Fire Making

Friday Gear Report: 5/11/12

Butane lighters–such as the Windmill Stormproof Butane Lighter–are great. But like 1911s, there is the intrinsically appealing nostalgia of good ole flint and wick lighter.

Review: Titanium Emberlit Stove

Back in September we introduced the Emberlit Stove. Since then I have been playing with it, testing it, and even carrying it around in my EDC. The conclusion, simply put, this is a great little stove.

As you may remember, there is a great story attached to this product. It’s a story of ingenuity and triumph. […]

Friday Gear Report: 12/9/11

I’ve bought some foolish things; I fully admit to it. Usually their beauty was matched by exceptional function. But sometimes, you just want something because it is pretty even thought a much less costly version exists that will perform just the same (we are still talking about gear here right?)

Windmill Stormproof Butane Lighter Review

The Windmill Stormproof Butane lighter has proven itself through numerous camping trips, river rapids, general abuse, and a year in a BOB. I’d say it stood up very well.

Fire is one of the most basic of survival tools. Based on archaeological evidence, it is presumed that mankind has been controlling fire all the way back […]

Bow Drill Fire Making

Bow Drill Fire Making is among the most common of primitive fire making skills. Once mastered, it provides an endless supply of one of the basic necessities of life. Without fire you cannot cook food (ok baring you have a bushel of limes lying around in lieu of fire), warm yourself, and in some cases keep predators at bay. It is also one of the single biggest moral boosters whether you are camping or trying to survive in an unfortunate situation. […]
