Great little fire starter. Nice and light and compact. Works like a charm. One swipe and it lit up birch bark. Much easier than Flint and steel.
How does it work?
Nice... What's it called?
Unfortunately I'm not sure what it is called. I threw the package away and can't find it on the website.
It works by squeezing the side to put pressure on the striker blade and then pushing down on the rod. The harder you squeeze and push the bigger the sparks.
Been looking at this at my Wally world , may pick it up for the wifes GHB/ BOB. THANKS for the review MM.
Does it have fuel or something? Or is it kinetic energy?
Best I can remember from looking at them , is like flint rod & metal c clip. One hand operation
Yes it works similar to Flint and steel but the rod isn't flint.
Thought it was something like that , just getting foggy due to night meds
Looks the same:
Yep pretty much. Has a few extra father mine doesn't. Definitely worth the money to try.
I dunno.... I can get 2 gallons of gas and a lighter for under $8, and the gas station is closer to my house.
Hell of alot lighter than a gallon of gas and takes up alot less room. ;p
Hard to beat that Fha-whump sound of a gas ASSISTED fire though....
Can't argue with that.
Just enter survivor fire starter on the url line and search.
Dude. Why pay $25 when you can pay $8?
I bought my son the ultimate knife last year for Christmas and he has started so many fires in the gravel driveway (with supervision) that he broke the fire starter the other day. One trip to Walmart and picked him one of those up to try out. He seemed to like it, so I am going to get a few more to throw in his hunting pack at his house. I know that if anything ever happens, I don't have to worry about him, his mother and my youngest son being cold because that kid makes a fire better and faster than I do . Me and his mother are divorced now, so it actually makes me feel better knowing he can do those things...
That's great. Teach him as many different methods as you can. Fire is probably the most important thing when it comes to survival. It doesn't matter if you can hunt, trap and find water if you can't keep warm, cook and sterilize.
