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.

Primitive Cutting Tool , Bone Handle and Natural Cordage Scabbard

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.

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.
