    Have you ever started a fire with a couple of sticks?
    This might make firestarting -- and more -- a little easier.

    Yes! I have absolutely started a fire with a couple of sticks! LOL . . . in both a training environment and an operational environment . . .

    Did it once when I was in my teens. It was horrible. Got a fire going, but also got blisters out of it.

    Used sticks once. Fire starter is definitely the way to go.

    Practiced starting fires with ferro Rods and the magnedium block with a ferro rod back when I was a Volunteer with a Ground Search and Rescue team. Also packed a Blast Mach. In my gear along with about a dozen Bic lighters

    Started a fire with a bow drill once. This would have definitely been easier! (but cheating)

    started fire with many things so far,
    some intentionally:
    lighter, matches, a cigar or cigarette, magnesium powder and modded bic spark, light my fire rod and striker, battery and steel wool, old style flint and steel
    unintentionally: linseed oil and cotton rags while treating wood...
    yet to try: the sticks mentioned in main post, fire bow
    to try ICE, really last resort ofc: striking li-ion cell with pounty stick till it blows ^^
