WINNER Selected- KNIFE GIVEAWAY Light My Fire/Mora Swedish Fireknife & Tinder on a Rope

UPDATE- Winner selected!

Hi Everyone,

We had 49 people sign up for the giveaway, and #25 was selected by Random Number Generator. To that person, congratulations!. If you signed up but didn't verify your email as instructed, we did not count your entry (sorry). We look at unverified emails as potentially fraudulent/spam, so we have to make sure they are verified.

I decided after posting the giveaway to also create a drawing for five consolation prizes for those who didn't win the FireKnife. The prizes are Colorado Douglas Fir Fatwood Tinder Sticks that I harvested and made myself. These are similar in quality to Light My Fire's Tinder on a Rope, except that they were extracted locally from the Rocky Mountains and hand carved with a Wetterlings Hatchet and Mora knife.

Douglas Fir is considered to have the most flammable resin of all North American conifer trees. It is also quite rare to find compared to other varieties of fatwood. Each stick has an attached piece of climbing cord so that they can be attached to your pack, caribiner or belt loop. Makes a great tinder for starting fires, since fatwood is waterproof and will ignite and burn even when wet. Plus, it has a great smell to it!

Here's the original piece the sticks were harvested from:

  1. That's very generous guys and a neat giveaway. Someone at any experience level would appreciate this.


  2. is it brand new or is it the one u used in ur test?its no biggie and itd be a great win either way.just asking.

    1. No, it's brand new in the box. Cheers, J

    2. I heard a rumor that gear used by the team at Rocky Mountain Bushcraft is worth more than it is new... :)


  3. I have always enjoyed outdoor activities, and while I was looking for a knife for my upcoming hiking trip, I came across Rocky Mountain Bushcraft blog. I read a review about the Light My Fire knife and thought about getting one. I signed up for Rocky Mountain Bushcraft email updates to read more reviews from the team, and to my surprise, I was selected as the winner for the KNIFE GIVEAWAY Light My Fire/Mora Swedish Fireknife & Tinder on a Rope. I was received congratulation email from Jason and was happy to provide him my address. Finally the knife and the tinder came, and all I could say was “WOW!”. The quality of the knife is superb, and although I have not tested them yet, I believe that I should not have any difficulty making fire using the tinder and firesteel.

    This is far beyond my expectation! Thank you Jason and Rocky Mountain Bushcraft team for your generous gift!

    As someone has said, I would prefer the tested knife used by Rocky Mountain Bushcraft team:) Anyway, I know this brand new knife will also carry a very good story with it from now on.
