I have been involved in Bushcraft 8+ years and now focus on primitive fire lighting techniques from the stone age. I have been experimenting for the last year in hand drill friction fire and Bow drill friction fire. I currently teach friction fire at monthly bushcraft meets. The materials I use are british trees, shrubs and plants.

I have made progress in technique and materials. Learning floating hands technique for hand drill which only a few people in this country can do. I have pushed material knowledge in achieving fire using bramble stalk and dock which are not known as usable in the UK. I continue to experiment with further materials.
