Corked Cedar Firestarter

$30.00 Sold Out

Fire starters are what you carry into the wild when you are preparing for the unknown. These wild places write the rules on unknowns. A gas-fueled lighter can create a quick flame most of the time, but its fuel is finite and no one knows when that flint and inner spring will give out. Plus, have you ever gotten a lighter wet?

This corked Cedar fire starter is a simple and unique design. It's made from a cut off of Western red cedar, a ferrocerium rod, and a striker that is made from a hacksaw blade and attached with a length of 550 nylon parachord. The best part of this Cedar fire starter is what's hiding inside! The Cedar handle has been hollowed out and fitted with a wine cork. We've stuffed the handle with shredded birch bark for those times when you can't find bone-dry tinder in the wild.

*This ferrocerium fire rod will work when wet and can last well over a hundred fires.

*Purchase includes fire starter, striker/parachord, cork, and chamber filled with birch bark shavings.
