ITS Engraved Mora FireKnife, Jute Paracord and Fire Starting Tinder New to ITS Store

By Bryan Black

FireKnife 01

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.

Mora FireKnife

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!

FireKnife 06

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 to exceed the Mil-Spec 550+ lb. tensile strength and 7-strand kermantle construction, with one difference. We’ve replaced the 7th inner strand with 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.

Light My FIre Products 01

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.

Light My FIre Products 03

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.

Light My FIre Products 05

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.

    just recieved my jute paracord, love it! opened it up to try out the jute(having never worked with it) worked like charm with my magnesium fire starter. you guys have some great stuff. vacuum sealed packaging. thanks for the its sticker! looking forward to purchasing the mora knife and more paracord, could use some colors though.

    • jms2007 Thanks for the great feedback! I’m glad you had success with the Jute right away, we’re looking to add more colors of the Jute Paracord soon and appreciate your support!

  • JoshuaStephens

    Bryan, does the jute cause any problems when trying to fuse the paracord for traditional cordage applications? That was the only hindrance that came to mind while reading this article. Otherwise this sounds like an excellent improvement to a piece of fairly common equipment.

    • JoshuaStephens Joshua, thanks for the kind words. You can do one of two things, leave a small bit of the Jute sticking out at the end and fuse the sheath around it, or trim it a bit shorter and bind the Jute strand in while fusing. Both methods work.

      Hope that helps!

    I LOVE the idea of using jute in paracord!
    I have been making some paracord things at http://paracordcentral.org/ . I wish I knew about this cord when I was making my survival items :).
