So what's in your fire staring kit ?

Recommended Posts

The Art of firecraft is one of the basic survival skills. To help out, you should have a kit that is part of your survival gear. How you start a fire is a matter of personal taste. For me i like the quick and easy methods. Here is a list of what i carry.

- cotton balls mixed with Vaseline. stored in a old pill bottle

- flint and striker

- waterproof matches in waterproof container

- windproof matches in another waterproof container

- 000 steel wool

- carbon steel survival knife

- 9 volt battery with duct tape to cover leads.

 

Lets hear what you carry and any methods you may use.

thats what i use delta, a rod and striker.

i did however upgrade to a piece of hacksaw blade. its a way better striker but it will put a hurting on the rod after a while. but since this is for emergency use i'll be fine. it also helps knowing i have a killer striker

in the event too. 100x better than the stock one too.

I carry everything in a small tin that I use for making charcloth. Inside is a 3/8 firesteel, Flint and steel, a small pack of welding flints, jute string, fatwood,small BIC lighter, magnifying glass, piece of magnesium , charcloth in a bag, and 4 cotton balls with PJ on them.

 

The kit is small but very effective and has been in use for a couple years. It fits perfectly inside a waterproof Turkey call holder.

LMFAO at this idiot...

 

 

 

P.S.

Truck box kit or G.H.B.

My kit has 2 magnesium fire starters.

A 1 gallon freezer bag full of dryer lint.

Kitchen matches in a weather proof container.

4 bic lighters

Course steel wool and extra long jumper cables.

(If I was on foot I wouldn't be carrying the jumpers and steelwool.)

fero rods, i have about a half dozen secreted all over in various states of wear. I carry small bottles of hand sanitizer, works well to get a fire jumping in moist conditions(people think I carry it because I'm a germphobe and nothing's further from the truth lol, gray firestarter. I have bits of jute twine wrapped on all sorts of stuff so I'm almost never without it. I always have one of my carbon steel machetes nearby either in my truck when I'm out, or on my person out in the sticks. Finally I have the ever present bic lighter.

I’m not sure why fire starting and fire starting kits doesn’t have its own section completely. I have been on simple camping trips where starting a fire became a time consuming event. Over time I have put together a few kits. Which one I bring with me really depends on what I’m doing and how long I’m going to be out for. I have a Marine Corps issued woodland camo shaving kit bag that I have filled with fire starting kits. I like to carry it with everything in it if I have the room. I normally like to cycle through everything to make sure that it’s all working and isn’t spent. I also think it’s pretty important to practice starting fires different ways to keep up on them.

-Camel Snus can full of charcloth

-Jute string

-BIC lighter 5x

-Magnifying glass

-Camel Snus can with dryer lint and steel wool with taped 9v

-Cotton balls mixed with Vaseline

-Matches-

-Bear Grylls knife with a ferrocerium rod

-Skinning knife that I wear around my neck that has magnesium fire starter on the sheath

-Magnesium fire starter

-2 flint and strikers

-Welding tool flint and striker- works very well when your hands are cold.

- A few feet of 550 cord to make a bow drill with

And maybe a few other things that I’m leaving out. Without fire, survival can be pretty rough.

In a metal candy tin, I carry some bark from an Australian paper bark tree (highly flammable stuff), vaseline covered cotton in a water proof canister along w some matches, in an altopids tin some dryer lint, jute twine, a ferrocerium rod and striker, a lighter. Oh and some Charred cloth. All this is in that candy tin. In an emergency bushcrafting situation I don't want to be without fire because I didn't have the right thing for conditions, so I kind of prepared for any conditions...Ive been cold and unable to get a fire going. It sucked.

long time since i posted here previously

 

welcome sherlockian100

 

50 BIC lighters and numerous other methods of starting a fire I can start a fire with 2 things

no larger than a match head and I have them all the time and so does most everyone.

it does it all by itself no rubbing no sweating,and weather has little effect as long as you have

enough dry tinder to get it going big enough to fire larger branches.

 

chemistry is a wonderful thing and that is why people need to research now so "IF" the time comes

they will have the tried and tested ways to survive.

I will not explain how because chemistry and other elements of the tactical life can be found on the net

and I have no will to cause injury or give ideas to morons or enemies of our country so

caution, lose lips sink ships etc.
