This will be an unusual first post.I am slated to appear on a survival show. As part of the shop's requirements I am only allowed to have one item. I want a Swiss flame. Preferred is the Campflame with the woodsaw, or secondly a xxlt. The trick is it has to work. Or I get it soon enough to be able to try and mod it to work. I can pay via credit card, paypal, western union. I can also do trades for rare AK47 parts and accessories.I am located in North Carolina and have no issue paying worldwide shipping. I will most certainly pay up for the right knife. More if it works. If someone knows of one for sale near them I will also provide a finders fee.
I have several, including a couple of CampFlames. Let me check if any of them actually works.

Working is always better than non. Otherwise i have to try to strip the guts and shoehorn the internals from a cigar lighter in there.
Having read about the functionality of the Swissflames, I´d rather not bet my life on one. Hasn´t there been an Alox with a firesteel?! Wouldn´t that be the safer bet?
It´s one item:http://www.sakwiki.com/show_image.php?id=1546Read here under variations:http://www.sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Victorinox+FarmerYou´d have to find a Flintstone, though.

If it comes down to only being allowed to have ONE object, as in no separate ferro rod and tool, the 'Firesteel SAK' mentioned earlier might be an excellent option. All you'd need was a hard rock to strike it against.The knife on which it's based, the Farmer, is also a GREAT outdoor knife, with good saw and solid awl.I am normally the first person to say 'go for a lighter'. But in this case, since they seem... 'picky' to say the least, you might want to go for the most bulletproof design.In any case, best of luck with the adventure. I'll be in my comfy chair while you're 'disrobed and distressed'.

Well 10 seconds is enough to start a fire.
