FIRESTRIKERS

The Swedish fire steel is a ferrocerium-based fire starter originally developed for the Swedish Ministry of Defence. It creates a shower of sparks at temperatures of around 3,000 degrees Celsius that can be used to ignite a campfire. It can also operate in damp conditions.

When scraped with the back of a knife, or any other metal object, the FireSteel gives off small metal shavings which then spontaneously ignite.

Also known as a fire starter, strike-a-light or fire striker.
