In a survival situation, keeping warm is of primary concern. Almost everything else can wait. The K1 "Sparky" Magensium Fire Starter is designed for this purpose and is small enough to carry with you at all times. The Strike Master Fire Starter K1 by Strike Master Survival Tools is made of a stick of flint and a stick of magnesium fused into one unit. This allows one to produce very hot and easily started fires with the K1 Strike Master Fire Starter.
The Strike Master K1 Sparky Fire Starter is operated by using the included scraper to shave magnesium flakes into a pile, then again using the scraper on the flint side of the K1 to ignite the magnesium. The magnesium will burn at 5400 degrees making it possible to ignite even damp or green tinder. Because the K1 is designed for 1000 strikes, it is a very reliable and long lasting survival fire starter.
The "Sparky" K1 Fire Starter can also be used as a signaling device as the sparks can be seen for over 3 miles. The K1 "Sparky" Fire Starter comes complete with flint-magnesium stick, ring and striker.
