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.
