The most important element of wilderness survival preparation is redundancy in all things – if one tool fails, it’s essential to always have a backup (and maybe even a backup for your backup). And that’s exactly what makes Flint Laces so vital: they give you an alternative means of making fire when your matches get wet and your lighter won’t spark.
**Fire making with these tools is the same as using any other flint and steel system. Starting a fire with them is a skill and should be researched and practiced to proficiency. Striker knives are sharp and should be handled with caution.
Shoelaces are measured according to how many hole pairs there are on your boots. Simply count the number of hole pairs and order according to the chart below.
The diameter of the tips are 4mm at the widest point. Measure your boot holes to make sure they will fit.
