The patented StrikeForce® is an exceptional all-weather flint based fire starting system. The system offers you an all-in-one compact, durable package, with a special alloy flint bar, hardened steel striker, and revolutionary WetFire™ tinder. And best of all, you can get over 4,000 strikes out of a single StrikeForce FireStarter! When you scrape the striker down the high performance flint material you generate a spark three times as hot as a standard match which will easily ignite any dry tinder material. Or, you can use the included WetFire™ tinder which burns at more than 1,300 degrees. We challenge you to find a better non-toxic, odorless tinder that actually burns longer when wet! You won’t find it. When conditions are at their worst you can count on StrikeForce® to make you a warming fire. It also is a safe and easy lighter for your backpacking stoves or barbecues. At less than four ounces, a StrikeForce® is an essential when you’re putting together a survival kit, gathering your camping gear, or even if you just plan to go hiking. A StrikeForce® fire starter should be in the pocket of everyone who does anything outdoors.
