This video will show you an old school, efficient way to make fire.
Watch as this man teaches you how to make a 2-3 hour fire using a single log.
The technique is known as the “Swedish Torch Fire,” and it was invented by soldiers in Europe in the 1600s. They developed it out of necessity due to their infamous lack of fire wood and the debilitatingly frigid temperatures.
This strategy allows for a controlled amount of oxygen to come into the fire which keeps it burning for an extended period of time. It’s perfect for a fire for both warmth and cooking.
We will definitely be trying this this summer!
