Generate a Shower of Sparks with a Single Hand

Originally created for the survival packs of Air Force fighter pilots, the BlastMatch Fire Starter is designed to generate sparks in any weather conditions and at any altitude. Now available to anyone, this reliable fire starter is an absolute necessity for all emergency kits.

Unlike other fire starting devices, the BlastMatch Fire Starter features a revolutionary one-handed, rotating design. While one hand uses the BlastMatch Fire Starter to generate sparks, your other hand can cover your tinder for added protection from wind and rain.

The carbide striker is set at the perfect angle to concentrate and guide the sparks right onto your tinder so you can get your fire started instantly with one single-handed pass.

Lightweight and Heavy-Duty

Strong enough to withstand 4,000 solid strikes, the BlastMatch Fire Starter remains lightweight and extremely portable.

Slightly larger than an ordinary cigarette lighter, the massive sparks created by this compact fire starter are three times hotter than the heat of a standard match.

The BlastMatch Fire Starter sparks and ignites an array of tinder, such as bark, straw, cloth and WetFire Tinder so you can count on it to start a fire when you need it most.

A protective case and cover made of sturdy ABS plastic shields the flint and striker to avoid any accidental sparks.

With a cutting-edge yet simple to use design, you can count on the BlastMatch Fire Starter to quickly generate sparks to get a roaring fire started with a single strike in any situation.

Great flint and steel fire starter. Easy to use, compact, and light weight. It produces a lot of sparks like it says, and the push movement makes for accurate sparks so your tender catches faster.

Blaine M.


Works everytime. Bought two, one in the RV and one in the backpack.



Yep, you definitely need one of these in your pack. Simple and easy to use. I could smell my coffee brewing in no time at all.
