Fire by friction
« on: April 16, 2012 »

Hi All,

We have been practicing and teaching fire by friction for some time now and we are always asked about books etc on the subject mainly about bowdrill. There are plenty of books out there that show techniques on the subject but we always found small points missing that to some are irrelevant but to the beginner are important. So over the past 6 months we gathered our thoughts and pictures and put them into a small book covering the bowdrill, from choosing woods through to cord attachment and onto producing that ember and creating fire. The book has since been published on kindle I have included a link below. It isn't the longest or the most I depth book but we feel it covers a lot of the questions we have been asked. If there are any questions on it or comments feel free to contact us.

Cheers guys!
