Firecraft: Vol 1 - Pocket Guide
An introduction to fire lighting, tinder processing & campfire creation. Firecraft: Vol 1 is aimed at those who have little or no prior experience with fire making. This field guide gives a basic overview of some of the core concepts within fire craft, covering an example of campfire preparation, construction and finally, lighting and maintaining a fire using the following tools; Ferrocerium Rod, Flint & Steel and a Burning Glass (convex magnifying glass)
We self-publish these guides in small batches to accompany many of our new fire making kits and sets, but will also be offering it as a standalone purchase. Printed and bound with a thick front and back cover with matte finish. We've used a heavier than standard paper stock throughout the guide for added durability and clarity to the diagrams and colour photographs.
- All smoke is carcinogenic, so take care not to inhale it when handling, blowing and creating your fire.
- Always seek permission and obey the laws within your specific county and/or country when pursuing these kinds of activities.
We recommend the following safety precautions be taken when carrying out the practical activities using our equipment. These are:
- Care should be taken with our flint as it is 'knapped' to have a very sharp edge.
- Wear eye protection.
- Wear protective gloves (e.g. well-fitting leather work gloves)
- Not suitable for children (equipment should be kept in a secure place)
