Magnesium bar firestarters like the MagBar are a staple in many military survival kits. Fire is a multipurpose survival tool. It not only provides heat for cooking and purifying water, it offers comfort and security on a dark, moonless night. Fire can be used to warm the earth beneath your bed or to harden the end of a stick to make a spear or a digging tool. There is practically no end to the uses for fire to the survivor. But making a fire when so much is at stake can be daunting. That’s why it’s important to have a safe and reliable way to make fire in your survival gear. There are many devices and techniques, but the MagBar is one of the easiest.
Simply shave off a pile of shavings from the bar about the size of a US quarter onto some flammable tinder. Strike a spark with the attached striker onto the shavings and they will burn bright and hot in any weather conditions. Add kindling and build your fire.
