Apply FULL force and RAPID movement to slide the striker washer across the fire starter rod. Be patient. With a little practice sparks will come flying.

When I was asked to review this product by The Friendly Swede I was so pleased as I am a gal who loves the great outdoors here in rural Scotland and one of my passions is outdoor kit of any kind. I love Paracord bracelets because they are a fantastic way to carry inconspicuously (and often decoratively) a healthy quantity of what could, ultimately be a lifesaving item - Paracord.

I first learnt about the many uses of Paracord when I met my hubby who back then was in the Armed Forces and he taught me about its many uses and how I should always have some with me. I've always followed that advice and in several situations I have found myself in over the years, its proved invaluable. Whoever invented Paracord bracelets is a genius!

What makes this Paracord bracelet stand out and made me want it is the addition of the firestarter - comprising of a length of jute that is woven into the Paracord and it also has a flint toggle. You will always be able to start a fire with this on your wrist. Now in my opinion, its way too big for me, I am a slim lass with slim wrists and even adjusting it, it was too big and too chunky for me, so I reluctantly gave it to my husband and he was very, very pleased with it. It looked good on his wrist, was easy to fasten and felt comfortable to wear. The magic happens though when you take it out into the wilds to play with!

A few days ago we packed up some backpacks and headed out into a nearby forest with our Kelly Kettle and this bracelet. Now I normally use Kapok as the tinder to start my fire but on this occasion we decided to use the jute that was a part of the Paracord bracelet my hubby was wearing. It was easy to remove from the bracelet by snapping the glue spot and un-weaving the jute carefully from the bracelet.

When Da Vinci wrote "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" he could well have been describing this bracelet. Tight weave, clean finish and craftsmanship combine with the elegant simplicity of the classic firesteel and striker.
The utility of 17.5 feet of 500lb paracord is obvious, but the added bonus of the striker also being a Sharp Eye Knife is simply inspired design.
Without the need for dis-assembly the firesteel/ striker function provides ample hot sparks and the thumb through loop behind the firesteel method gives a stable, supported and directed action. With the firesteel as a toggle through the eye of the knife, the loop folds back over the eye minimising snagging holding the bracelet firm against the wrist. Simple, effective and useful.

An undocumented side benefit of the chunky design came with the unscheduled release of spanner from rocker cover bolt. The resultant momentum propelled my wrist into the air cleaner cover. Not a problem for my beefy swede and my wife was spared the string of expletives, betadine stains and protracted mewling convalescence.
A Friendly Swede is a Friend indeed.

Certainly one for males (or females that have slightly bigger wrists than mine).

This really is a man's camping or adventure bit of kit. Different colours are available or too, so one to suit most.

Chunky, beefy but looks the part.....but also does something too. It is a lighter, easy to use once you get the hang if it. (Did take me a few tries and son looked on in bewilderment, well myself and fires, useless at lighting them. This I can light them with now. Is that a problem I now wonder, husband will probably be hiding it from now on.

Alright son was a bit miffed that it did not fit him, as only having small wrists even after adjusting, husband on the other hand pleased (now he can live out his Rambo role, well it is the camouflage coloured one).

Really is easy just rub the barrel shaped part on the ring and after quite a few goes it worked.

Alway useful to know that the Paracord is there if needed for tying things together. Plus not forgetting that if you have to undo it, it will be replaced by The Friendly Swede. Hopefully if that happens then you will be around to tell the tale, and not dangling in mid air. With me more a case of being chased by pigs and that will be the reason for undoing it.

Delivery was so quick and well packed and with a lifetime guarantee, well you really have nothing to loose buying it.

Colour Name: Black with jute lineSize: 11-inch Verified Purchase
This is exactly how the listing on Amazon describes it: an 'extra beefy' bracelet made of black paracord, complete with a metal ring and a small rod of magnesium that can be scraped with the ring to generate shavings that can then be lit to start a fire. The bracelet also has a string of jute interwoven on the outside of the bracelet that could be extracted to provide some kindling for a fire or small pile of burning material to fit inside a Kelly Kettle or stove, for example. The intention is that this should be used in situations where other sources of fire making are unavailable, and/or where the16 feet of paracord is needed after the bracelet is unravelled is some sort of emergency or critical situation. I have not had occasion to use it in either way yet, but will be useful when I am fly fishing in more remote areas such as the hill lochs of Scotland as I can simply put the bracelet on my wrist as I leave home and not find I have forgotten to pack fire-making equipment. I will probably use it to start my Kelly Kettle.
Having worn the bracelet for a few fishing trips now I think a slighter thinner paracord making a slightly thinner and more flexible bracelet would be better for me, so I may well look at adding other Friendly Swede bracelets. I'm also tempted to get the Friendly Swede DIY kit they sell to make up my own bracelets etc. because the price is very reasonable and it would be fun to tailor the bracelets and/or key fobs to my own preferences and designs.
All in all a clever idea, making a very useful bit of outdoor equipment at a very reasonable price. Lots of other versions from the Friendly Swede too. Highly recommended!
