Hiking safety
In a emergency situation a campfire can save your life. By using fire or smoke you could signal help for rescue. Fire will give you protection, warmth, dry your gear, make your water drinkable and cook your food.
Traditional methods
When traditional matches are long enough in contact with humid air they won't work any more. "Old matches" are fragile and crumble easily. Butane lighters don't last long and they won't work in a storm, highly humid conditions or in cold weather. When they become wet or cold these lighters won't work at all.
A new way to make a campfire
A group of survival experts started to develop a simple and reliable firestarter for any weather condition. As a result, they achieved a new production method, which led to a unique metal alloy. When this metal is struck with a sharp metal object it produces extremely hot sparks, which are able to set tinder on fire.
