BlastMatch $21.95

Designed for all-weather use, this fire-starting system performs superbly in the most extreme marine, arctic, desert, and jungle environments. The Ultimate Survival BlastMatch was designed for Air Force fighter pilots at risk of being shot down in rugged terrain, or the mountain climber contending with challenging alpine weather. People like these need a fire starter that is operable with one hand in case of injury, won't surprise you by running out of fuel, and never fails to light in the wind, rain, or snow.  This durable, lightweight tool so innovative it has a U.S. patent.

The BlastMatch generates a stream of sparks three times the heat of a standard match and easily will light any material (wood, paper, bark, cloth, or man-made fire starting tinders) that a match will ignite. You can accurately aim the sparks to ignite a roaring fire in any weather conditions.

If the BlastMatch becomes wet, simply wipe it off and it is ready for use. In combination with WetFire Tinder, you can start a fire even in the driving rain.

At the heart of the BlastMatch is a custom bar of high performance flint material. Spring loaded, the flint bar also rotates 360 degrees to help prevent uneven wear and tear. A tungsten carbide striker built into the striker button is set at the perfect angle for maximum sparking - taking the guess work out of starting a fire.

Incorporated into the BlastMatch is a safety feature to prevent inadvertent ignition when accidentally plunged. The unique design requires the operator to press the thumb button in order to engage the striker mechanism.
