Fire Starting Supplies


Fire is a key element to surviving in the wild. From keeping warm to cooking your meals to signaling for help, you should be prepared and have the supplies to start a fire if necessary.  LT's Knives and Machetes offers a variety of fire starting equipment and supplies you can choose from to carry on your excursions into the wilderness.

Choose from flints, tender, solar fire starting supplies and the old bow and spindle fire starting equipment or a fire piston kit so you are prepared for a night in the wild.
Char Cloth for Fire Starting  Char Cloth and Magnifying Glass
Char Cloth
$10.00 plus S & H
Solar Fire Starting Kit

Char cloth is probably my favorite tender. It lights easily and you have plenty of time to use it to bring the rest of your tender to blaze.

I'm not sure of when this method came about but never the less, it makes a neat way to make fire with hardly anything.

Char cloth is able to be used with several other fire starting devices.

Fire Piston Kit
$80.00 plus S & H
Bow & Spindle Fire Making Kit
$30.00 plus S & H

This fire piston kit is made out of oak. It has a metal barrel and comes with a metal piston unlike some others on the market.

Comes in a real leather pouch with tie strings.

The bow and spindle is probably the most popular way of starting a fire by primitive means but trust me, it is also one of the hardest ways to start a fire.

With some practice, the bow and spindle method can be a very effective way to start a fire.
