WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF LIGHT MY FIRE
At the heart of our company we have one purpose; to create products that reconnect us with nature, wherever we are. We combine design and functionality with the joy of adventure and new experience.
From lunch breaks in local parks, to meals whilst hiking in vast forests. From family grills in city gardens to cooking on the peaks of mountain ranges, our dream remains the same: To enjoy the beauty of the outdoors, to think of generations to come, to encourage the exploration of forgotten skills and to rediscover, the art of fire.
LETS TALK MATERIALS
Sustainability may well be a buzzword but what does it actually mean? For Light My Fire the answer is simple. It is the potential to balance our needs and aspirations without the negative exploitation of the environment.
A sustainable approach to materials, transportation, production, CSR, design and distribution creates a positive and vibrant business model where sustainability itself is a resource.
MADE IN SWEDEN, SUSTAINABILITY, AND DESIGN
Winters are long and summers are quite often chilly in Sweden. And yet, we Swedes love spending time outdoors, in the woods, on the beach, in the mountains. We’re blessed with a country that isn’t just breathtakingly beautiful and varied, it’s also open to everybody. This makes us very aware of nature - and the environment - from an early age.
Swedish design has always been known for quality combined with functionality. At Light My Fire we’re doing our very best to continue this tradition and develop new exciting products that let you make the most of the outdoors, whether you’re in the city or far from civilization.
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 numerous military units around the world. Manufactured in Sweden by Light My Fire, the fire starter has evolved with design improvements including a precision stainless steel striker, ergonomic handle, and a built-in emergency whistle.
HOW IT WORKS
The Swedish FireSteel 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.The notable difference between the Swedish FireSteel fire starter and similar friction-based fire starters, often called Ferro cerium rods is the proprietary hardening process of the alloy, which produces a high-grade material that achieves durability without sacrificing consistency.
HOW TO START A LIGHT MY FIRE FIRE
1. Collect small sticks, bark and other kindling. The smaller the better, as it will be easier to light.
2. Arrange into a small pile.
3. Take out your Swedish FireSteel or Swedish FireKnife, with a built-in FireSteel.
4. Use paper, birch-bark or ideally take out your TinderSticks or Tinder-on-a-rope, made from farmed Honduran pine, scrape some shavings and arrange them among the kindling. With 80% resin, it is the optimal ignition fuel that will burn extremely hot and slow – and can also withstand moisture and water.
5. Carefully build up the fire, first with small sticks and then gradually increase its size. Ensure the fire has enough oxygen and be patient.
ADVANTAGES AND APPLICATIONS
The primary advantage of a Swedish FireSteel fire starter over other fire starting tools is reliability in any situation. The Swedish FireSteel 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 to be used as an emergency signal. The striker and rod are tied together with a lanyard to prevent accidental separation and are compact enough to fit in a pocket.
The beautifully crafted Swedish FireKnife is made in, of and by Sweden. A sustainably produced bioplastic mix combining coconut shell fibres, creates a magnificent experience of texture, look and natural smell. The superior Sandvik stainless steel blade is 90% recycled steel: everything you need whether cutting rope, shaving kindling or slicing apple for the kids. The handle holds an all-weather-proof Swedish FireSteel: up to 3000 strikes at 5.400°F/2.980°C. Light fires, ignite gas stoves, prepare meals, include the whole family and rediscover ancient skills with this fantastic multifunctional tool. Reliable durability in a timeless design. For every home, wherever you make it.

Our family loves to backpack and this is a great all around tool to have on such a trip for several reasons. First of all they are very lightweight. I know some ultralight backpackers who try to shave off weight by carrying super small knives or even just a razor blade, this is so much more useful and even with the sheath only weighs 3.9 ounces. Second, the blade is amazing! It comes ultra sharp and will take a new edge very easily if it dulls. The only time I have ever had to rework an edge on mine was after loaning it to a couple of scouts who weren't listening, (and I forgot how closely you have to watch them sometimes, sigh) and they used the blade to scrape the rod for sparks! Grrrrr! Well, a little time with my sharpening stone and we're back to shaving sharp. So far, any mora knife could claim this though, my third reason for loving these is the ferrocomium rod integrated into the handle. I have used many different brands of these rods, they are available widely, but this one has been the most consistent one with the most sparks. It makes lighting up a cotton ball super quick and easy for lighting a campfire and it creates a nice enough shower of sparks that it will light any gas stove I care to use it on.
So is this the only knife you need? That's a personal question. If I could only take one out backpacking I would probably choose this one myself. Personally, I like to have back ups for my tools and essentials like fire starting, and for that alone this is wonderful. It's a great tool that fills the need well. I personally keep one in my EDC bag and another in my vehicle (for that occasional wild apple that needs slicing) I have never been disappointed when I have needed a good knife or a fire starter and I have reached for this tool.
He put it to use for the first time yesterday and it was really impressive. Like all Mora's it came hair shaving sharp out of the box. I opted for the lime green color so it would be visible in the woods if it was dropped.
Someone was about to light the campfire with a Bic Lighter, but I stopped him and suggested that the bachelor try out his new knife. The Light My Fire fire steel worked like a charm. After three precise strikes on our makeshift tinder (dryer lint stuffed in a cardboard toilet paper roll that I dabbed with some Carmex lip balm), the tinder ignited and provided the starting base for our fire that we kept roaring through the night for about 15 friends from HS and College. We had a great time around the camp fire cooking and drinking, talking about old times and the future and busting each others' chops as good friends do. And it all started with the Light My Fire/Mora Knife. He and I were both very satisfied with the gift.
This knife definitely shouldn't be abused and used for heavy duty bushcraft, but it is perfect for light duty tasks pertaining to anglers, campers, hikers, and the like for the practicality and quality.

Second the fire steel lights first time every time. With such a bright spark I have to close my eyes, when using it in the dark.
Feels solid yet is vey light. Replacment fire steels are readaly avalible.
