Manufacturer's Description

Originally developed for the Swedish Department of Defense, our legendary Swedish FireSteel is the original fire starter. Being the best, however, means always having to push the envelope. The result is a new generation with an improved striker that makes it even easier to build a fire in any weather, at any altitude.

Our second generation Swedish FireSteel 2.0 also features a new design, a color matched lanyard, and a built-in emergency whistle. The Swedish FireSteel’s dependability and intense, close to 3,000°C (5400°F) sparks, have long made it a favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen, and campers. It has also found its way into cabins and backyards as a foolproof way to light stoves and gas barbecues.
