We are done! Thank you to all who entered or just enjoyed looking at the entries. This one was a lot of fun. Please help us out now by voting who you liked the best.
This contest is to start a fire. Any fire at all to sustainable knee flames. The only catch is we want you to be as creative as possible. Try to think of something new or do something old in a creative way.
As something new maybe try one of those funky survival tricks we all have seen but probably haven't tried. Or some of the rarer primitive techniques such as rattan fire thong. Maybe recreate that fire tornado thing with fans. In the old but creative, something like 10x prep split wood fire would be (not) fun. Anything jcl-MD hasn't tried in the bow drill department probably another idea (good luck with that.) A twist on the hardwoodsman fires maybe? Dunno, that's what being creative is all about. Get out and have fun and start a fire.
The dates for the submissions are from, 1/1/2013 until 1/23/2013.
This like all of our contests will be decided by voting. I will change this thread to a poll with each user who entered's name at some point on my 24th (late in the US night.)
Start a fire and be as creative as possible
Knee high flames and a sustainable fire must be shown
Submissions can be pictures or video (video is preferred)
Submissions must be NEW and I will moderate that, hopefully we are all honest enough here though
So get out there and have some fun!!
Wait.. What did I forget?! The prize! Y'all would probably like to see that.. It will be a traditional flint and steel set. These strikers are awesome. And the flint is well flint. Comes in a little bag. I will also throw in a bit of the traditional tinder and a few of the "tsukebi" sulfur tipped sticks that were used to get the flame before matches were invented from my personal larger set. The little kits themselves will be around a $40 value in our store so not a bad prize I think.
I will try and take a picture of everything I put together as the prize within a week or so. I need to order the kit and everything stops for the entire week in Japan on New Years. There is all the info about this stuff you could ever need in this thread: Traditional Japanese Flint & Steel
OK FIRE GO!
