Survival Laces are made of military grade 550 paracord. The core of the lace contains the standard seven strands of nylon, a 1 inch ferro rod, and one 4 inch strand of tinder.
One end of a lace is filled with an 8th strand (tinder), which is accessible by first removing the metal aglet. The tinder is colored red, waterproof, and is extremely flammable. This strand is cut to an optimal length of 4 inches, allowing you to use what is needed and leave you with a surplus (to accommodate those with amateur fire making skills or experience). Once the tinder is removed from the lace, it can be teased by a knife or sharp edge, giving it more volume and making it more flammable. The additional strands are good for building shelter, repairing gear, building a weapon or trap, bandaging a wound, catching game, etc. If you have had any experience with paracord you will know the list of possibilities is endless.
