In this course, we cover all elements of fire creation from the stone age to the new age. Incorporating the creation of friction fire, flint and steel and progressing through the ages all the way to the modern bic-type lighter or finger drill as I like to call it. We also teach the implementation of adaptive situational emergency fire lighting and the dependable use of organic materials in the success of fire.
Eagle Ridge Survival puts a huge emphasis on fire craft because it is the great equalizer, when other skills may be lacking; the ability to make fire on skills rather product level is so important, why? Because when you need fire the most, it’s the hardest to create.
