Maslin Leg Drill

This idea was developed by my friend Jamie Maslin and i thought I would share his video:

Here’s me making fire by friction with my leg! I’m bracing my hand against my other leg, but if necessary, you could use a tree instead. This means that you could do this with both a broken leg and broken arm – in theory that is!!!!

In practise, you would still have to carve the drill, hand hold and board of course; unless you had it in your kit bag or base camp ready to go.

You can also do this by tying the cordage to you elbow and using your arm for a bow (if you hold the cordage out slightly with your thumb). This method requires both hands though unless you use a mouth piece.

Would love to see any other new methods people have come up with.

Hope you enjoy!
