Ships from USA. People always ask me what is the fastest, easiest way to start a fire in the wilderness, when it is cold, wet and the wind in blowing. I always reply magnesium chips and windproof matches are the fastest way. Magnesium burns white hot at 4000 degrees, it will light damp tinder, the matches will burn no matter how hard the wind is blowing. I put this kit together a number of years ago for my friends, soon I was making them for their friends. This method of starting a fire under wet and windy condition is fool proof. First gather some kindling, make sure to use small pieces. Take some of the magnesium chips out of the bag, a 2 in wide circle about 1 in high will do. Put your kindling on top of the pile of magnesium. Now light the windproof match and put it into the center of your pile of magnesium, as the kindling burns add tinder to your fire. Kit fits into your pocket weight is 2.5 oz. The tin is 3 5/16in x 2 9/16in x 15/16in. Matches are 2in long. Bag of magnesium is 3in x 4in. Everything fits into tin. Will burn super hot even in wet conditions super. Light with ferro rod, wooden matches or torch lighter. Magnesium can oxidized over time turning the material a darker color, this does not effect the efficiency. Safe to carry in your backpack, survival kit or car. Thanks for looking. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. See you on the trail. Steve Kaeser
