Designed for all-weather use, this revolutionary flint based fire starting system performs just as well in the most extreme environments as it does when starting the backyard barbeque. The Ultimate Survival Technologies’ 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 spark in the wind, rain, or snow.
The patented BlastMatch™ generates a stream of super heated sparks literally three times the heat of a standard match. You can easily light any material (wood, paper, bark, cloth, or man-made fire starting tinder) that a match will ignite. The BlastMatch™ will last a thousand strikes.
If your BlastMatch™ becomes wet, simply wipe it off and it is ready for use. In combination with WetFire Tinder™, an all weather starting 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 for compactness, the flint bar also rotates 360 degrees to help prevent uneven wear. A carbide striker built into the striker button is set at the perfect angle for maximum sparking - making it easy for you to start a fire.
To prevent accidental ignition the unique design requires you to press the thumb button in order to engage the striker mechanism.
