Whether you’re a camper, survivalist, or just someone who likes to be prepared for emergencies, a magnesium fire starter makes a worthy addition to your toolbox or camping bag. Fire-starting is one of the basic activities performed during camping and emergency situations, necessary for cooking, heating and lighting.
While modern day devices like electric-igniters and butane lighters are convenient, they are prone to failure. The trigger switches on electric fire-starters can break, butane lighters can easily crack and even waterproof matches can break. This is where a magnesium fire starter comes into play.
This waterproof fire starter serves as its own tinder and can produce a flame under damp conditions. The tinder lasts an incredibly long time. As a compact fire starter, it takes up practically no room at all, leaving plenty of space in your camping bag for other worthy essentials, like this 12 LED hand crank lantern.
In survival situations, you’ll want this simple, compact accessory with you at all times to get a fire going even in damp weather. The fire it generates is extremely hot and will ignite even damp kindling. It comes complete with its own striker which creates sparks when struck against the firesteel.
When it comes to finding a portable and reliable method for starting fires, Harbor Freight has you covered. Our simple fire starter requires no electricity, no messy fuel refills, and no special waterproofing.
