Story

The Fire Kit was designed for Best Made by SOLKOA, the folks who make survival kits for United States Special Forces. With twelve unique ways to spark a flame, this is not a tinder box to keep by the fireplace - this is a contingency plan. The kit is packaged in SOLKOA's famous SUMA case, machined from solid 6061 aluminum and given an anodized finish. It is strong enough to dig with, can be used to boil water once you get a fire going, and has a gasket to protect its contents. The kit contains four tinder options: waxed jute, steel wool, waxed cotton, and SOLKOA's remarkable Fastfire tinder. See our "Notes" for a full description of tinder usage. Designed to be as weight- and space-efficient as physically possible, the SOLKOA Fire Kit is worth its weight in gold a thousand times over when it comes to a true survival situation.

Notes
  • Fastfire tinder will light easily under sparks (even when wet), creating a 1,300 degree, wind-resistant flame. A full cube will burn vigorously for 10-12 minutes, or the cube can be broken into 8 pieces that will burn for 2-3 minutes each in an extended survival situation.
  • The Fastfire rod is a ferrocerium striking rod with a hacksaw blade attached, which will create a high-energy shower of sparks with little effort. Ten stormproof matches are a reliable backup, and a 25+ hr. beeswax candle functions as a steady flame or signal throughout the night.
  • Steel wool can be used to short a battery (flashlight will do), which will generate enough heat to ignite the cotton it is packed with.
  • The sheet of relfective foil is used as a wind shield, cooking aid, or dry base for starting tinder
