I like wiffle sticks, these work well no matter what method of ignition is used.
It seems like they may be called, Feather Sticks, Fuzz Sticks or most anything, but the idea is the same.
Take your larger, dry wood, and use your knife to reduce the size to a easily ignited shaving.
This is to be used in conjunction with small, but increasingly larger material.
I usually will get all material available before ignition. intial tinder, supplemental tinder, kindling and fuel wood.
This includes the Firebox (rocks or small logs shaped around the fire material.
You'll want to control the wind and air available to your fire.
I'm ok with magnesium starters, and of course, matches, lighters and such.
I'm not so sure about using the bow method.
I have heard that this method is taught, so you will never forget to pack matches
