When you get your kit, and pull it out of it's packaging, you will find a pre-burned hole with a notch, already in the fire board. It's all ready to go for making bow drill fires! Just pull it out and start bowing.
The fire board and spindles are crafted out of Cottonwood. Cottonwood makes consistent and fast bow drill fires. The ceramic palm rock is designed to reduce friction between the palm rock and the spindle, to make bowing more effortless. The bow string is a strong static cord to prevent stretching and increase reliability in the wilderness.
Our kits are built by professional bow drill masters and Made in the USA. These kits are excellent gifts for men and women who want to make fire the Mountain Man way and think matches are for wimps. :)
