Looking at different fire starters and not sure what to get? Consider the SE FS374 2-in-1 All-Weather Magnesium Firestarter Kit. It is small enough to fit in your pocket. It’s also waterproof, making it ideal even for poor weather conditions. These qualities make it ideal for any survival kit.
It’s a 3″ x 1″ solid magnesium fuel bar with flint. There is a single-sided serrated striker.
There are two different methods of striking. Both work equally well and depend upon your preference. Regardless, before you use the kit, you will need to scrape off the protective coating first.
Magnesium shavings are useful because they can spark and start a fire even if the climate is very wet and humid. In some circumstances, finding twigs dry enough to catch fire is impossible. It’s in those very circumstances that having the ability to create a fire is so useful. A fire can keep you warm and dry, even if its cold outside. It can also create light, helping you and others to see properly in the darkness.
The SE FS374 2-in-1 All-Weather Magnesium Firestarter Kit is designed to last. It can literally be used hundreds of times, until the magnesium runs out.
