It was way back in 2013 when Fort Standard built an all brass fire kit concept. That concept was known as “Life Is Precious,” and it was a marriage of functionality and beautiful design that was met with overwhelming fanfare. That fanfare encouraged the brand to make an actual, purchasable kit so people could do more than stare at it on a computer screen. This is that kit. The Solid Brass Fire Kit, as the name suggests, is machined from a solid bar of brass. Inside the fireproof canister is a collection of strike-anywhere matches, ready to assist in the most dire circumstances. The brass cylinder is engraved with “Fire – Light & Warmth – Strike on Bottom,” which is exactly what you should do when you need to spark a fire, as the undercarriage of the canister is outfitted with a knurled striking pad. Hey, no one said survival tools had to look hideous.
