When struck with a harder material such as a flint striker, knife blade, or jagged piece of scrap metal, the rod pyrophoric composition produces hot sparks that can reach temperatures of 3,315 degrees C (6,000 degrees F). Striking both scrapes fragments off, exposing them to oxygen, and ignites them by the flint striker friction.
If you’ve stored or gathered some bone-dry tinder, this fire lighting flint tool will ignite that tinder first attempt. 10 pieces in this pack, you are guaranteed a fire lighting capacity of well over 30 years.
