Swedish Firesteel

Originally developed for the Swedish Department of Defense, the Fire Steel is a flash of genius that can replace matchbooks, lighters, and other fire starters that are susceptible to wet and altitude. The Fire Steel provides a super hot 2,980-degree Celsius (5,400-degree Fahrenheit) spark that ignites quickly in any weather, at any altitude. To use the Fire Steel just pile up a small quantity of dry grass, paper, or other flammable material and then force the included striker down on the Fire Steel. The resulting spark will create a fire even when wet.

Good item with proper tinder – but the mag is easier Lanyard is plenty long and it makes lots of sparks (after a couple of scrapes to remove the paint).
