Bow drill was a present for grandson so not able yet to comment on how easy it is to use/value for money. There were problems with the website when i tried to order so I had to send a query. Problems were resolved quickly and efficiently. After my purchase I queried the very high cost of p &p for this item (£9 on an item costing £25). Had to chase this query but, in the end, query was dealt with in very satisfactory fashion.

Received this on Thursday night and was planning on purely showing it to a bunch of cadets the next day as an example of a fire lighting technique (and then learning how to use it in my own time later!). Having finished my class, a colleague came over and bet me dinner that I couldn't get a fire lit using this kit. I owed him one anyway so I figured it was worth a go and I was rather shocked with myself that I managed to get a viable ember within 3 minutes! The instructions are really clear and the wood has clearly been selected well. I thought it was a bit of a cop out buying something like this rather than making one myself but it was worth it as I know that if something is not working, it's down to my technique rather than the kit. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to have a go at friction fire lighting.

Great kit, everything you need to get started with friction fire. Clear instructions and well thought out. Had a glowing ember first time out and soon succeed in lighting a fire. Most rewarding bushcraft skill when it all comes together and this kit is an ideal place to start.

Great item seems well made with comprehensive information. Not packed too well for the post however, it did arrive in one piece.
