This Coghlans Flint Striker magnesium fire starting tool lasts for thousands of strikes! Pushing the striker provided down the rod emits sparks to light combustibles. Fireproof in solid form, the tool works just as well when wet. For use in any weather and at any altitude. Includes handle, striker, fire starter rod and cord.
Coghlan’s Flint Striker is a rod made of magnesium with a striker attached with a piece of cord. It is simple to operate. You just take the striker and hold it in one hand with the word UP facing the top of the rod. Make sure the serrations are in contact with the rod and pull it down the rod. This results in a shower of sparks that can help you start your campfire.
The best thing about the Flint Striker is it is completely safe unless your using it. It is non-flammable and can also work when wet. That means if your pack is wet from your hike, you can still start a fire if you can find some dry wood.
- Always works - in any weather or altitude
Instructions for Use:
1. Remove paint on Flint Striker by scraping with striker or back of knife blade along the flint rod.
2. Using the supplied metal striker or a knife blade, scrape the flint with a steady forward motion down the length of the rod. Sparks easily ignite tinder such as dry pine needles, leaves or dry grass.
Durable: lasts approximately 4000 strikes. Water Resistant:works even when wet and cold
