Their advantage is that they are not affected by humidity, moreover, they last much longer than a regular lighter. We offer reliable pocket flints and firesteel type lighters and other military, especially magnesium flints. A magnesium or ferrite firestarter should not be missing from any last-ditch rescue box. It fits into the kit of every scout, hiker, and anyone else who needs to have a reliable and durable fire-starting tool for any situation.More info
In this day and age, flint may seem like an obsolete item. But making fire has always been a basic camping skill. Being able to wield a flint requires a bit of skill and practice, but the payoff is total reliability. Although today's gas or gasoline lighters make our jobs much easier, they are far more susceptible to weather conditions. When you accidentally take a dip in the river or get soaked to the bone with all your equipment in a storm and need to warm up and dry off, good flint won't let you down.
