Fire Starters

Over a million years ago, our prehistoric ancestors discovered the natural phenomena of fire and learned how to harness its power. Fire was used for illumination, for defense and safety, and for cooking. Fast forward to the present date and while industrialized technology reigns supreme, we modern humans still incorporate the element of fire for the very same reasons as our primitive genealogical relatives did. When pitted against an extreme situation in the wilderness, outside the close conveniences of civilization, the ability to start a fire can increase your chances of survival tenfold. Fires can be used to signal for help and assistance, to keep warm during nightfall and extreme drops in temperature, as well as cooking wild caught fish and game to destroy any potential life-threatening parasites. Our fire starter selections include magnesium spark rods and flints, fuel cubes, tinder, waterproof matches, and complete fire starter kits that include all of the aforementioned necessary components to effortlessly start a fire without having to resort to rubbing sticks together. Of course, the method of rubbing sticks is an important skill to know, especially if you spend any considerable amount of time in the outdoors with minimal equipment. But when the elements and other natural circumstances prevent you from applying this skill to use, a fire starter kit from can accelerate the process in an efficient manner.
