(2) High-quality bow drill spindles made from a cedar species that you will not find at your local lumber yard.
Red cedar is a softer wood that
creates embers very quickly and consistently. Only a few well-placed bow
thrusts are needed for a brightly-burning ember.
These spindles have been special ordered for Primitive Fire kits and are not found anywhere else!
Pro Tip: We recommend NOT using red cedar spindles with red cedar fire boards since it is a less-dense wood it tends to break down too fast. Use red cedar spindles with cottonwood fire boards, or use cottonwood or hickory spindles with red cedar fire boards for best results.
