Scraper, Ferro Rod, Tinder, and Paracord all in one necklace.
A complete fire starting necklace with all the tools to get a flame! While your friends might complement the look of your new necklace, they'll have no idea that what is actually hanging from your neck is a complete fire starting kit. An essential piece of gear to have while you're exploring the outdoors, but it's likely to become an integral part of your everyday carry ensemble. Wear it in the shower, wear it to sleep, wear on a summit attempt, or diving a reef. Whenever and wherever, wear this line around your neck, so your neck is never on the line!
Hello guys !
I decided to buy another one after having lost my previous ***** Firecord necklace...but I ordered two of them finally, because I wanted to cut one of them, test how works that sort of firecord that I've never used before. In France I'm used to another cord made with a hemp strand inside. After many attempts in the same conditions and with the same tools (ceramic+little firesteel) of the necklace, I was unable to make burn the red firecord I tried with my usual firecord and I started two fires. So I built a new necklace with the ***** tools and my usual cord (I added on each side of the back of the necklace two ranger bands rolled on the cord, and enfolled the ranger bands into knots of paracord 275 to avoid any skin contact with the rubber -lol-).
I'm disappointed since the article was just out of the box.
Despite I like ***** stuff, I rate 1 star...why ?
It's a necklace, you wear it on yourself all the time just in case...this article is to be considered as a last chance fire tool. If you buy the firecord version and not the leather one, it's because you prefer to already carry the tinder on yourself, not hoping to find it into the Wild. So 5 stars for the leather version (since the ceramic and the stone are good tools, specially for their small size), 1 for the firecord version. Hope this comment will be usefull, that's its only purpose.

The fire steel and ceramic scraper works without any issues. I've used it to start several fires using cotton balls and petroleum jelly. The problem I ran into was when I wore it to Disney. The paracord itself swelled up from excessive sweat preventing the fire steel from sliding to the other end to use with the scraper. Even after drying the neckless the paracord stayed in a swelled up form. If I ever need to use the fire steel again, I will need to cut it out.
Response from *****: Hey Gavin, thanks for the feedback on the necklace. We're happy to get you a replacement so that you can continue to wear the necklace. Just reach out to us via email and we'll get you one.
