SparkBlade – A Useful Modern Accessory

An everyday carry micro-blade and fire starter – encased in a cool bullet design. Just be careful not to lose it.

The SparkBlade is a bullet-shaped multitool, with a tiny steel knife and a small flint rod inside. It comes in four different matte colors – black, orange, silver and dark grey.  You can attach it to your key chain or make into an accessory by putting it on a string to be worn as a necklace. The knife is perfect for opening boxes, letters and as the striker for the flint rod. The flint rod and knife work well together, creating a nice large spark when needed.

FiWhistle – The Not So Ultimate Safety Whistle + Firestarter

Awesome concept – not so awesome product

When I first pledged for the FiWhistle on KickStarter, I was disappointed when they did not meet their initial funding goal. I liked the idea of a firestarter whistle combo, but I think the initial color scheme and high funding goal was their ultimate crux.  Soon thereafter, they relaunched with better colors and a lower funding goal, allowing the FiWhistle to be quickly funded the second time around.
