Why do I need this?
The Fire starter survival tool is weatherproof and designed for use in even the most fire-hazardous situations. As an avid camper, I would like to tell you: There is hardly anything less pleasant than setting up camp in the pouring rain and not having a chance to dry off. The ability to start a fire even with wet tinder is invaluable.
How does it work? Simply. Tear off the ends of the rope, then take the flint and hit it against the “steel” (the iron rod). It sends a shower of sparks directly onto the rope, which then catches fire and burns until your kindling catches fire. Unlike a traditional flint and steel that only gives off a few sparks, the longer stick ensures you get enough sparks to start a fire on the first try, every time.
The kit includes a ferro rod and firing pin, as well as a 36-inch rope, resulting in more than three hours of continuous burn time. Of course, you don’t need all of this just for starters – it should be enough for thousands of individual hits. It’s super easy to use, so you don’t have to worry about missing the “touch” – this is even suitable for people who don’t think Bear Grylls is the coolest.
What reviewers say
“Dummy-proof” said one fan. “I got this for our emergency kits because in Ohio we usually experience everything! Yes, all four seasons: bad winters, bad storms that leave us powerless, and tornadoes. We also live on a fault, so the kids and I made travel bags in case we ever need them. Matches are great, but eventually you run out of matches. I wanted something that was waterproof and long enough so I wouldn’t get burned and could easily start a fire. I took this thing outside today and we happened to have 50 mph gusts… and it worked amazingly.
“Great firelighter tool set for camping, hiking, your emergency tool kit, car tool bag, outdoor cooking, etc. It features a ferro rod flint, a steel scraper and a feedable tinder wick rope for fuel, in a metal case.” Plenty of feedable wick rope to start multiple fires.” said one happy user. “A must for emergency or camping gear.”
Another Parents chimed in like this: “We bought this firelighter for our daughter as she is heading off on an adventure soon. She has several, but my husband is always looking for an easier method for her. This tool is just the thing! Simply fray the end of the rope and strike the rod with the firing pin. It works every time.”
The only complaint from customers was how thin the rope had to be. “I don’t like that the rope has to be loosened to a fine, hair-like height.” said one shopper.
