A survival tool for creating a tool of survival

Originally developed for the Swedish Department of Defense, Swedish FireSteel is a flash of genius. 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 3,000C (5,500F)
  • 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
  • Also available: MayaDust - a fire starting material made from Pino de Ocote, a fatwood pine cultivated in the highlands of Guatemala and Mexico. With an 80% resin content, MayaDust is easy to light even when wet and produces an extremely hot flame. Packed in a convenient waterproof tin it gives maximum heat energy for minimal weight.
