4 Simple Steps To Making a Fire Torch

Every survivalist or outdoorsman should learn the necessary skills to surviving out in the wilderness (finding water, creating fire, and building a shelter, just to name a few.)  Learning how to make a fire torch is one of those skills that could be beneficial for survival in the outdoors.  After surfing the web for the best fire torch making techniques, I have narrowed the process down to 4 simple steps.  Even though it is not one of the most important skills to learn, making a fire torch can provide primitive lighting, and can also be used a fire starter.   They are also pretty damn cool. 

Here is what you will need:
  • Wooden Stick
  • Cloth or toilet paper
  • Survival wire, nails, or stapler
  • Accelerant (oil, kerosene, gas, etc.)
