Class Description

This class is about teaching every step to Fire By Friction, a Bow Drill Fire Technique. We will teach you how to use your constructed kit to produce an ember that will light your fire. The kit that you make will be yours to take home, but more importantly, you will gain the knowledge to do it yourself again.

You will need to bring your own sharpened knife that is a comfortable size for you to work with. The survival size of 5" fixed blades are all inclusive. We do offer some for sale, so contact us if you are interested and we can give you details.
