Doan is no longer in business.

The Doan Magnesium Firestarter was invented by company founder Sol Levenson in 1973. As an avid outdoorsman, Sol saw the need for a reliable, durable and easy-to-use firestarter while on a business trip in South America with his friend Rocky Marciano, the legendary heavyweight boxing champion.

The Doan Magnesium Firestarter was soon adopted by the US Armed Forces. Sol would always proudly state that his tool was standard issue in the survival pack of F16 fighter pilots.
