At this time we have discontinued the production of the Fire by Friction Kits


The first "Friction Match" dates back over 188 years.

The Flint & Steel method of starting fires dates back 3,000 years.

The Bow Drill method of Fire By Friction dates back 7,000 years.

Fire By Friction in general dates back more than 300,000 years.


Welcome to the Fire by friction page.  Our troop is doing a fundraiser to help raise funds for a new trailer and other items.  If you are interested in obtaining a 60-minute detailed instructional fire by friction DVD, or a kit, and everything you need to learn the bow drill method on your own, please check out the “Resources” on this page or click on the link below and we will be in touch with you.
