I still don't get the point of a firestarter, that requires fire, to start it.

I have to really think about this. I ask myself "Self, what are the chances I will find myself out in the woods, without adequate clothing, rain gear or a ferro rod, yet I thought to bring 16 oz of Thermite just in case?"

I mean, if thermite is what you are relying on, then maybe you need to rethink your plan to go into the woods in the first place.

Now, if you plan to use it to ignite a magnesium engine block from a VW or Porsche, and hose it down with water as a 4rth of July fanalie, then I can see the value of it!!

It's useful stuff, but there needs to be an easier way to ignite it!
Come on folks, think think think.
What happens when the magnesium fire lighters are no more????
Do we have to set up a magnesium mine somewhere or think outside the box??

THIS is exactly what I was asking. It's a firestarter that needs fire to start so...i'm already confused as to why buy it? how is this used for an emergency? I mean is it only for super damp wet wood, and if you have a bic lighter you can light the ribbon and get a fire started?

I've always wanted a supply of thermite, but not as a fire starter.

I thought it would be something good to have on hand in case TSHTF, and I needed an alternate escape route. In my neck of the woods the lumber company's put gates on any road they can, IF things got bad enough I'd like to be able to melt the locks off and get out using a route no one else is.

Again I would only do this if TSHTF, and I had no other way out....

If your using it as a fire starter, that is pretty much it. It'll get those hard to start fires with the wettest wood started. Don't need kindling really.

Thanks for bringing that up. Even though you require an ignition source for the thermite, the amount of energy thats released after ignition is second to none. It doesn't matter how ugly the conditions are, thermite does a terrific job at starting fires.

You can do one of three things: stock up on a few rolls of magnesium ribbon, buy the chemicals to make your own ignitors, or purchase ignitors directly from IceDemon, who I fully endorse.

I also updated my original post discussing the product.

You need to send him a private message. You might have to post some more before you can send a private message to anybody here.

I still fee a ferro rod, and 2 magnesium rods of the same size are the unbeatable combination. Mag blocks are nice, but they were meant for emergencies, and they don't have enough of a striker on them. It always burns out before you are halfway through the block.

If I could make the ultimate combination, I would have one 7/8" X 6" ferro rod (same size as a dinner candle), and 2 magnesium, rods the same size as that. Heck, you could even do with one mag rod. I would be using the Ferro rod without the magnesium most of the time anyway.

And yes, I have started fires in the rain with ferro and magnesium.

Hi there. Just from an economical standpoint, it wouldn't be worth my time to offer my products on CL; the survival market isn't large at all on there. Sorry, you got me mixed up with someone else.
