The Permanent Match
We wish we had these in the Military. One of our CLUBTAC Military Vets said that back in the day Back in the day they'd use a flamethrower to set a nearby tree or bush on fire to light a cigarette if no one had a lighter. We're pretty sure that's why he was moved from Infantry to Artillery. Regardless, now you have this nifty little kick ass Permanent Matches! Instead of taking a bundle of match sticks with you when you camp, take this eternal striking Permanent Match. Made of mag alloy metal, it's able to be used in all types of weather & is waterproof & stormproof.
When we tested it, we found it to be better in the wind than actual windproof matches, and it's really neat having a personal never ending fire starter, works like magic! BESIDES a Survival Situation, this fast starting flame can be used to light a variety of things such as barbeques, propane stoves, lanterns, oil lamps, bunsen burners, blow torch, fire pit, the fireplace, bonfires, candles, or to start a fire quick with paper, dry grass, hay, weeds, bark, kindling, wood, logs, coal, charcoal, maya dust, tinder or tumbleweeds. Not to mention you can use it indoors in the kitchen for cooking because it doesn't really produce smoke, unless you light something on fire. Currently it has no lighter fluid in it, so you'll need to grab some Zippo or Ronson Lighter Fluid & folk the container with liquid fuel no more than 3/4 full. To strike, position the flat end of the flint striker at a 45' angle at the top of the steal rod on the side of the container. Apply pressure to the match and scrape downwards along the steel rod. Practice striking to learn how to create a spark with each strike.
Do not shake the container when striking. Keep the hand holding the container steady when striking to prevent fuel from spilling out. The flame lasts for about 5 seconds before it starts to burn the wick. At that point the match needs to be re-soaked in more fuel. The cotton wick will not burn as long as there is enough fuel on the wick. Re-soak the wick in more fuel if it starts to burn. Badabing BADABOOM!
