The absolute bare bones you want to be stuck with when in need of a fire. All you will need to get a fire going without a lighter. Keep this handy pack in your daybag, car or hiking pack. Great for emergency when a live flame is not around.
1x flint stick with 4x replacement flints
5x sticks of 8" fatwood ( extremely flamable, use 1/2 a stick to light a fire )
10ft length of jute rope ( highly flammable when unraveled )
