Working Fire Piston

It works! For real! This thing may take a bit of preparation before use, but it sure is faster and easier than my bow drill…

A fire piston creates an ember for starting a fire. It does this by rapidly compressing air, the air molocules rub together and make tremendous heat.

I’ll post a video of how mine works later; if you’re curious, check out Youtube for some great demos.
