Your EDC fire starting choice?
#1
Question 
Years ago I started the 'Bic vs. Zippo' thread with an attached poll.  Went on for a bunch of pages and a ton of information.  Thought it was time to update the thread and the poll since there really are a lot more ways.

So, if you EDC a fire-starting tool...what is it?

Bic style as they always work, can be thrown around and in the end there's still a flint / wheel for spark if out of gas

I have Fire Starter Nano Striker that I carry on my key chain.

Always have my orange Zippo in my pocket and a peanut lighter on my survival key chain. I like the options they provide over other platforms. I do carry the small Bic in my EDC sling bag as a back up.
