Product Description


Channel your inner caveman. Use small spark, make big fire, ugh. Scrape a knife or the included striker down the length of the FireSteel rod to release a massive a shower of 5400°F sparks. No worries about damp matches or a lighter running out of fluid. If you can’t start a fire with this tool…well, then you probably shouldn’t be playing with fire anyway. Timeless back-to-basics fire starting tool works even when the conditions are wet and cold to ignite a stove, paper, dry grass or any dry tinder. Twenty years from now it will still work perfectly, too.

“The sparks from a well-struck flint and steel can be seen for much more than a mile.”

(And these luddite fire starting kits are also legal to carry thru TSA checkpoints. It’s no small satisfaction to know that one can always make a big fire in a few moments, regardless of where one is. TSA signage says ‘no matches, no Bic lighters, no ____ of any kind’ with a cute row of about ten ‘prohibited:’ icons. But flint & steel sets aren’t shown. And now you know what’s in my carry-on…
