Description

When venturing into the wilderness it's always a good idea to pack a decent fire starter along with your sleeping bag, tent and clean undies. The humble safety match is all well and good indoors, but trying to light a stack of twigs with a soggy Swan Vesta in the pouring rain is a bit like trying to nail custard to the wall with a rubber hammer (but not nearly as much fun).

Of course you can always rely on pre-historic Captain Caveman-style ways to create fire - rubbing sticks together is one method, as is chipping flint stones - but these techniques are distinctly un-Firebox, not to mention tedious. Besides, despite the obvious profit margin, we couldn't possibly sell sticks and stones alongside our fabulously hi-tech array of gadgets and gizmos.

Blast Match Fire Starter: In use That's why we almost spontaneously combusted with excitement the moment we saw the incredible Blast Match Fire Starter. Designed by a former US Air Force survival expert, this ultra-efficient fire-starting system performs superbly in the most extreme weather conditions (perfect for the UK, then) and it's guaranteed for life.

Originally designed for Rambo-esque military personnel, this light but rugged finger of fire generates an almighty spark that is three times hotter than a standard match. This means the Blast Match is capable of igniting any material (wood, paper, bark, cloth or man-made tinder) that a match can, even if it's raining, snowing or blowing a gale. And if the Blast Match becomes wet, you simply wipe it off.

Blast Match Fire Starter At the heart of the Blast Match is a spring-loaded flint bar which rotates 360° to help prevent uneven wear and tear. A tungsten carbide striker built into the striker button is set at the perfect angle for maximum sparking. This takes the guess work out of starting a fire and allows you to accurately direct the spark. All you need to do is press the thumb button and plunge the Blast Match towards your tinder.

This really is a must have gizmo for all you outdoors-types. So if you go down to the woods today - or any day, for that matter - be sure to pack a Blast Match. It's flaming-well brilliant.

    Handling instructions:

    Blast Match Fire Starter: Handling instructions
    • Step 1: Gently raise striker button tab to release the end cap, exposing the spring loaded flint.

    • Step 2: Slide end cap to clear flint bar and rotate cap to rear of the Blast Match body.

    • Step 3: Fit cap on rear of the Blast Match body. (Cap will sit loosely yet securely).

    • Step 4: Place thumb on striker tab and press down with medium pressure. Plunge the body of the Blast Match Fire Starter down the striker bar, making sure that the flint bar remains in line with the Blast Match body.
    Please note:
    • Allowing the flint bar to bend out of line with the Blast Match may snap off or damage the striker tab.

    • Do not pull striker tab back away from the Blast Match body.

    • The bar is made from magnesium and should not be used indoors.

    • Keep away from laminated surfaces, as they will ignite with use.

    • Never aim sparks at another person or anything you don't want to burn.
    Fire Building Instructions:
    1. Find an area of firm, dry ground or a large piece of bark for fire platform. Clear an area down to bare dirt at least three time larger than the fire you will build.

    2. Collect more tinder than you expect to need and build into a pile, nest or fluff. Place prepared tinder in centre of fire platform.

    3. Open Blast Match as described above and place flint bar on firm surface close to prepared tinder. While pressing down on striker button with thumb, push body of the Blast Match straight toward tip of the flint bar to create a stream of intensely hot sparks and light tinder.

    4. After tinder is burning well, add small kindling. Slowly add larger materials up to a size no larger than your thumb. When these are burning well, slowly add materials until fire is desired size.

    5. When done, extinguish all materials. Pour water or loose soil on fire and stir.
