Got a Survivor Firestarter story that you’d like to share?
We’d love to hear about it!

“Dear Roland,

I bought 2 of your orange handled mag firestarters with the thermometer and compass. I AM EXTREMELY HAPPY!!! I bought the other bar types, and they were terrible. It took forever to get enough scrappings to ignite, and it wasn’t worth the effort.

It took me a minute, actually less, to scrape a pile of magnesium and to ignite it, what a difference than the other products. I will be purchasing from you again.

First saw your products on YouTube. I must tell you, I’ve given up on magnesium starters till I saw your sister’s demo. I believed her.

“Mr. Villareal,

Just found your website after doing some research on your company. Actually you don’t remember me, but I met you about 10 years ago in Olathe, KS during the old settler’s day celebration weekend. I’ve been a police officer for over 15 years, and at the time I was walking with my partner working gang enforcement Friday evening. Anyhow, I was so impressed with the survival Firestarter that I talked about it to my wife and the next day she and her sister bought one of your 20,000 strike wooden handle Firestarters for myself and brother –in-law. She gave it to me on my birthday a few days later to my surprise.

I’m an avid upland & waterfowl hunter and always carry your firestarter in my vest. I’ve used it to start fires while camping and hunting. I just couldn’t believe it when I saw your video and company. Anyway I just wanted to say hello and comment on such a great product. I think I will soon be purchasing another Firestarter as a gift, after the holidays.
On a side note, would it be too much to ask for a couple of decals? I would love to put your logo on my trailer & gear box.
Thanks and have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday.

“Roland,
You have the best fire starters I have seen. I have students in my safety classes use them to practice making fires the first night of class. I just went to restock my fire-starting box for my class tonight and found that someone in a previous class liked the fire starter as much, as I do, so they took it. So I just ordered a new one. I am asking that you try to get it in the mail to me as soon as possible so I can use it in my upcoming classes. Thanks for an outstanding product and I look forward to getting my new fire starter.
