    Um, because a flare is not a multi-use firestarter.

    It's okay Hunter. I have five (5) road flares in each of my vehicles. For when you absolutely positively want a fire right now. In my way of thinking I don't give a monkey's left toe nail how you get the fire started. If I'm cold I'm starting a fire however and I'm not beyond using flammable liquids. I'll hold the flare so ya'll can see what your doing rubbing those sticks together in the dark.

    I can assure you that at the Jamboree's nobody cared how I got the morning fire going as long as the coffee was ready when they got up.

    For the knife you can use a sharp rock, and you can make cordage from natural plant fibers. But I always say - don't go out unprepared, always make sure you have a butane lighter in your pocket ! (notice I didn't say "BIC" lighter)

    Even if stranded in your vehicle with no matches, flare, lighters etc, you have fuel in the form a gasoline and spark from the battery or ignition system !

    Hey, why not have a flame thrower strapped to your back if you really need fire that bad? A road flare is bigger and heavier than a normal fire making device, and its only one time use. Those are not good criteria for a fire starter imo.
