The Light My Fire Swedish FireSteel Army 2in1 is all you need to light your fire like a bushcraft pro in any weather.

First developed for the Swedish Department of Defence, the legendary Light My Fire Swedish FireSteel Army 2in1 is the original magnesium alloy fire starter. It offered the first viable solution to the challenges of starting fires at high-altitudes and in low temperatures. With its ability to ignite flammable gas or liquid directly, the Light My Fire Swedish FireSteel Army 2in1 is perfect for traditional alcohol and modern gas stoves. This has led to its adoption by numerous military units around the world. Manufactured in Sweden by Light My Fire, the fire starter has evolved with design improvements including a precision stainless steel striker, ergonomic handle, and a built-in emergency whistle.

The Light My Fire Swedish FireSteel Army 2in1 is composed of two basic parts – the rod and the striker. The rod is made from a high-quality pyrophoric alloy containing metals that include iron, magnesium, lanthanum and cerium. The striker is made of stainless steel and has a precise edge grind developed to deliver maximum spark. By scraping the striker against the rod, the friction ignites tiny shavings of metal, converting them to oxides and generating bright, high-temperature sparks.The notable difference between the Light My Fire Swedish FireSteel Army 2in1 and similar friction-based fire starters, often called Ferro cerium rods is the proprietary hardening process of the alloy, which produces a high-grade material that achieves durability without sacrificing consistency.
