My thoughts on the basics are have a few modern items, a fall back and a traditional.
So for fire I have a lighter(s), flint striker(s) and will probably consider this for a traditional as opposed to rubbing sticks together etc.
Go to YouTube and search fire piston. You'll see people igniting all sorts of stuff.
Yeah, Bic lighters, firesteels, two sticks, they all work. Acquire and use whatever floats your boat.
No one is saying any one thing is better than another.
Many, and myself including, tend to have more than one way to skin that cat.
