Everyone has got their favorite fire starting method. Over the years I have had various fire starter kits. I think I have finally refined it down to something lightweight, simple, weatherproof, and some added functionality thrown in as well.
I start with the supplies needed for the build. I decided it wasn’t much trouble to go ahead and make a dozen to give as Christmas gifts as well.
Here are the materials required:
- geocache container 9/16″ diameter X 2.75″ long ($1.79)
- 1/8 ” X 2″ ferrocerium rod ($1.35)
- JB Weld
- Cotton Balls
- Petrolatum Jelly
- Fish hook
- 30 lb test braided nylon fishing line
- hacksaw blade
