In the ITS Store today, we’re launching a new ITS Engraved Swedish Mora FireKnife, Jute 550 Paracord and Fire Starting Tinder. These represent some of the very best products we could source for bushcraft skills and we’re proud to offer them in our store.
These Swedish made Mora FireKnives feature an ultra-sharp and dependable Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel blade, TPE Rubber Handle and integrated Swedish Magnesium Alloy FireSteel. This all-in-one knife is as good as it gets for fire starting applications.
Rather than needing to carry a separate ferro (ferrocerium) rod and steel striker, this combo has it all integrated. The butt of the knife houses a twist-out ferro rod and the excellent edge characteristics on the spine of the stainless steel blade, act as the striker. Mora knives are world-renowned for their superior edge holding abilities, light weight nature and as an all around workhorse of a knife. Whether it’s gutting a fish, splitting kindling, lighting a campfire or camp stove, this knife can do it all!
Each FireKnife is laser engraved with the ITS Logo and are available in Grey/Black or Orange/Grey colorways with color-matched sheaths.
ITS 550 Jute Paracord
We’ve taken the proven concept of Type III Paracord and put a multi-purpose twist on it. Our Jute Paracord is built with the same Mil-Spec 550+ lb. tensile strength and 7-strand kermantle construction, with one difference. We’ve added an eighth inner strand of Jute natural fiber for fire starting purposes.
By simply removing the inner strands of the paracord, you can access the Jute core and roll it into a fire starting tinder bundle. It’s quick to spark with a fero rod, like the one included in our ITS Engraved Swedish Mora FireKnife.
Light My Fire Tinder Products
We’re all huge believers, here at ITS, in the practical usage of fatwood to aid in fire starting. These products from Light My Fire are all different variations of mother nature’s best fire starter.
Fatwood, or often referred to as heartwood from a pine tree, is a rich resin-impregnated wood that can be found in stumps of old pine trees. When a pine tree dies, the bark and sapwood fall away, leaving behind the heartwood in its trunk. This heartwood can be collected easily and is naturally water and rot resistant. Even in wet conditions it can spark up quickly from shavings.
TinderSticks are a package of individual fatwood sticks that are perfect for either turning into shavings with a knife or using as kindling by themselves. A little goes a long way when it comes to fatwood, with an 80% resin content, they’ll burn long and hot.
Tinder-on-a-Rope is an ultra-concentrated block of fatwood that easily allows you to scrape it into a fine “dust” to aid in fire starting, or turn into shavings with a knife.
TinderDust is a small 1oz. plastic tin of pre-shaved fatwood for immediate usage to spark up a fire. It’s made from pine stumps with up to 80% resin content.
