Fire Starters

The single most important item in your survival gear bag is an element to start a fire. Whether it be a magnesium fire striker or a box of windproof and waterproof matches, it is important to be able to start a fire quickly with little effort. Survival gear without a fire starter isn't really survival gear at all. It's more like the bag in which you would like to be found with frozen and hungry in the forest.

How To Use A Fire Striker


Magnesium fire strikers require some sort of steel to make the spark. The most obvious tool is a knife. Shave some of the magnesium rod into a small pile with your fire tinder. then strike the steel on the striker to cause a spark. The shaved magnesium will give the sparks highly flammable fuel to start a fire fast.
Survival Waterproof Matches

How To Make Matches Waterproof


If you already have match sticks and prefer to make your own, you can make them waterproof. This might not be as effective as purchasing windproof and waterproof matches. All you have to do is dip the end of the matches in clear fingernail polish and set them on the edge of a table to dry. Place something under them to catch the dripping polish.
