For easy fire-making, even with gloves on or in humid weather, the Kupilka FireSteel 8 creates serious sparks up to 3000 degrees Celsius. Weighing just 1.66 ounces, there's no excuse to leave this award-winning survival gear behind.

Made in Finland, the sustainably-produced FireSteel 8 features a European ferrocerium rod, an ethically-produced reindeer leather cord, and a compact striker that's a byproduct of the metal industry.

It was designed in collaboration with Karu Survival, Finland's leading company specializing in teaching bushcraft and survival skills.

Kupilka's FireSteel 8 was the 2019 Hardware Winner for the Scandinavian Outdoor Awards and the 2019 ISPO Award Outdoor/Tools & Equipment Winner.
