“You’d never suspect this slim survival carabiner has six tools packed into it. We were especially intrigued by its low-profile fire starter. ”

“Who doesn’t love a good carabiner? What can your “biner” do? Can it open bottles? Cut cord, string, whatever? Tighten or loosen screws? Hang keys from a separate slot, out of the way of the main clip area? Start a fire? Really, the Firebiner starts a fire. I promise. Check it out.”
