Light My Fire Swedish FireSteel 2.0 Army

Recommended Posts

I can not tell you how many firesteel's I own some good some bad, but my latest DYI project that didn't work out so well led me to believe I might need to check out something better. So I buckled down and spent some money on the Light My Fire Swedish FireSteel 2.0 Army 12,000 Strike Fire Starter with Emergency Whistle at $12.80 U.S. it's almost 3 times the money I've spent on other fire starters and all I can say is it was well worth the cost. Very high quality and you can tell this thing is well built at approx 3/8" diameter and 2-1/2" long it should last a good long time and feels very sturdy in my hands. This firesteel throws lots of sparks and I got all kinds of tender to spark right up from cotton, bark, and magnesium. Give it a go I was pretty happy with it and will be buying more to include in all my kits. Amazon link here.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to put all the others I have in a junk drawer and just get these for my bags and preps. 

We gave ours away & only kept the LMF ones. :)

Good to know. I bought something a long time ago and haven't even taken out of the package! Just a back up as I'm rarely without a handful of Bic lighters at hand. 

Think I'll switch up for camping this year and only start the camp fires with strikers. Good practice at least!

Dear dthomasdigital,

Correct, and if you cheat and use cotton balls, first strike every time.:D

Kind regards,
