Igniting char cloth

A quick video on igniting char cloth, including with traditional flint & steel, fire steel, parabolic mirror, fire piston and a lens.  Of course, it doesn’t have to be char cloth, it could quite as easily be other charred material such as birch polypore or punkwood.

We cover igniting char on many of our bushcraft courses such as on our 2 Day Bushcraft Course5 Day Bushcraft Course and IOL Bushcraft Competency course.

You can see plenty of photos from these courses, as well as all of our others, on our Facebook page.
