Its nearly 3,000°C spark makes fire building easy in any weather, at any altitude. Used by a number of armies around the world, Swedish FireSteel's dependability has already made it a favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen and campers. It has also found its way into cabins and backyards as a fool-proof way to light stoves and gas-barbecues. Amazingly enough it also works equally well when wet. We think geeks will appreciate the power of being able to start a fire with such a simple tool. A metal blade is slowly moved across the Firesteel, generating sparks that can easily be thrown onto a small pile of dry grass, leaves or paper to start a fire. When the fire is becoming established, thin sticks of wood can be added, gradually increasing to thicker ones. The Swedish FireSteel has these great features. * Lights campfires, stoves, gas-barbecues * Uses a magnesium alloy that consists of 7 metals * Lasts for approximately 12,000 strikes * Produces a spark temperature close to 3,000°C (5,500°F) * Bright spark – can be used as emergency signal * Functions in rain and snow * Dimensions: main component is approx. 3.75" long * Weight: approx. 1.9 ounces
