Being able to start a fire with your bare hands is a legitimately cool skill, but it can take a lot of time and effort. For when you don’t have anything to spare, the Pull Start Fire is a perfect go to for setting up camp.
With this on hand, you can get a toasty fire going with just a simple tug of a string. All you have to do is set up your dry logs, tie this iPhone sized fire starter down to a log with its green string, then remove the red one at a safe distance. When you pull on the string (for safety – it requires between a 2.6 and 4 pounds of tensile force), a friction-ignition system lights up the eco-friendly flammable powder that then burns up the contents of the fire starter, wax, and sawdust casing itself. Your pile of wood will almost immediately catch on fire as the little box heats up to 1,500 degrees. Whether you are a fire-starting purist who wants a backup, or someone looking to get the chore done in the fastest way possible – this is a great tool. You can get a pack of 6 for $25. [Purchase]
