Product Description

SE is proud to present our Magnesium Fire Starter with Compass—the perfect addition to your gear for camping, hiking, trekking, boating, hunting, etc., as well as for keeping in your emergency/survival kits. As an added bonus feature, we have included a mini compass to help you stay on course.

Features of this product include:
1) Compact dimensions: 3” x ⅜” x 1”
2) Solid magnesium body (silver color)
3) Flint striking rod (black color)
4) Serrated metal striker (green color)
5) Mini compass, size: 4.5mm x 20mm dia.
6) Detachable ball chain

How to use the fire starter:
1) Gather tinder—twigs, dead branches, dry bark, grass, pine needles, lint or paper.
2) Hold the magnesium rod at an angle above your tinder pile.
3) Use the striker to scrape along the length of the magnesium rod to create shavings.
4) Let the shavings fall onto your tinder pile.
5) Keep scraping until you’ve scraped a pile of shavings approximately the size of a quarter.
6) Hold the flint at an angle over the pile of magnesium shavings, and then forcefully slide your striker along the length of the flint to create sparks.
7) Continue to slide your striker against the flint until the sparks you’ve created land directly onto the pile of magnesium shavings & tinder and ignite the fire.
8) Once ignited, blow gently on the magnesium shavings to spread the flames to the rest of your tinder.

Please note for first-time use:
Scrape the layer of paint off the magnesium before using it to start a fire.
