Rattlerstrap Flint Laces

Not to be pessimistic, but head off in the wilderness often enough and one day something’s bound to go wrong. And when it comes to making fire, whether you lost your lighter or wet your matches, Rattlerstrap’s Flint Laces have your back. These paracord laces look and feel like rugged, run-of-the-mill boot laces, until you desperately need some warmth or a flame to cook over. Underneath each aglet lies a 1-inch ferro rod, more than enough to produce some serious sparks using a steel edge, i.e. a knife.
