Our fire starter provides the benefits of magnesium, flint and steel with a unique small deer antler handle allowing you to start a fire when and where you need it. This item is great for outdoorsman, hunters, hikers and fishermen. By quickly and firmly sliding the steel blade along the flint, a shower of hot sparks will be produced to light up your kindling. If the area is damp, a few strokes on the magnesium will leave flakes on your kindling. These flakes, when ignited by the hot flint sparks, will burn at 5,400 degrees F - enough to produce a flame on any surface.
