The BlastMatch Firestarter by Ultimate Survival Technologies was designed for all-weather use, and this revolutionary flint based fire starting system performs superbly in the most extreme marine, arctic, desert, and jungle environments. 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, wont surprise you by running out of fuel, and never fails to light in the wind, rain, or snow. Why would you want anything less than the best?
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. Best of all, you can accurately aim the sparks to ignite a roaring fire in all weather conditions, and 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 Ultimate Survival Technologies 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.
The BlastMatch is also perfectly safe. To prevent accidental ignition the unique design requires you to press the thumb button in order to engage the striker mechanism.
