The original magnesium fire starter is tough, durable and fit for purpose. Developed for the army it performs to the highest standard. 3,000 strikes at 3,000 degrees makes fire lighting possible in any weather at any altitude. Get the technique, get the fire, get warm and get the food on. Ergonomic design and a built-in whistle, nothing but the best.
The firesteel rod measures 1/4" in diameter. This does not fit most sheaths made today, but is a light weight unit that is well suited for emergency kits, backpacking, or camping applications.
