The ferro-rod's large surface area creates the perfect strike-zone for powerful sparks with every strike.
Fire Set is designed to last 20,000 strikes, making it more sustainable and longer lasting than any match box or lighter.
Fire Set strikes at all altitudes, and even in wet conditions. It consistently generates sparks of 5400°F degrees, making sure you can reliably light a fire every time.
This is the best fire starter I've purchased. The blade is solid and is long enough to generate a good spark that will light up a bit of dryer lint with ease.
I couldn't resist buying this. Always wanted to go bush with my fire-making. Works perfectly as long as you have some cotton wool smeared with petroleum jelly to catch the spark. Rub the scraper gently a few times on the rod to 'warm up' then go for the strike-light hit. You'll get a spark the first time. Top the now flaming cotton wool with fatwood shavings and you have your nascent fire. Add a couple of sticks of fatwood and you're alight.
Well built n solid. I like how the striker nests with it. Most strikers are annoying to store in kits. Easily was able to produce sparks. Haven't had a chance to start a fire with it yet due to lockdowns.
Fire Set works by striking steel against a Ferrocerium rod which produces extremely hot sparks - up to 2980 C (5400 F)! Just make sure you have a nice bed of tinder and kindling for your sparks to fall into.
For Fire Set to work properly, use a highly flammable material as a catch for your sparks. We recommend using Spark Fiber or a cotton ball dabbed with a bit of petroleum jelly.
1. For optimal performance, use Spark Fiber or a cotton ball dabbed with some petroleum jelly as a catch for your sparks.
2. Prepare your kindling, such as birch bark or dry twigs.
3. Scrape off the black paint covering the ferro rod.
4. Set the ferro rod against Spark Fiber.
5. Use the top edge of the striker to apply pressure and strike firmly.
Your Fire Set doesn’t need much cleaning or long term care. Make sure to keep the ferro rod and striker clean of any dirt, grease, etc. that could hinder the ability to strike and spark cleanly.
