Sooo, if we lack any new participants, do we bounce it back to Zelph for round two? :lol: The anticipation is mounting. It's like Christmas morning and I am seven years old all over again. :lol: :DP: :DP:

JBRanger, One rod is flint you strike. I use a carbon-steel scraper blade made for a scraper. Other people use a knife.

Two rods are magnesium, you scrape shavings into a little pile to help ignite tinder.

It is on a plumber's chain, like "dog tags" and a survivalist-guy type adds other small stuff on the chain, like a P-38 military issue can opener, and whatever, but the flint and magnesium rods are the essential part of the flint-and-steel firestarter kit.

Now, if you are totally proficient, strike a spark that will ignite alcohol in a cat stove!

Then, again, maybe someone else will like it. I couldn't do it.

The Heiniken cans around here are jumbo, like a keg. I found an "inside-out" Super Stove and a Heiniken can, not sold around here. I know I was delighted: I put up photos on the My Latest "stove kit" thread.

Zelph, It is okay to send Heet?

I think we should go around again. I have acquired more stuff to add.

I am finding out, I pay for something and I like only one component. The rest is extra.

i know all about that kid a christmas thing. ;) been wandering about all day looking at stuff to add to the box.

it would be a good idea not to include any flammables in the box. they'd never clear customs.

It is in my possession. Should go out today or tomorrow at the latest.

I thought it was a fire starter, but heck if I couldn't get the thing to work right. Oh well.... passing on it. I took what I wanted and added some stuff. Almost need a bigger box.
