The Best of 4DB Fatwood / Pine lighter Firestarter

The Best of 4DB Fatwood / Pine lighter Firestarter

This video is all about the best fatwood/pine lighter that 4 Directions Bushcraft and our customers have come to love! We have been blessed to be able to brand our own self harvested Missouri fatwood/pine lighter natural tinder for over two years now. This all natural tinder is harvested with care from dead pine trees in our area. It is a supreme fire starting tinder because of the flammability of the terpenes and pine sap. It is also 100% water proof. We offer our fatwood in many different varieties such as 1 lbs. bags, and fatwood sticks on lanyards with the 4DB camouflage carabiner. Please see our links below where you can purchase your own 4DB fatwood/pine lighter and see for yourself the supreme quality.

Please join the 4DB Facebook Group for a chance to win 4DB gear. When our FB group hits 2000 members we will give out gear randomly.

Primitive Skills: Shelter Building | NO TOOLS

Primitive Skills: Shelter Building | NO TOOLS

In this video I show many different primitive technology skills to build a simple overnight shelter without the use of cordage or a knife. I simply use dead standing wood that can easily be broken using different leverage techniques. I use Muscadine grape vine to secure the tripod together so it will support the weight. Instead of using an and out weave to tie the tripod together I simply turn the middle tripod pole the opposite direction which binds it together. I use green brush for cover on the shelter. The shelter is built around a previous snake hole fire pit which allows my fire to stay out of the elements. To start my fire I use a handrill friction fire with yucca stalk, basswood hearth and cedar bark tinder. I keep the stones in the fire while I finish my shelter for about 45 minutes or so. I allow the fire to die down so I can access the stones. I procure water in a natural stone bowl using a stone boil method. You must use caution when putting stones in a fire, if they are wet they may explode and cause injury. Although the water is a little dirty it will be good to drink. It does have a little coal in the water from the stones which is good in that it will help neutralize toxins. When the water cools and most of the silt has settled at the bottom I can then drink. If I wanted I could flavor the water with pine needles or cedar as well. These would also offer nutrients such as vitamin C. I practice skills all over but here in the eastern woodlands we have many resources that can be utilized in order to thrive in nature. The shelter, water, fire and natural container supplying water only took me approximately 2 hours to acquire. If this were a survival type situation I would have plenty of time to find food as well. The raspberry close to the creek would supply a good food source but the berries have not grown yet. Remember the wild raspberry has a chalky stalk with a 3 fingered leave and plenty of thorns. Also do not eat wild foods before doing the proper research on them.

4DB Primitive Haversack Dump

4DB Primitive Haversack Dump

This is my handmade primitive leather haversack that gifted to me by my good friend Mike Parker at:
https://www.facebook.com/mike.parker.3517

I keep this primitive kit with me in my vehicle all the time. In this video I spontaneously dump it out because I was inspired by my hand drill friction fire on this day to go through my kit. It has been 8 long months since my right hand was seriously injured and I’ve been unable to to any primitive skills. I was successful with the hand drill which was nice but I did pay the price with a big blister just below my scar. In my primitive kit I have everything from deer bones to sinew, pine pitch to natural cordage willow bark. I show how I processed my deer hide and sinew and also how I spall my obsidian for use in making primitive arrows. All these items are great for survival, bushcrafting and self reliance. It is great to learn the skills of our ancestors.

The Art of Primitive Survival Skills

The Art of Primitive Survival Skills


In this collaboration video I use clips from all of our primitive skills videos found throughout our YouTube channel. These are skills that we feel are essential for survival in the wilderness. We had fun showing many of the unique skills by slowing and speeding up the film. This allows us to pack many videos and primitive survival skills into one. We have organized this video into fire, fire cooking, primitive clay pottery, firing clay pottery, primitive bushcraft shelters, primitive survival traps, primitive axes and tools. We hope you enjoy!!
