A Bow Drill Demonstration

Instructor Kevin goes through an honest demonstration of lighting a fire with a bow drill set (note the thick smoke and flames just visible in the last few frames) towards the end of a Woodcrafter course.

Getting a valid ember (and eventually flame) from a bow drill set is more about preparation of materials and technique than any other factor, but it must be said that when certain survival and bushcraft TV personalities do it on TV, it always seems to take much less time and effort than every other professional and vastly experienced instructor I’ve ever worked with…
