you spend time outdoors, you 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 revolutionary flint based fire
starting system performs superbly in the most extreme marine, arctic,
desert, and jungle environments. The Ultimate Survival Technologies’
BlastMatch™ 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. Why would you want anything less than the best?
patented BlastMatch™ generates a stream of super heated sparks
literally three times the heat of a standard match. You can easily
light any material (wood, paper, bark, cloth, or man-made fire
starting tinder) that a match will ignite. Best of all, you can
accurately aim the sparks to ignite a roaring fire in all weather
conditions, and the BlastMatch™ will last up to a an amazing 4,000
STRIKES. You can't beat that!
If your BlastMatch™ becomes wet, simply wipe it off and it is
ready for use. In combination with Ultimate Survival Technologies’
WetFire Tinder™, an all weather starting tinder, you can start a fire
even in the driving rain.
At the heart of the BlastMatch™ 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. A carbide
striker built into the striker button is set at the perfect angle for
maximum sparking - making it easy for you to start a fire.
The BlastMatch™ is also perfectly safe. To prevent accidental
ignition the unique design requires you to press the thumb button in
order to engage the striker mechanism.
