Magnesium Fire Starter
An essential for every camping or backpacking trip, Coghlan’s magnesium fire starter provides sufficient shavings to start hundreds of fires.
Easy to use, just scrape the starter with a knife to ignite shaving and start a fire with a flame source of 5400 degrees.
Coghlan iteration of the fire starter is fireproof, waterproof, simple and dependable. With the included steel blade, users shave the magnesium block so that there’s a mound of magnesium ash. They then strike the blade against the block’s flint side, creating a spark and igniting the shavings. Then cover the smoldering ash with a pile of tinder, and boom — fire.
