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.

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.
In honor of Kullcraven bushcraft and survival (link below)

Primitive Cutting Tool , Bone Handle and Natural Cordage Scabbard

In this video I make a primitive cutting tool using mahogany obsidian and a bone I recently found during a long hike in the woods. I start by flint knapping the obsidian to fit the bone handle. This only takes a short time because I choose an obsidian flake that matches closely. I then grind the bone handle to shape it as well. I add a small piece of leather to fill in the gaps when I place the obsidian flake into the bone. I use white tail deer sinew that I harvested last season to secure the obsidian in place. This is flimsy at first but will dry very hard and sturdy. During the drying process I start on the natural cordage scabbard where I use basswood inner bark and red cedar bark to make. I harvested the red cedar bark in approximate 1/2″ strips down to the cambium layer so they will easily stay together during weaving. I reverse wrap the basswood inner bark to make approximately 6′ of cordage, this will take the most time and resources. I then use a simply, “under – over” braiding or weaving technique to complete a flat mat. This technique is great for making natural cordage clothing, foot wear or other gear like this sheath/scabbard. After I have a big enough mat I simply fold it over my cutting tool and braid the two ends together. I accompany it with a small piece of basswood cordage for a belt hanging loop. This project only took me a couple hours and is it very handy to have for convenience. The scabbard turned out a little long but it is okay as I can use the extra cordage at a later time if I need to.
I demonstrate the sharp edge of the obsidian blade which is unmatched as far as sharpness. It slices through leather and basswood inner bark with ease. With this tool I could easily process any wild game or complete any tasks around camp.

Drilling ferro rods is not to tricky. I use a black and decker 11/64 bit. The duller the bit the more sparks and heat. You may break a ferro rod if your not careful. These bits are good for about 20-25 ferro rods then they start getting dull. I drill 4DB 5″x1/2″ with these

The One Time Fire


also I drill the 1″ giant ferro rods
https://4directionsbushcraft.com/product/5-x-1-giant-ferro-rods/
be very careful when drilling ferro rods and wear eye protection.

4DB is also offering all natural tinder bracelets
https://4directionsbushcraft.com/product/hemp-and-fatwood-tinder-bracelets/
These are perfect for EDC and if your ever stuck without dry tinder you will always be able to start a fire with these fatwood and hemp bracelets. We will do a video demonstrating these soon.

Merry Christmas
