The patented StrikeForce® is an exceptional all-weather fire starting system. The system combines in one compact, durable package a special alloy flint bar, hardened steel striker, and revolutionary WetFire™ tinder.
Scraping the striker down the flint generates a spark three times as hot as a standard match to ignite easily any dry tinder material. Or, use the included WetFire™ tinder which burns at more than 1300 degrees. Non-toxic, odorless, and smokeless, the tinder actually burns longer when wet!
When conditions are at their worst you can count on StrikeForce® to make a warming fire. It also is a safe and easy lighter for backpacker stoves or barbecues.
At less than four ounces, a StrikeForce® is an essential tool which should be in the pocket of everyone who does anything outside. The StrikeForce® is made in the U.S.A.
The name "StrikeForce" is registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark

It’s important to have a good fire starter. It’s also important to have some good tinder. We sell some very good tinders here. However, it is also important to use your fire starter at home before you go outdoors. A great project for the budding outdoorsman is making your own tinder. Try the cotton ball and vaseline tinder method. Just get a cotton ball and some vaseline. Get the vaseline throughout the cotton ball, but don’t oversoak it so it’s too wet with vaseline. You’ll need to pull the cotton ball apart a bit to expose the individual threads and throw a spark from you new fire starter. You’ll be amazed at how quickly it catches fire and how long and hot it burns. This is a great project for scout troops as well.
The homemade cotton ball and vaseline tinder is great, but can be messy. Go ahead and also try one or more of our compressed tinders. Another great project is to try different fire starters and tinders to see which works best for you. Again, the bottom line is to learn how to make a fire with your fire starter long before you have to start a fire in a survival situation.
