FAQ fire steel

What is a fire steel? How does a fire steel work?

A firesteel is a tool used to start a fire. A fire starter consists of magnesium with which sparks can be struck. Lighting works best like this:
1. Scrape off some of the magnesium above the scale with light, gentle movements.
2. Ignite the magnesium filings with a stronger blow.
3. Use the burning tinder to burn more materials.

Why use a fire steel?

Unlike a lighter or matches, a fire starter is not susceptible to wetness or wind. It is also much easier to light a gas or spirit burner from a safe distance.

How long does a fire starter last?

A lighter will last several years if used once a day. Significantly longer than a lighter or a pack of matches.
