A G.O.O.D. Fire Lighting Kit

Metal Match & Pouch
Here is a G.O.O.D. Fire Lighting Kit, the Metal Match. Available from many sources, I got mine from Amazon.ca, because it shipped for free.

The Metal Match was quite affordable, less than $30 for 20 units.The pouch on the other hand, i had to build myself. If you want to learn how to build a pouch like this visit:


You can find more pictures and plans for making a pouch for the Metal Match.

So, why is the Metal Match a good choice? First off it is compact. Second it is very light-weight. And, third, it will light many, many fires before it has been used up. The cost is also a valid reason for ordering a few for each BOB and/or BOV.

A small bottle of kerosene or lighter fluid will be needed to make the Metal Match fully functional, as they cannot be shipped with a combustible fluid inside.

This can be used as part of your larger fire making kit or as a stand alone mini kit.

Keep the home fires burning,

V.A.M.
