CROWDFUNDING NEWS – The Hot Shot Fire Starting Survival Card From Grim Workshop is a credit card-sized high carbon steel multi-tool that features a knife and a complete fire starting kit that is designed to fit into a wallet or an Altoids tin for convenient EDC.

Why do I like it?

I like Hot Shot Fire Starting Survival Card because it has everything you need (minus tender) to start a fire in the wild. Every removable tool can be put back into the card when you’re finished using it and the included ferrocerium rod (also known as just a Ferro rod) and the magnesium bars are replaceable. You can buy additional Ferro rods and magnesium bars from www.grimworkshop.com as soon as the campaign is finished.

Where can I find more info?

The Hot Shot Fire Starting Survival Card campaign ends on 10/18/21 and they have already surpassed their funding goal of $5,000. You can pre-order a Hot Shot Fire Starting Survival Card starting at $25. After the Hot Shot Fire Starting Survival Card campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in December 2021. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

  2. I thought this card would be great for Christmas presents. Went to the website and got totally confused. It was not easy to find this card among the dozens of other cards and gadgets. I finally found it, only to see it is sold out. 🙁
