Swedish FireSteel 2.0

Pyrotechnic technology

Humankind has gone through some pretty embarrassing situations in our quest for fire. We went from huddling in the rain waiting for lightning to strike an old tree, to sitting in a damp cave furiously rubbing two sticks together, to crouching outside a leaky tent with a soggy box of matches. Hardly the all-conquering geniuses the history books would have us believe.

But fear not chilly campers, because a vintage piece of pyrotechnic technology has been updated for a new generation: the Firesteel 2.0! With more than 12,000 strikes per unit, this ferrocerium fire striker is infinitely more efficient than lugging a sack of 240 match boxes around – and it's standard issue in the Swedish Army. Besides, if the eggcup taught us anything, it’s that sometimes you’re better off relying on a classic.

Don't panic

With a new and improved striker, you’ll have showers of sparks in no time, no matter where you are or how poor the conditions. If in your enthusiasm your campfire gets a bit out of hand, simply blow a few blasts on the handy built-in emergency whistle to alert nearby authorities or helpful wild animals. Then you can just sit back, warm your hands, toast a few marshmallows and wait for rescue.

So stand triumphant and blow your tiny whistle at the sky as you revel in your newfound fire-starting prowess. This ancient and elemental force has a new master, and its name is Firesteel 2.0
