I told Matt Graham I had only ever made 2 Bow drill fires so he offered to give me a lesson in friction fire. Watch and see how I did. Oh, and we look at a couple of Condor knives too 😉

Buy the Original Condor Primitive Bush Knife by Matt Graham:

Buy Matt’s book ‘Epic Survival” ( I read it and it is good):
