Originally developed for the Swedish Department of Defense,the Fire Steel is a flash of genius. Its 3,000°C spark makes fire building easy in any weather, at any altitude.
Used by a number of armies around the world, dependability has already made it a favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen and campers.
Starting a fire with a fire steel is an excellent, low-impact, sustainable method which can easily replace a lighter and matches with practice.
Take a small quantity of dry grass, or other flammable material and build them up into a pile. Grip the fire steel and hold the striker against it. Grind the Striker against the rod to create sparks. These will eventually light up the grass or tinder.
