  1. Whoa boy…..

    these guys just searched every Prepper channel and dumped all their discontinued models on them……

    ~_~

  2. I read Jack London’s “To Build a Fire” when I was a boy. Ever since I have never had less than two ways
    to make fire on my person at any time. I have a mini bic in my pants pocket, I have another in the sheath of my Leatherman Wave, in which I also have a Doane bar. I have a ferro rod and striker on my keychain, another on a necklace, another in the lacing of my boot. I have a UCO match safe with UCO matches in my EDC pack/bag. I have a complete fire kit in that too. I have waxed jute, waxed cotton balls, Vic’s Vapor Rub soaked cotton balls, and a tinder bag that I put natural tinder in as I find it. I collect tinder in town when I take a walk. I scored some fatwood today. A guy was cutting down a dead pine tree in his yard and I asked if I could have the stump.

    1. ❤ Leatherman Wave ❤

      Hey, know any place that still has the OLD version?

      i miss the model they sold in the 2000’s with the different scissors and still had the lanyard hole.

      ):

  3. pretty cool boss lighters have a place but not in the outdoors   I have like 5 or 6 ferro rods in my pack  uco matches   and a magnifying glass  that sets anything on fire in like a minute   I always use 100% cotton at the base of the feather sticks I make  some sparks   and add all the feather sticks  and fire real fast   I like the nano spark   have a good day

  4. Awesome thorough review. I couldn’t agree more how fire is the number one item you want in a survival situation especially in cold weather climates/areas. Thanks Tim!

  5. Good stuff but so expensive for what it is. You can get two ferro rod bracelets from Amazon for $5 now. The nano striker is like $25. Crazy. Btw, good electrical tape will seal the fat wood can water tight.

    1. Good call.
      As much as amazon SUCKS, all my favorite stuff is the weird/obscure stuff that they hardly sell so they usually end up reducing the price.

      😎

  6. Excellent Showcase! ExoTac makes some very high quality and reliable products. Also, loved the little mini kit you created with the TinderTin. Very cool.

    1. Actually None! But I thank you for assuming that I in some way have been swayed in my opinions by “free swag” that I’ve never received.
