Product Description

The Friendly Swede® Magnesium Fire Starters [3 PACK]

The Friendly Swede's Magnesium Firestarters are an essential piece of any survival/outdoor kit - waterproof, durable and easy to use. Never leave home without one!

CONTENTS
Three 3" x 1" Solid Magnesium and Flint Blocks
Three Serrated Metal Striker Saws
Three 17.5" Chains

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Using the flat edge of the striker, shave the magnesium block to create a small pile of magnesium.
2. Prepare your tinder next to the magnesium pile.
3. Hold the flat edge of the striker against the top of the flint at a 45° angle. Slide firmly down the flint to create sparks. Allow sparks to fall onto magnesium pile.
4. Use magnesium to ignite tinder. Place burning tinder into fire. Don't suffocate the fire - build fire slowly using small pieces of wood.

Just perfect for my son who is a scout. One of the most basic element for survival is to be able to make a fire.

Unlike other magnesium fire starter that looks like an over-sized key, this pack gives you three big 3" x 1" magnesium bars with embedded flint on one side. This will last for a long time.

Also included are steel chains to chain the magnesium and the striker. The striker can also double as a small saw.

Magnesium is highly flammable as a powder or shavings but not in solid form. So this makes it a safe fire starter compared to matches or lighters. It is waterproof and practically indestructible. Not only it is very effective, it is also a very fun way to make a fire.

How to make a fire:
The only trick is to makes sure you have an ample amount of shavings. About the size of a penny should be sufficient. Have your tinder or paper ready and with just a couple of strikes and you can start a bonfire.

Color Name: Magnesium Fire Starters - Older Version Verified Purchase
I bought these so I could teach my family how to start a fire without matches or lighters. With the recent snow storm I was able to show how effective these are at starting a fire with wet and ice cold materials (i.e. Wood and kindling). I made a quarter sized pile of magnesium filings and placed it next to and a bit under the wet kindling. Two strikes of the ferro rod later and POOF we had a flame. I moved the kindling right over the 1500 degree flame of the magnesium and the kindling took the flame fast. We had to baby the kindling a bit and not overwhelm the small flame but about 30 seconds later we moved some larger twigs and then about 1 minute later had a strong enough flame that we could begin placing sticks about 1 inch in diameter on the now strong fire. All-in-all it was such a great way to teach my wife and children about how to use them and that they can have confidence that if managed with wisdom they could even get wet materials to turn into a life-saving fire using the magnesium & ferro rod combo.

Excellent product which helped teach a valuable life lesson! You should buy one today

Enjoy the outdoors or are you a survivalist dooms day prepper preparing for the unknown? Well if you answered yes to either question then you better stock up on fire starters and these are a pretty sweet deal. You get three magnesium fire starters with their own individual striker and extra long chains.

With the right tinder you will be able to start a fire in any type of weather condition, from snow to rain - The Friendly Swede Magnesium Fire Starters will give you a spark! The attached video will show you how you first need to remove the black coating to expose the magnesium. Then after carving off some magnesium shavings to ignite your tinder faster, it normally only takes one spark to ignite the fire. Much more reliable than matches or lighters that can get moist and can not function properly.

Lifetime Warranty.

Color Name: Magnesium Fire Starters - Older Version Verified Purchase
Received the fire starters this morning and immediately unpacked them to take them for a test drive. All three bars are packed in individual resealable cellophane packets. I only took out one bar for testing. The bars have a protectant oil on them you will need to wipe off before using, easily done with a paper towel. There are three strikers/shavers and three sets of chains for each bar and striker.

I took a paper towel and the fire starter out onto my back porch and got started. The weather today was fairly windy so I had my doubts about how things would turn out. The included striker/scrapper worked flawlessly. I scrapped off a small pile of magnesium into the crumpled paper towel, placed the striker and bar by my pile and a gust of wind shifted my paper towel dislodging my shavings. I didn't scrape any more magnesium, instead, I shook what was left of my original shavings back into a pile and tried again. Remarkably, the sparks from th striker ignited the tiny remains of the magnesium and the paper towel caught on fire and burned up.

I am very impressed with this little product. My wife and I have one each for our BOB's and an additional one. My only complaint are the chains for the strikers and bars. Instead of one chain to connect them together, there are four separate small chains connected together making each chain. Besides that, thus is a Great product which I will recommend.

Color Name: Magnesium Fire Starters - Older Version Verified Purchase
Magnesium fire starters are available about everywhere and basic ones are usually fairly inexpensive. My desire was to have a few of these available for that if/when time when it may come in handy, so getting three of them as a package deal made me happy; I'll toss one in the truck with the other "emergency" stuff, one in my camping gear and leave one on a shelf in case I need it.

Compared to similar items, this one has one big advantage; the extra long chain. Most have a very short chain that makes using the striker impossible to use unless you take it apart. Now I usually replace the striker with a piece of hack saw blade and replace a chain with 550 cord, but those mod's are just a preference. The stock item will function as is.

The Friendly Swede is truly friendly, too! He'll follow up to ensure your satisfaction and I, for one, appreciate that contact. If there had been an issue with the product he wanted to know about it so he could make it right.
