EDC Fire Kit
The EDC Fire Kit is a compact, lightweight and highly effective fire lighting kit, designed to allow its user to quickly and reliably get a fire started regardless of weather conditions.
For fire ignition, the EDC Fire Kit combines a ferrocerium (fire steel) rod with a durable striker, making ignition a quick and hassle-free process.
The kit comes with its own supply of water-resistant tinder, in the form of waxed jute Tinder Sticks, which will readily catch a spark and ignite, and can be used as a lighting splint that will burn for three minutes. A magnesium rod is also included; using the striker this can be scraped into a powder and added to your tinder bundle to further boost its ignitability in adverse weather conditions.
The EDC Fire Kit also doubles as dry storage for matches and gathered tinder, and incorporates two match-striking surfaces for safety matches and strike-anywhere matches, offering an additional firelighting method.
The kit comes with a detailed instruction sheet, with explanations for starting and building fires, the survival uses of fire, and the additional functions of the kit.

One potential disadvantage, it might be difficult to remove the split pin to withdraw the steel if you had very cold fingers, but thats the only drawback.
Good purchase. I think a couple more will be on order. I also ordered the refill pack with this purchase. Even got a free chunk of kendal mint cake with it!
Had a trial run and was easily able to ignite the tinder sticks that burnt hot enough to set a small fire base alight. Glow sticks might be of some use in the dark if you had no torch. The free kendal mint cake was a nice touch and quickly eaten while examining the kit. Recommend
The striker is well made, the rod neatly milled and fits perfectly in the case. Two quick and gentle rubs to clear the coating and I was getting a good fat spark every time. The included tinder sticks are good, easy to light, and burn hot enough to easily set a small dry twig alight almost instantly. Certainly better than the usual waxed drier lint tinder I use normally!
The magnesium powder vial for inclement conditions included is a brilliant idea and means one less small item to get lost in the crannies of my pockets. The mini glow stick is an interesting addition. I can report they glow quite well as one was immediately seized for a Lego sized light-sabre.
All in all, an excellent bit of kit and one which I will be recommending far and wide.
i would highley recomend this little kit as an addition to a larger fire starting kit as having other supplys like char cloth or fatwood and matches and a lighter is pretty standard
Everything you need in one small convenient package with comprehensive instructions.
It was posted out and received quickly.
Refills are available too (I ordered a refill at the same time).
Even got a complimentary piece of Chocolate Kendal Mint Cake, which was a nice touch.
Nice piece of kit, great service.
Have already bought another one for my son, and received it as quickly as the first one.
