~~~~~~The Picture that you see is similar to the fire steel that
you will receive ~~~~~Some designs might vary cause not
one is alike being all handmade by Mr. Buy2eze to perfection!

***************************************************************

Two of military's greatest contributions to civilization..…….

First, the ferrocerium rod commonly known as the Fire steel
developed by the Swedish Dept. of Defense to be a weatherproof fire starter for it’s troops.
When scraped by a sharp piece of steel it will produce a shower of sparks
 capable of igniting dry tender --
even when the fire steel is wet and will work equally well at any altitude.

I recommend using a cotton ball saturated
with a small amount of petroleum jelly as your primary tender
(Lights very easily, burns hot and long! And it's cheap!)
-------------------------------------------------------------

My fire steel has a hand turned Oak handle (Turned by me)
approximately 3" long by 3/4" in diameter, sealed with two coats
of polyurethane varnish. The rod is approx., 1/4" in diameter
and has approx., 2 1/2" exposed area for scraping.

A round eye screw at the end of the handle is tied to about 12" of bright orange 550 para cord which has a stainless steel split ring
 and a US P-38 can opener at the other end.
-----------------------------------------------------------------


The US Army P-38 has been called the US military's greatest gift to world civilization....

Light, simple effective, and durable!
It came to be referred to as the P-38 because it took 38 strokes with it to open the old military "C ration" cans with which it was originally issues.

Today's M R E's use plastic packaging, but the P-38's big brother, the P-51 is still issued....
A design too good to mothball!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
While the P-38 will strike sparks from the fire steel, I have included a custom made striker
 using a tool bit made of M2 high speed steel in a hand turned black acetal plastic handle,
which not only does a much better job, but is much more comfortable to use! It slides on the paracord between the P-38 and the firerod on its own eye screw. The M2 HSS bit will outlast the chrome plated strikers you see suppliedwith other "brand named" firerods
and throw an amazing shower of spitting, hissing sparks!
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Please note: A piece of survival gear, no matter how good,
will only function well if you know how to use it when you need it,
so may I suggest you practice making fire with your new fire steel before you need it.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

……….Get a cotton ball, rub a small amount of petroleum jelly
into it then pull it apart a bit to make it bigger.
Place it outside on a fireproof surface (Safety First!!!!)

…….. Hold the fire steel by the handle in your left hand near the cotton ball
(If you are right handed, use opposite hands if you are left handed)

……..Hold the striker with your other hand,
with the square high speed steel bit on the top of the fire steel rod
 with the bottom flat of the bit at about a 20 degree angle to the top of the rod ,
then scrape toward the bottom fast and hard!
You should generate a shower of big bright hot sparks
and the cotton ball should burst into flame
and burn 20 seconds to well over a minute
depending on how much petroleum jelly you used.
You may not get many sparks the first few times
due to the protective coating on the fire steel but,
as the coating wears off and you gain experience
you will find yourself making fire with nearly every strike!

At 1/4" thick and 2 1/2" long
your Fire Steel will last a long time!

**Please always use caution and be safe at all times! **

Thanks for looking and remember the Boy Scout motto...
