The Swedish FireSteel is the perfect gift for anyone with a taste for the outdoors. Its 3,000°C (5,500°F) spark makes fire building easy in any weather, at any altitude. Originally developed for the Swedish Department of Defense, this fire starter is ideal for survival experts, hunters, fishermen, campers, backpackers and scouts…they almost look like keys, however these colorful items can save your life.
Design by Joachim Nordwall, the FireSteel is durable and well constructed. It’s available in bold colors and comes in two models; if you’re an occasional camper go with the Scout model which will last up to 3000 strikes. However, the Army model will be more suitable for the frequent user, lasting up to 12000 strikes.
