components of the bracelet itself. I've seen a couple of versions of paracord fire starter bracelets. One with a specific type of buckle that has a built in ferro rod and striker. You can see my review of that buckle here. Also, I've just recently done a tutorial on a fire starter bracelet that uses a drilled ferro rod as a toggle with a washer to keep the bracelet closed. This style was actually done by a company called The Friendly Swede and more recently made popular by a kickstarter campaign by a company called Bomberco (Which generated over $477,462 in funding by the way!). By the way, Bomberco did great with a really flashy trailer, but you can clearly tell they sprayed some sort of accelerant on their kindling to get it started easily, just sayin'. The Friendly Swede's version uses a specific type of washer that has teeth on it to act as a striker. The Bomberco version, like my tutorial version only uses a washer to be the striker. That being said I think these fire starter bracelets are very cool and that they do serve a purpose, but I would think that these bracelets are really a last ditch/resort for creating fire. I mean to be honest, isn't using a lighter or matches the easiest way to create a fire? Perhaps there are some purists out there that enjoy the primal act of starting a fire in a more difficult way, but I would think that
efficiently. But anyways, just minor detail. Well, whether you're into survival or just a city dweller like me, you can't deny that fire starter bracelets are very cool and definitely something you might consider having if you go camping a lot or if you're just an outdoors kinda person. But of course, you experts out there probably have dedicated ways of making fire that are much easier. Either way, I hope that you enjoyed my tutorial video and this post! -WOE
