To Ignite Gas – Turn on the gas, shower sparks into the ignition area.

Tips on Using the Strike Master Survival Tool

  • Place the tip of the fire starter firmly on the ground
  • Hold scraper at an angle to rest of fire starter
  • For best results, the flint bar should be nearly touching the tinder
  • If the scraper is lost, a knife, broken piece of glass, chipped rock, or any hard sharp edge will work in it’s place
  • Tinder includes:moss, dead grass, pine needles, leaves, wood shavings, steel wool, cloth, paper, etc.
  • With some models shavings from the wooden handle make excellent tinder
