cpdragage: cant u run out of the magnasim or watever?
rmsparklechick: yes, i agree, time for survival man Tom to make more videos!
CampingSurvival: Good point. Again, my first video. Had no idea about how it would turn out
and how it would look etc. Maybe burdock for the next one.
CampingSurvival: Yes. The fire starter will eventually wear away. When you scrape it and it
makes sparks, you're actually scraping away peices of it. It is made of
metals and while it will eventually wear away, it will last a very long
CampingSurvival: Thanks for checking it out. Please let me know your experience. I've been
working with fire starters for a while, and the only way this could
improved would be to make the rod larger. Other than that, there is nothing
wrong with it. To say it's the worst doesn't make sense to me. If you know
how to use a sparking rod to start a fire, you'll know this one is better
than the rest because it has a high concentration of magnesium that keeps
burning super hot after you strike it.
CampingSurvival: Good question. It depends on so many variables. Some would say " the best
(whatever it is gun, fire starter etc) is the one you have on you".
Firesteel is smaller and easier to carry in the pocket/keychain all the
time. It's harder to spark the aurora than the firesteel, but the aurora
produces smoldering sparks. Whereas the firesteel sparks go out quicker.
CampingSurvival: Sounds good. Thanks, Tom
CampingSurvival: Thanks much for the feedback. I tried posting a response several times and
failed. I think because I put a link or the name of a product in my
response. I am hoping to make another video about tinders and comparing
products to help make fire starting easier. Thanks again, Tom
CampingSurvival: I know. It was my first vid. We were rushed for time and even though my
buddy is a perfectionist and that is a good thing, he came to Syracuse from
Buffalo and got there at night. We were both whipped and by this take, I
said the heck with it, it looks good. So, I'm happy wiht my first vid, but
am trying to get to making some more. Thanks for the comment, Tom
BaconBeast11: Sure, Ill tell you next time im gonna order some stuff which I will do
originalskin: Having used other fire starters in the past, I would have to say that this
Aurora magnesium fire starter is the best. I highly recommend that everyone
keep one of these in their emergency kit!
BaconBeast11: make more reviews
CampingSurvival: Yea, you're right. My first attempt. Next time will be better. It is a
great fire starter though.
CampingSurvival: $20.00 right on our home page CampingSurvival. Thanks, Tom
Robert Nich: What would you consider the better, Swedish firesteel, or this Magnesium
rmsparklechick: awesome video and product!
Josh Murdock: The video is fine. I don't think you were "trying too hard", your just
showing your merch. Good stuff. (Although next time, try and zoom into the
product itself a bit more)
CampingSurvival: That'll be fun. A wet log as tinder. Heck, why not soak it with fire
retardant to mess with them?
cpdragage: o ok thx
CampingSurvival: Arthur. Seriously, if you have an opinion of our fire starter, please fill
us in. I obviously love this fire starter, but if you see it from a
different perspective, please let me know. This thing is constantly being
improved. Every batch has a little tweaking to it. Feedback helps us a lot.
cpdragage: awesomeness im gonna get one
DizzySteps2U: That Survivorman guy on the Discovery Channel would really benefit from
this! The firestarter he's used is very tedious! Cool product!
doubleganger2: couldn't you have used a harder tinder? (fish in a barrel) Dry cotton is
just too easy and doesn't show that your tool is better than any other
multitoollover: cool but i think you are trying to hard to sell it
jrash2000: I can't get over how well designed this is, it's the perfect all-around
fire starter. I keep it in my camping pack with an Altoids tin of greased
cotton balls, works every time.
dwizzlefilms: great product
CampingSurvival: Yes, there is a wide variety of prices on fire starters. We sell some that
are a buck or two. There are thousands of these in use by the military and
they find the o-ring very important such as the Navy Seals.
CampingSurvival: What do you mean?
phillipcurl3: @dayingyang0 What if your near the ocean with this in your pocket and fall
Buds131: I tried to shoot some good video using the Aurora during our recent
survival training in Virginia but the damn thing worked so well it made the
video seem uneventful. Next course, I might give the trainees a wet log as
tinder. Hopefully, it'll take them a little longer to get it lit...
cpdragage: yay i just got one its awesome
CampingSurvival: A lot of people that carry cotton balls keep them in little containers such
as those little black film canisters. Also, most people put Vaseline with
the cotton balls. When you add Vaseline and work it through the cotton
balls, it not only makes it pretty waterproof, but also makes it burn
hotter and longer. Try it. It's also a fun project for kids such as scouts
to make their own tinder.
CyberKlown28: I just picked one up at the local Army and Navy store. I must say it is
built very well,worth every cent. I noticed that you have to scrape down a
little for it to work good. After I scraped a layer off it works like a
charm. Also this is very light weight for something built so good. Pick one
up you will be pleased.
nickalex27: not the aurora magnesium fire starter? how many times did he wana say it?
CampingSurvival: Thanks for the feedback. Have you tried it yet? Thanks, Tom
BaconBeast11: Nope, but I have bought a couple of things from your site.
CampingSurvival: I agree. My first vid.
BushcraftOnFire: Nice job Tom.. This is a fine looking firestarter.. I would love to have a
few of them.. It's important to have gear that you KNOW will perform on
demand. I have used some firestarters that you couldn't depend on.. they
were more hit & miss. Bad thing in a crisis situation!
CampingSurvival: Great! Thanks. I too would like more feedback here. Let me know on your
next order and I'll give you a discount if you want to try one. Thanks, Tom
meyer7777: It matters not if you're the average camper, experienced hiker, or survival
specialist. If you've ever tried starting a fire with a regular piece of
flint and a block of magnesium in the morning dew, or during a rain shower,
you know what it's like. Most times you only need the flint to burn just a
couple of seconds longer to get the fire going. One can clearly see that
this "Aurora" Magnesium Fire Starter is a must have.
Jacob Rymer-Jenkins: thanks i thought this was a waste of my time
itsArthurKomar: This item is the worst fire starter i ever used
