Take it from us, you just can’t go out in the wilderness without an efficient way to start a fire. That’s just crazy! Live Fire’s Emergency Fire Starter burns hotter and longer than other leading emergency fire starting products, plus, it’s compact and light. It takes a spark easily from a Ferrocerium rod, lighter or match. Use it for all weather conditions because it is 100% waterproof and will even light after being submerged in water for long periods of time. A Ferrocerium rod is included.
