The Aurora Fire Starter (Patent Pending) is manufactured by Solo Scientific in the USA, is rugged, and is designed for survival. The Aurora Fire Starter uses a large 1/4″ diameter (.635cm) composite flint steel rod that has magnesium built into it. The built-in blade could be a lifesaver! You can wear the lightweight Aurora Fire Starter on your key ring or around your neck on a lanyard and if you are ever separated from your pack or knife you will still have everything you need to start a fire. The built-in blade takes off enough material to start a fire but will not cause excessive wear, can be flipped over to reveal a fresh striking surface (Note: our NEW 440C striking blades will yield thousands of strikes before needing to be flipped), or be sharpened if dulled. Also see our optional Super Alloy Blade below. Our built-in blade is part of the unit and will not get caught on equipment or rattle in combat or while hunting like other fire starters that have a blade hanging from a string. The Aurora Fire Starter is designed to function wet or dry, is machined from solid light weight aluminum (NO PLASTIC!), is knurled for grip, and will not break when you need it most. The Aurora Fire Starter has an overall length of 3.6″ (9.14cm) a diameter of .625″ (1.59cm), weighs 1/10lb.(45g), has an o-ring seal to prevent the housing from unscrewing and provide protection from corrosion in salt water environments. The Aurora Fire Starter is designed to last a life time and provide you with fire when the emergency situation occurs. The Aurora Fire Starter comes complete with detailed instructions and several pieces of fire starting material.
