Kershaw Fire Starter
The firesteel shaft is good for up to 3000 strikes and the chrome-plated striker is easy to hold and use. A molded plastic handle makes it easy to use and a nylon cord keeps it handy when you need it.
To get your fire going, all you'll need is a small pile of dry grass, wood shavings, or other flammable materials. Hold the magnesium firesteel shaft close to the pile and quickly draw the striker down the shaft at a right angle to produce sparks. The sparks will ignite the dry materials and, as the fire becomes established, you'll be able to gradually add larger materials to the fire until it is at the desired size. The Kershaw Fire-Starter also lights camp stoves and gas barbeques. In an emergency, the brilliant spark can be used as an emergency signal.
The Fire-Starter itself is compact enough to fit comfortably in your driest pocket — and, of course, it makes an essential addition to your dry-box supplies or survival gear.
Kershaw Camping Tip: Upgrade to a Kershaw Firestarter.
You never know what Mother Nature will do, so carrying waterproof matches is a good idea when camping. But carrying a Kershaw Fire-Starter is an even better idea. Here's why: The Kershaw Fire-Starter has a magnesium firesteel rod and steel striker, so you can strike a spark even when they're wet. No need for a special dry-box. Plus, the bright red handle makes it easy to spot. Use the included lanyard to attach it to a keychain or belt for access anytime.
