You'll need an anvil too.

Yea, try that at -20 when your wet from the waste down, and half frozen hands!

I suspect almost all of us carry a hammer and stakes or at least wire, when trapping. Rocks should work for the anvil and as the hammer, in a pinch. A hatchet would work as the hammer too. Wire and stakes could both be heated up by pounding.

Best thing to light an emergency fire is waxed fusees-burn hot for 10 minutes and you can get a quick fire going without kindling.
I always carry some in the truck and on the snowmachine and bike.

Magnifying glass if you don't have a flame is much easier.
