Item #
  • $ 3499


Made in the USA. Self contained fire starter. Works in any environment. This magnesium fire starter is designed to function under the most extreme conditions and is made from corrosion resistant high strength materials, and, will be your faithful fire starter for many years. Made of knurled anodized aluminum. Includes a cylinder with built in stainless steel blade at the outside base which is struck by the .25" thick ferro-magnesium rod, creating a spark. The cylinder and rod screw together and meet at an o-ring creating a waterproof seal to protect the rod from corrosion. Guided striking blade at base to maximize spark. Comes with a water resistant container.

Many different techniques for making fire (also called firemaking, firelighting or firecraft) exist. One such device is known as the Aurora Fire Starter. Once a fire is made with the aurora fire starter it must be transferred to a larger tinder, such as a bundle of dried grass, tablet cubes, etc.

To use your Aurora Magnesium Fire Starter unscrew the larger of the two sections that make up the starter. Doing this will reveal the fire starting rod enclosed. Hold the smaller section of the product in one hand and the larger section of it in the other hand as shown in figure 1. Next position the striking blade mounted on the top of the larger section of the starter against the fire starting rod so that the fire starting rod rests inside the 45 degree angled notch as shown in figure 2. This places the fire starting rod in the optimum position to start a fire. While holding the smaller section of the Aurora magnesium fire starter firmly in one hand scrape the fire starting rod with the top corner edge of the striking blade (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT) in a fast smooth manner while pressing firmly against the blade and maintaining the optimum 45 degree angle. You will notice that when done properly the Aurora Fire Starter will emit incredibly bright and hot sparks that will burn and ignite any suitable fire starting material. We recommend that you have fun getting to know your Aurora magnesium fire starter by igniting the fire starting material included - only a small amount of the included material is needed. Cotton balls and dryer filter lint are great fire starting material! Note: After prolonged use the striking blade can be flipped over to reveal a fresh striking surface. To do this simply remove the top screw holding the striking blade in place, flip the blade horizontally, and then re-secure the striking blade with screw - the striking blade may also be sharpened.
