Gerber Bear Grylls Fire Starter –professional survival tool for your survival kit

Starting a fire can be sometimes a difficult task to do, especially when you are in the wilderness with the presence of heavy rainfalls. Many people brag about their supreme special skills of starting fire, even in the worst conditions. Do not get me wrong, it is possible to start a fire with a hand drill, or using two stones, but why should you bother yourself with that when you can start a fire in few seconds, using flint stone fire starter? It is not expensive, but it is a great survival tool. I am presenting you now Gerber Bear Grylls Fire Starter.


This fire starter usually can be found in military survival gear, but can also be a part of wilderness survival kits. 72 hour emergency kit has this fire starter, as it proved its quality during the bad weather conditions – no wonder that Bear Grylls uses this one also. This fire starter comes with ferrocerium rod and metal striker, providing you with the guaranteed production of spark, which is crucial for starting a fire.


The item weighs 1.9 ounces so you will not feel it in your emergency preparedness kit. It is also small sized – around 4 inches when it is closed, so there will be no problem if you want to put it in your pocket and take it with you.

The proof that this piece of survival kit is professional lays in the fact that the storage compartment is waterproof – meaning that you can keep the tinder dry and ready for starting a fire. The best thing about this item, besides that it starts fire without any problems, is that the item has an emergency whistle – which is integrated into a lanyard cord. It is not common to see that a fire starter has a signaling tool incorporated in. This fire starter will last you a long time due to its thick bar that creates a strong spark as long as you use it correctly. Note that you will need in the beginning several strikes to remove the black coat around the rod in order to get to the metal so you can easily and without problems create a spark and start fire. There is also a manual that comes with this fire starter – which you can use to learn few things about the survival.
