Item specifics

Condition: New  

One of our most popular survival kit items, these amazing purple crystals really do fit the bill as an essential survival tool that fulfills several purposes.

Mixed with a tiny drop of glycerine (or glycol), the potassium permanganate bursts into bright purple flames, easily igniting tinder and helping you on your way to warmth and safety.

But a few crystals dissolved into a bottle of suspect water will purify it (you still ned to filter out solid matter of course). A couple more crystals will produce a stronger potency, and adding more will create an anti-fungal, anti-bacterial incoction that can cure athlete's foot and other trail nasties.

Poured carefully onto snow, it becomes a snow marker, ideal for leaving direction of travel arrows for rescuers, or for marking a safe landing zone for a heli extraction.

Potassium permanganate is truly an outdoor wonder, and is recommended by Lofty Wiseman in his classic, The SAS Survival Handbook. Try some and you'll soon see why!

Sold in 25g glass jars. Expires 2015.

Please note - This is MEDICAL grade Potassium Permanganate, not the cheap stuff used to clean ponds!
