    Hi all. I just wanted to share a fire kit I put together from stuff we have in the shop. Every time I go backpacking here in NC, it rains on me. And when it's not raining, the humidity is 80%, so I usually have a hard time finding good kindling. I designed this kit to overcome these challenges...

    Ok, I have been using this for a few years now and it has done me pretty good. Its just one of many fire making methods that I use. I made a quick video vs using pics and text because its just easier to learn from a video for most people. How to make a waterproof match with a customizable...

    I've taken to compiling what I believe would make good tinder now every chance I get. Working on a construction site, I have tons of sawdust that I can take. I also just got a batch of bamboo brush that seems to catch a flame quick, but burn slowly so I'm looking into seeing if I can store...

    I was thinking the piezoelectric ignitor from a lighter could be an awesome EDC as it provides a virtually infinite amount of electrical discharges for firestarting.

    I own 2 magnesium firestarters, and scraping the shavings is the dreaded part. It just simply takes too long. Is there any kind of tool or technique which can make this process a whole lot quicker??? :o:

    I've been using a magnesium firestarter for over a year now, and it still doesn't cease to amaze me on how reliable and effective they really are. Such a simple concept really: a simple bar of magnesium, and a rib of ferrocerium. It is easy for a 14 year old like myself to use it, as well as...

    Just curious as to what kind of matches everyone carries. I personally like Diamond strike-anywhere matches for good old camp matches, but for survival and emergencies, I use Storm matches. Does anyone know where I can find strike anywhere matches in florida??? I can only find them in Alabama...
