Just watching Ray Mears (again!) on BBC 4
I fancy having a go at making Steven King's fire lighting kit, and Ray talks about soaking the cotton in saltpeter...
...now, as I'm sure we're all aware saltpeter has a number of uses - I don't fancy the 5am knock on the door from the men in black!
What do people think? Will I be OK ordering saltpeter? Where's the best place to buy it legitimately?
Any comments/suggestions greatly appreciated
