Why We Like It

A reliable source of fire is essential for just about any outing, especially in the backcountry. You can't always count on that lighter in your pocket, but you can count on the FireSteel fire starter in any weather or altitude. Originally developed for the Swedish Department of Defense, the FireSteel is legendary for durability and performance.


This new generation FireSteel builds on the classic magnesium fire starter with an improved striker that makes it even easier to build a fire in any weather and at any altitude. Generation 2.0 incorporates a new design, a flexible cord, and a built-in emergency whistle.

  • Lights campfires, gas-stoves, gas-barbecues
  • Works equally well when wet
  • 3,000 strikes
  • Predictable performance at all altitudes
  • Bright spark - can be used as emergency signal
  • Striker handle includes an emergency whistle
