Swedish FireSteel was originally developed by the Swedish Department of Defense – due to the weather conditions in Sweden a fire starter was needed that was waterproof, snowproof, altitude immune and exceedingly reliable.

Matches, lighters and other traditional methods of starting fires all have significant drawbacks, so there’s a huge benefit to a small, simple device that can launch a stream of sparks at 2,980 degrees centigrade onto tinder. Swedish FireSteel works with wet, damp and otherwise hard to light materials – meaning it’s perfect for everyone from Swedish Special Forces to a Boy Scout Troupe.
