Almost everyone carries some sort of fire starter in their edc pack, be it a standard Bic lighter, some matches or something more raw like flint and tinder. Launched earlier this year on Kickstarter, Dissim created a new ergonomically optimized lighter which is meant to be used either right side up or upside down. It also looks way more badass than your standard lighter, and is sure to be a conversation starter whenever you pull it out.
