Survival Firemaking: 2 Items of Gear To Give You The Most Foolproof Fire Starting Method Yet.

Is Wetfire tinder important? Well, consider these scenarios if you want excellent fire starting gear.

SCENARIO 1 THAT REQUIRES FIREMAKING EXPERTISE
Let’s start with scenario 1. Imagine that some nefarious group has taken out the power plants in your state and the neighboring states. Generators are at a premium and so the question is this. How long will the gas last at $6.95 and climbing?

SCENARIO 2 THAT NEEDS CONFIDENT FIREMAKING
It’s a stormy night and you are driving through the mountains. Visibility is 10 yards when lightning crackles through the sky. You are constantly navigating dangerous sharp turns. Just as you reach the peak of one mountain and start down the other side, your car suddenly sputters. Its probably nothing so you keep driving, but before long your engine shuts off as you coast to the side of the road, miffed and kind of angry. In about twenty minutes, the temperature has dropped significantly and you start shivering.

In both cases, your normal, stable world with heat has dissolved in no time flat. The time has come to resort to the very basics. Fire.

THE ANSWER IS WETFIRE
In both situations, Wetfire Tinder could significantly improve things. You’ve never seen a product like this before.

And after reading this article, you’ll have a survival flame starting trick up your sleeve that won’t flame out. It will work every single time.

WHAT IS WETFIRE TINDER?
Wetfire is a cube shaped product that is packaged in small airtight bags.

You can use these tinder cubes when none of your other fire making gear is working. It’s reliable and safe to use even in the most damp conditions.

HOW DO YOU USE WETFIRE TINDER?
It’s simple. Just pop the cube out of its package. Then take your survival knife and start scraping shavings off of the Wetfire block.

Next, gather and keep some twigs and leaves close by. Light the shavings with sparks or a flame. Then start feeding the small flame with twigs.

It’s wise to keep a few blocks of Wetfire in your car or backpack at all times. This way, when you are away from your home or in the event of a national disaster or emergency, you’ll have something handy.

Next, let’s figure out how to get the shavings lit. You can use a match, a ferro rod or something else.

BLASTMATCH: WHAT IS IT?
UST’s Blastmatch is a firesteel with a spring loaded handle for ingenious one handed operation. This is what you’re going to use to light the Wetfire Tinder shavings. The BlastMatch makes a lot of sparks. When used properly it provides easy one-handed operation. If a handy, easy-to-use flint-and-steel fire starter is what you desire, I think this one will fit the bill.

THE BOTTOM LINE?
When I put the Blastmatch and Wetfire together, I’ve got an unbeatable combination. Blastmatch generates the sparks. And Wetfire turns them into a small flame. Just remember to take your knife and scrape shavings off of the cube. If you do this, the shavings will light very easily. Works every time for me.
