Produces 3000C hot sparks when struck with the enclosed metal striker or another sharp edged steel object (knife back). These sparks set fire to any dry tinder like paper or magnesium chips even in wet conditions. Can also be used for signalling in the dark.

The Fire Steel is made of a metal alloy called Ferrocerium, which was invented in 1909 by the Austrian chemist Carl Auer von Welsbach. In addition to iron, the alloy contains magnesium, cerium and lanthanum. 

A great present for all camping, outdoor, and survival fans. Complete with leather strap and metal tool to strike it with.
