FIRE STARTING TOOL

 

(2) 10″x7″ Fresnel Lens for less than $5.00!!

 Less than $5.00 including shipping!!

Starting a fire is one of the most rudimentary basic activities that a survivalist/prepper must be able to do. Whether for cooking, warmth, light, or protection – building a fire is critically important.

One method of fire starting I have utilized over the past year is the fresnel lens. Basically a large magnifying glass – the fresnel lens can gather the suns light and focus it to a very small and intense spot  - generating tremendous heat. No doubt many of you as kids used a magnifying glass to catch some leaves on fire – this lens works much the same way.

Super flexible and durable

 

Why do I like the fresnel lens so much? Here are a few reasons:

  • cheap
  • durable and flexible
  • lightweight
  • simple to use
I have a couple of these in packs just shoved in behind something. So light and easy to carry. Of course – you need sun in order to use them.

 

Pick up a couple!
