- Magnesium rod
- Flint rod
- Striker blade
- Signal mirror
- Short cord
To start a file, use the striker blade to scrape shavings from the magnesium rod into a pile near by tinder. Strike the flint rod with the striker blade to produce sparks. Aim the sparks at the magnesium shavings and they will ignite.
Works even when striker and magnesium are wet.
Great for Scouting, survival kits, bug out bags, etc.
