p>Blast Match™ Fire Starter
Everyone who goes outside should have a fire starter. Why not carry
the one packed by those most at risk of facing extreme conditions?
Designed for all-weather use, this fire-starting system performs
superbly in the most extreme marine, arctic, desert, and jungle
environments. The Ultimate Survival Blast Match 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, won't surprise you by running out of fuel, and never
fails to light in the wind, rain, or snow.
Inc.'s Product Development Team, led by a former U.S. Air Force
survival training expert, crafted a durable, lightweight tool so
innovative it has a U.S. patent. The Blast Match generates a stream of
sparks three times the heat of a standard match and easily will light
any material (wood, paper, bark, cloth, or man-made fire starting
tinders) that a match will ignite. You can accurately aim the sparks to
ignite a roaring fire in any weather conditions.
If the Blast Match becomes wet, simply wipe it off and it is ready
for use. In combination with Ultimate Survival's Wet Fire Starting
Tinder, you can start a fire even in the driving rain.
At the heart of the Blast Match 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 and tear. A tungsten
carbide striker build into the striker button is set at the perfect
angle for maximum sparking - taking the guess work out of starting a
Incorporated into the Blast Match is a safety feature to prevent
inadvertent ignition when accidentally plunged. The unique design
requires the operator to press the thumb button in order to engage the
striker mechanism. As with all Ultimate Survival products, the Blast
Match has a lifetime warrantee, and will be replaced if you ever wear
