Animated Illustration of the FiresteelDeveloped by the Swedish Defence Department (small but perfectly formed no doubt), the Light My Fire Firesteel is simply staggering. Whenever you're in the great outdoors (or if you often battle with your fireplace), just reach for your Firesteel and you'll never need - or want to use, frankly - a lighter or matches ever again.

Working even in the wet or cold, a slow and easy 'strike' across this magic little steel produces a huge spark up to 3,000°C! We couldn't believe how much spark this little marvel put out - it's a much brighter spark than anyone round here, that's for sure.

Its 3,000°C spark makes fire building easy in any weather, at any altitude. Used by a number of armies around the world, Swedish FireSteel’s dependability has already made it a favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen and campers. It has also found its way into cabins and backyards as a fool-proof way to light stoves and gas-barbecues. 


  • A Swedish fire starter that starts a fire whatever the weather.
  • By dragging the striker along the Firestarter a spark is ignited.
  • The spark will easily ignite stoves, barbeques, dry grass and bark.
  • The Firesteel is water resistant.
  • There are 12000 strikes in the Firesteel.
  • Suitable for adults only.
  • Size: 15 x 5 x 1.5cm.

Barbecue FireSteel (select model above)

Made with the same steel as our Army model, we´ve equipped our Barbecue FireSteel with a sturdy oak handle to make it a perfect fire-starter for the Saturday afternoon patio party. Its impressive sparks are also great for lighting gas stoves at home and in the wild. (12,000 strikes)

Swedish FireSteel Scout Version (select model above)

Originally developed for the Swedish Department of Defense, Swedish FireSteel is a flash of genius. Its 3,000°C spark makes fire building easy in any weather, at any altitude. Used by a number of armies around the world, Swedish FireSteel’s dependability has already made it a favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen and campers. It has also found its way into cabins and backyards as a fool-proof way to light stoves and gas-barbecues. (3,000 strikes)
