The bow drill and all its component parts are hand made. Made from wood and it is in its natural form, sometimes it still has its bark on. Each piece has its own unique character with bends, knots, flaky bark and different colours. Although edges have been sanded, they can still sometimes be rough to touch.
The materials used in these kits are the result of many years of bushcraft fire lighting experience. ‘Choosing and preparing the correct woods and materials for the most effective bow drill fire lighting experience, takes some time to master’ says Dave Watson of Woodcraft Survival Crafts.
- The kit includes a Bow, Drill, Base board and Double Bearing Block
