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.
