Swedish FireSteel Heritage

First developed for the Swedish Department of Defense, the legendary Swedish FireSteel fire starter is the original magnesium alloy fire starter. The Swedish FireSteel fire starter offered the first viable solution to the challenges of starting fires at high-altitudes and in low temperatures. With its ability to ignite flammable gas or liquid directly, the Swedish FireSteel fire starter is perfect for traditional alcohol and modern gas stoves. This has led to its adoption by a large number of military units all over the world. Manufactured in Sweden by Light My Fire, the 2.0 Scout fire starter has evolved with design improvements including a precision stainless steel striker, ergonomic care for, and a built-in emergency whistle.

How it Works

The Swedish FireSteel 2.0 Scout fire starter is composed of two basic parts – the rod and the striker. The rod is made from a high-quality pyrophoric alloy containing metals that include iron, magnesium, lanthanum and cerium. The striker is made of stainless steel and has a precise edge grind developed to deliver maximum spark. By scraping the striker against the rod, the friction ignites tiny shavings of metal, converting them to oxides and generating bright, high-temperature sparks.

Ultimate Fire Starters

Two notable differences exist between the Swedish FireSteel fire starter and similar friction-based fire starters, ceaselessly called Ferro cerium rods. First is the proprietary hardening process of the alloy, which produces a high-grade material that achieves durability without sacrificing consistency. Second is the composition of the alloy itself, which contains a superior mixture of materials that results in a higher temperature spark: 2,980° C (5,400° F). The higher temperature spark is more effective at starting fires and lighting stoves in any weather and at any altitude.

Advantages of the Swedish FireSteel

The primary advantage of a Swedish FireSteel fire starter over other fire starting tools is reliability in any situation. The Swedish FireSteel 2.0 Scout fire starter is robust and requires no flints, lighter fluid, batteries or replacement parts. A Swedish FireSteel fire starter will work in harsh conditions, like extreme cold, where gas does not vaporize easily, making it difficult to light. It also offers predictable performance at any altitude, unlike a butane lighter, which is affected by both dampness and reduced oxygen at altitude. The spark of the Swedish FireSteel fire starter is bright enough for use as an emergency signal. The striker and rod are tied along with a lanyard to prevent accidental separation and are compact enough to slot in a pocket. The Scout’s bright colors will also be easily spotted on the ground or in your kit. The durable construction of the 2.0 Scout model is designed to last approximately 3,000 strikes, providing an outstanding value.

Applications

The Swedish FireSteel 2.0 Scout fire starter can be utilized in various applications – from essential survival gear to lighting a backyard barbeque grill. Because the 2.0 Scout weighs only 27 grams, it is the ideal tool to have along when hiking, camping, or even in your car in case of emergencies. Alpinists appreciate the reliability of the Swedish FireSteel 2.0 Scout fire starter at any altitude, and outdoor enthusiasts recognize the value of an all-weather, easy to use tool. For an even more durable solution, Light My Fire also offers the more robust Swedish FireSteel 2.0 Army model fire starter, which is designed to last 12,000 strikes.
