Originally developed for the Swedish Department of Defense, the FireSteel is a flash of genius. The FireSteel is
intended to replace matchbooks, lighters, and other fire starters, providing a 3,000-degree C (5,432-degree F) spark
that makes it easy to build fires in any weather, at any altitude. The FireSteel is a breeze to use: just pile up a
small quantity of dry grass, paper, or other flammable material, and then force the included striker down the FireSteel.
The resulting spark will create a fire even when wet, letting you light campfires, stoves, and gas barbecues at a
moment's notice. Used by a number of armies around the world, the FireSteel's dependability has already made it a
favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen, and campers. It's also found its way into cabins and backyards as a
foolproof fire-starting tool for tough conditions. You can even use the bright spark as an emergency signal.
This Army version of the FireSteel, which comes in several handle colors, is designed to last for 12,000 strikes and is
approved by the International Survival Instructors Association.
