  • I don’t want you to think that I am pushing a product, but the simplicity of a FireSteel from FireSteel.com makes things easy. I’m just surprised that people never mention this item. I stumbled onto the website and ordered one to see what is was like. One strike on greased cotton,steelwool,fatwood etc… you have a flame. The guy’s prices are good. I ordered this for my sisters and took a minute to teach them and they got the knack. I got matches, lighters and like such as a backup, but the FireSteel is so simple that it cuts down storing a great quantity of friestarting equiptment.
    Any thoughts out there?

    • I prefer a bic lighter as my first option but the firesteel is definintely a must have. I keep them in my bug out bags, vehicle kits, and I used to have one in my EDC kit when I hauled my leatherman wave around all day. While they do take a bit of practice they are certianly durable and reliable. Thanks for the thoughts.

    I’ve camped with others who make fun of me using a ferrous rod to start a simple wood fire while they are setting up their electric coffee pots and flat screen TVs. But when it all hits the fan I’ll be warm and reading a book while my coffee perks on the fire.

    • I’m sure they’ll be coming to you when their lighters and matches finally run out! As with anything, it’s best to know as many ways as possible to get something done.

    It’s amazing how something that seems so simple can be so darn difficult in practice! If I’ve learned anything it’s that preparation is key.
