Using Light My Fire Swedish FireSteel

Here’s a video that demonstrates how to use the firesteel firestarter.  I highly recommend the Light My Fire Original Swedish FireSteel Army firestarter which can do up to 12,000 strikes.  The scout version only does up to 3,000 strikes and is not that much less expensive.

My son (12) and daughter (10) can both use this to start a fire.  It’s great to practice when lighting cotton balls and they have a lot of fun with it too.  To get best results, make sure you pull the firesteel towards you while holding the striker still as he does in this video.
