Fire Starters

There are plenty ways to make cheap fire starters, but I bought a pack of WetFire Starters to try it out anyway. You can light ’em while they’re floating on water, make shavings to conserve the entire block, or just some minor league pyro fun [The Packing Rat does not condone negligent fire play]. It’s not a magical block – it still needs a dry surface to ignite. The cool thing is that you can take the unused portions, dry it up, store it in a film canister to use it later. No burns were suffered during the creation of this film.

    Well, I got it because it seemed relatively inexpensive. $2.50 for a box of 8. I already had cotton balls for my survival kit, but this makes a very good replacement. What I really like in particular about this block is that you can make some small shavings, kindling if you will, and keep the rest to use later.
