Swedish Firesteel

A Campers Favorite Friend!

Swedish Firesteel sparks an exceptionally bright spark for lighting fires, and can also be used for emergency signals!

Light your Fires in a FLASH with Swedish Firesteel...

You'll never need matches while camping again. It's perfect for lighting fires, barbeques, gas stoves, and gas barbeques.

This brilliant innovation, originally from the Swedish Department of Defense, makes fire-starting easy in any weather conditions.

The Magnesium Alloy sparks at almost 3,000°C, so no matter the weather and no matter the temperature, you've got enough of a spark to get that fire going!

It also lasts for about 12,000 strikes...

No wonder it's a favorite for many armies around the world, and for campers, hunters, hikers, and fisherman, etc.

How Does It Work?

Firstly you need something for the spark to catch fire in. So prepare some small shavings, dry grass, paper, or leaves to get your fire started.

Then slowly move the blade over the firesteel to make sparks that fall into your fire-starting material. Or onto your gas stove or barbeque.

And that's it! As simple as one, two... strike!
