well rounded knife to take into any outdoor bio-region. It is 8″ long with just over a 4″ blade. It offers a 1/4″ spine that needs to be ground down into a 90 degree flat edge in order to strike a ferrocerium rod effectively. It is a scandi grind and is from Sweden.

4DB Survival Products | Quality Assurance and Testing | Fire Starting Gear

4DB Survival Products | Quality Assurance and Testing | Fire Starting Gear

In this video we put 4DB products through a quality and assurance test before sending them out to customers. We test all of our various sizes of ferrocerium rod fire starters to make sure they are easy to use for kids and the elderly alike. We want to make sure that all age groups can use our products easily and start a fire if needed. We soak our products in water to also make sure that the ferrocerium will not break down and shred up during fire starting. Our ferrocerium is made of several different materials including Magnesium, Cerium and small amounts of iron. This combination allows them to be soft enough to through gobs of hot sparks yet hard enough to last a lifetime.
With these great qualities you can start a fire in almost any weather condition and potentially save your life if needed.
We also test our 4DB Fire Dust which is a combination of Osage Orange wood and Missouri fatwood dust. This combination allows for a fast ignition and long burn.
Our Wax Round fire starters are also a good choice in quick fire starting. We make ours from recycled news paper. These allow for a quick and convenient fire in almost any weather condition.
Our Extreme Weather fire starter is a 3 in 1 fire starter offering Missouri fatwood, Magnesium, and ferrocerium. This allows for fire starting in any weather condition. The Magnesium allows for a fast hot burn and the fatwood allows for a long lasting burn.
All of our product lanyards come with a jute twine inner strand that allows for a tender option if you are out and do not have a dry fire tender available. This is another great option and why 4DB is supreme over the rest of the fire starting products out there.

Building a Native American Sweat Lodge

In this video we are all building a Native American Sweat Lodge to sit in. We start by collecting Willow trees that will bend and keep they’re strength. We simply make 6 holes and bury the thick end of the willow trees into the holes. We then bend the willow slowly and tie them together. After all 6 trees are in and we have a dome type shelter we put 2 outer rims on by using smaller willow trees. These outer rims will act as additional support for the sweat lodge its self and for all the blankets and tarps we will put on it. We place a heavy duty canvas tarp on the outside. This will keep the lodge dry and the heat from the rocks in. We dig a hole in the center of the lodge for the hot rocks (grandfathers). The Native American sweat lodge has been used by our earliest ancestors. They used animal hides to cover their lodges and they used the lodge to pray to the spirits of all four directions, father sky and mother earth. In this way they could purify themselves and ask the spirits for help, health and happiness.
