    I can say I only know of the two most common, which are matches and a lighter using compressed gas. What other ways can someone create fire easily. Thanks.

    I would say the most sustainable way that is relatively easy is flint, steel & tinderbox.

    A nine volt battery and steel wool will work the same way, but here is a link using a AA battery and a chewing gum wrapper.

    Well I have found a well made fire piston to be long lasting and easy to use.

    In California, that would be PG&E (Pacific Gas & Electric) just ask all those folks that got burned out in the last big forest fire.

    @Bishop: Have you ever tried the cotton ball friction method using charcoal dust?
    It seems like that would be ideal.

    Some of these seem like a whole lot of work, and if you didn't have a match or a lighter why would you ever have the materials required, but I thought it might be interesting.

    Things to catch and fuel you spark or ember

    Jute Twine (Unwound and Fluffed)
    Char Cloth
    Toilet paper or Kleenex
    Steel Wool
    Cotton ball
    Greased Cotton ball
    Gause
    Dryer Lint
    Cattail Fluff (Dry)
    Birch Bark (Shredded)
    Saw Dust
    Cotton rope or string (Unwound and fluffed)
    Spanish Moss (Dead and Dry)
    Punk wood
    Pine Bark
    Some fungus
    Fat Wood (Very Fine shavings or scrapings)

    I make a sort of pompom bundle and use jute as the cord to keep my ferrocerium rods and scrapers together. That way I have everything together to start my fire.

    I make char cloth and char rope from a cotton rope for my use with flint and steel and store it together in a metal tinder box.

    A small roll of toilet paper is a great thing to have for several reasons. With a Feroceriumrode it works as well as char cloth Charmin actually makes rolls for camping that have no cardboard roll in the middle allowing to be a lot smaller than a regular roll of toilet paper. It is in a plastic dispenser and is a must-have in all of my bug out bags.
