Woodswoman Survival Lilly sure makes it all look so easy. Here she teaches us a great old trick for making a quick fire.

Feather sticks allow the outdoors enthusiasts to start a fire in wet conditions quite quickly. All you need is your knife and a chunk of dry wood to carve slivers on the wood’s edge. These feathered areas allow a flame to breathe and catch very well as demonstrated by Survival Lilly using a knife and a flint sparker.

The old ways of the woodsmen and woodswomen are certainly not obsolete in the modern day. Feather sticks work just as well now as they did 300 or more years ago.
