Sanborn Firestarter Kit

One of the most important things you can have on a camping trip is a way to start a fire. The Sanborn Firestarter Kit ($16) fits the bill nicely, and includes the following:

  • Eight cedar firestarters
  • A match safe
  • Some cedar kindling
  • A small burlap bag to hold everything

Sanborn is a company that makes great canoe paddles, and the scrap cedar salvaged from that process is what goes into the firestarter kit. I love when companies find great ways to utilize their byproducts like this.
