Wazoo Survival Gear Bushcraft Fire Starter Leather Necklace
One of the most important gear items every prepper needs is a reliable fire ignition tool.
Having the ability to create fire in a survival situation is a top priority.
Fire provides heat, light, the ability to boil water for safe drinking and the means to cook food. It’s also a great way to signal for help in an emergency.
We’ve talked a lot about different fire-starting tools and methods and their various application depending on your environment and circumstances.
And smart preppers understand that having several fire-starting tools on-hand helps you cover all the bases in case one fails to work.
The trouble is, most fire kits wind up somewhere in a pocket in our bags and they can take up a lot of room, depending on the type of tool.
Ferro rods for example, come in all different sizes and they can be a pain in the butt to deal with if you need to fish around in your bag in the dark to find it.
Today, I want to talk to you about something I use called a, ‘Fire Starter Necklace’ made by Wazoo Survival Gear.
Unlike many survival companies, Wazoo takes a minimalist approach to survival gear by specializing in ‘wearable’ survival tools.
The Fire Necklace consists of a tiny ferrocerium rod and ceramic striker attached to a leather lanyard which can be worn around your neck.
The Fire Necklace produces a super brilliant spark that can be used to ignite a fire, even when your tinder bundle is damp, so it’s a great all-weather fire-starting tool.
The leather is free of Lead, PCP, Mercury, Formaldehyde, Chromium VI, Cadmium and other carcinogenic/hazardous chemicals.
And it features a Double Fisherman’s knot so you can adjust the length of the loop and slip it over your head comfortably.
It’s lightweight, and as far as I am aware it’s also TSA-approved. I’ve flown while wearing it several times and never had a problem with airport security.
The thing I love most about the Fire Necklace is that from the minute you put it on, it becomes a part of your everyday way of life.
Having a few survival tools that you can slip in your pocket or wear on your arm or around your neck is just plain smart in my opinion.
You don’t even realize you have it on your person until you need it, but it’s always there when you do.
On another note: It looks great hanging around your neck too!
