The ability to make fire is the cornerstone of wildland survival. Our Magnesium Fire Starter ensures that you'll always have a foolproof firestarter, whatever the weather is doing. Our magnesium block provides shavings that burn at more than 5000 degrees - hot enough to light even the wettest tinder. We also include a flint and striker, so you can ignite your magnesium shavings with ease. Each block contains enough magnesium for hundreds of fires.
