  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've had a mini bic lighter in a first aid kit in my truck for several years. It is a waist pack kit kept inside a soft side 6 pack cooler, inside a softside 12 pack cooler to try to keep from heat. Yesterday I tried to light it and nothing but grey dust came from flint. Anyone had that...

    I just came across this and thought it might be of interest: It's a small ferro 'rod' that replaces the toothpick in a Swiss army knife. Might be useful if you don't use the toothpick very...

    I believe there is way too much interest in Ferrocerium rods in a "Wilderness Survival Kit". This is equipment that you should have on you (on your person)whenever you are in the "Wilderness". That could save your life if you were separated from your main pack or gear. Honestly, I find them...

    Before the invention of matches, trappers and pioneers alike used flint and steel to get their fires going. Their lives depended on the quality of their gear, and since flint and steel is so reliable, why don't they sell it anywhere? I can only get a steel striker once a year when the...
