We know you probably have hundreds of lighters around the house, the disposable kind that you can use and toss once the butane has gone to meet its maker. There is nothing finer when you need a quick fire start!
But, eventually, they do not work as well as they once did. Some do not work at all if they are the really cheap type. Believe us, we know!
However, you will always have your striker and any outdoorsman or prepper who doesn’t have a striker or two should really think about getting this important survival item. Why? If those lighters ever do go away, for whatever reason, you will still be able to make a fire! Your striker creates the perfect spark to get that fire going and you can find them in any outdoor shop.
Now, you may be asking yourself what is the perfect tinder for that spark, and we are here to tell you there are options!
If you’ve already used a striker you know what works best for you but our host over on the next page has some ideas he would like to share so go over to watch and listen!
