The nanoSTRIKER™ is a keychain sized fire starter designed to be carried every day without getting in your way. It contains a ferrocerium rod and a tungsten carbide insert to create a shower of sparks each time it’s scraped. It’s said to work best with tinders like paper, dry grasses, wood shavings, cotton balls, dry leaves, clothing lint and cotton.
At $26.95 it won’t break the bank and you never know when a waterproof fire starter might come in handy.
