Ultimate Survival BlastMatch Fire Starter Black
Anyone who ventures into the outdoors should have a fire starter. Why not carry the one chosen by those most at risk of facing severe conditions?
Designed for all-weather use, this patented fire-starting system functions superbly in the most extreme marine, arctic, desert, and jungle environments. The BlastMatch™ was developed for Air Force fighter pilots at risk of being shot down in harsh terrain, or the mountain climber dealing with challenging alpine conditions. People like these must have a fire starter that is operable with one hand in case of injury, that won't disappoint you by running out of fuel, and never fails to light in the wind, rain, or snow.
The BlastMatch™ creates a stream of sparks three times as hot as a standard match and easily will ignite any material (wood, paper, bark, cloth, or man-made fire starting tinders) that a match will light. You can precisely aim the sparks to ignite a roaring fire in any weather conditions.
If the BlastMatch™ becomes wet, just wipe it off and it is all set for use. In conjunction with WetFire™ Starting Tinder, you can start a fire even in the driving rain.
At the center of the BlastMatch™ is a custom bar of high performance flint material. Spring loaded to be compact; the flint bar also turns 360 degrees to help avoid uneven wear and tear. A tungsten carbide striker built into the striker button is positioned at the exact angle for maximum sparking - taking any guesswork out of starting a fire.
Incorporated into the BlastMatch™ is a safety feature to prevent unintentional ignition when accidentally plunged. The unique design calls for the operator to press the thumb button in order to connect the striker mechanism.
