Bushcraft fire with 4" hand drill and damp leaves

Back to kit & videos

A youtube video of Dale demonstrating some of the skills taught on our bushcraft courses. Here you can see fire by friction with a very short elder hand drill being used to create an ember which is then placed into a bundle of damp leaves to create fire. Dale explains how this is done. For a more detailed explanation of the floating hands bushcraft skill click here. Skills like these are taught on our bushcraft courses, which along with the many additional tips and expert guidance you'll receive from Dale, ensure your best possible chances of success with this method.
