Master Blacksmith, Mark Constable, shows us how to make a portable forge out of a metal bucket, a metal pipe and a foot pump. Mark has found this an ideal way to produce a working charcoal fire without the need for electricity. He expertly fashions a fire steel on his forge to create sparks with a flint. Mark`s son Harry shows us how char cloth, made from natural fibre, can be ignited by a single spark and then used to light a tinder bundle to start a bigger fire.
