Shomer-Tec Escape & Survival Module

Saturday, March 9th, 2019


The Escape & Survival Module was developed for a US military unit, but it also can be a lifesaving device for those who travel in harm’s way or in dangerous regions. This kit provides effective tools to enable escape from captivity and subsequent survival. It’s all contained in a special o-ring sealed module which was designed to provide maximum concealment options when capture is imminent.

Despite its small size, it includes all of the following components: 4 lock picks, handcuff key, 2 styles of lock shims, Kevlar® escape saw, diamond rod saw, ferrocerium fire rod, 3 waxed jute fire starters, and ceramic razor blade. Even the module itself is a working component – it’s milled from magnesium and can be shaved down with the back edge of the ceramic razor blade for fire starting. Also included is a small packet of petrolatum (does not fit inside the module), for uses that include first aid, fire accelerant, etc.

Government contract over-runs, so quantities are very limited. Dimensions and weight (w/o petrolatum packet): 3.2” length x 0.7” diameter, 1.1 oz.

Shomer-Tec – Fire Cards

Saturday, July 28th, 2018

Shomer-Tec’s new Fire Cards are credit card sized fire-starting tools which take up minimal space in a survival kit or fits in your wallet so you’ll always have it when needed. They come in two flavors; an accelerant and a fuel.


Due to its thin profile and easy gripping, its very easy to create magnesium shavings, which when ignited by ferrocerium sparks will burn extremely hot to ignite your tinder. Size: 3.26” x 2.10” x 0.05”. Weight: 0.28 oz. Made in USA.


The Cedar Card is a survival kindling card made from a solid piece of Western Red Cedar, known for its hot burn (even when damp) due to its natural oils and resins. It’s pre-scored and ready for breaking into pieces and forming a fire base. Works great when using magnesium shavings and ferrocerium or even just a match. Size: 3.37” x 2.13” x 0.10”. Weight: 0.1 oz. Sustainably grown and made in USA.
