Simple Swedish fire log .

Our good friend Pete the Hat a well known woodsman around these parts wanted to try and make the classic fire log from a well seasoned ash log .

Cut with a bacho crosscut bow saw and stuffed with king Alfred’s cake tinder fungus and birch bark then struck with a light my fire fire steel .

We tried several seasoned logs from the hedge including birch and hawthorn and oak but the ash and birch were definitely the best .
