The Faststrike tool is a 3-inch long ferrocerium high-energy sparking rod and a 3-inch hardened steel hacksaw blade weighing only 1 oz. This simple and compact sparking system is more reliable than others, including flint-based lighters, because it has no mechanical parts and works when wet. The Faststrike system is also flexible for multiple tasks. When not needed for striking the sparking rod, the hacksaw blade can be used for cutting various materials, including metals, and produces excellent saw dust for use as additional tinder material.
The Fastfire tinder material, when contacted by a flame or just sparks, creates a sustained 1,300 degree flame in seconds. The Fastfire cube is ideal tinder when trying to get a camp or survival fire going under any conditions. It produces a wind resistant flame that will ignite even when wet. A full cube will burn for 10-12 minutes. If cut into 8 pieces for extended use, each piece will burn for 2-3 minutes. The cubes are individually sealed in a heavy-duty foil laminate wrap for long term storage.
