Replacement Fire Starter for Bear Grylls Survival Tool Pack
I too lost the flint to my knife, and cant find a replacement flint for that knife anywhere. Seems gerber should replace it. The flint on the knife is poorly placed. Like "otdoorsmen" said , its upside down and mine fell out. Its a feature of the knife that should be fixed. im sure we're not the only ones that have lost that flint.
I use it on anything!!
Used my BG fixed knife and the included ferrocerium tool to start a fire on the top of a 4700ft mountain when it was snowing and wind blowing hard. I scraped off the wet bark and made kindling, and then sparked a vaseline cotton ball. Fire. It worked well, only 2 strikes in the wet wind. I just came to the site to buy some backups. I do recommend it.
I used this starter and a Gerber knife to teach my boy how to make a no-match fire. Successful on the first attempt. I was surprised, but of course acted like I knew I was going to be successful. Now I am the superhero of survival in my son's eyes.
this flint worked well for me and the best part is that it fits perfectly in the LMF II sheath where the sharpener is located, used the top velcro strap to secure it.
failed to actually ignite a moderately dry pine needle bed. I had a flame for an instant. I would stick to the old coghlans flint and magnesium fire starter. I thought I could ditch the old fire starter but I actually broke the Gerber BR survival fire starter. I lost faith in this product after failing to start a fire and I broke my the ferrocium into two useless stumps. Lucky I was just testing my equipment before ever needing it. I think the company should re-evaluate this product, I was disappointed. Knife itself is all around good.
its a goet knife thingy but its boat a knife
this flint is not for the knife. that one locks into the sheath
i love the knife and everything about it except where tis firestarter is located. its upside down so it fell out , i lost it and need a replacement:(
