How to light a fire with a compass

I generally have a compass with me when I’m wandering around, whether that’s in the woods, the coast or the hills.  Not all compasses have a magnifying lense built in but it makes sense to have one that does.

In this short video I show how to light a fire with a compass.

We teach how to light a fire with a compass on our 1 Day2 Day and 5 Day Bushcraft Courses as well as the IOL Bushcraft Competency Award and Certificate.

You can see plenty of photos from all of these courses on our Facebook page.
