Fire Starter


Exotac Nanostriker Fire Starter - collapsible self-contained fire starter.



Exotac set out to create a product that is high quality, ultra-small in size and completely self-contained.  The nanoSTRIKER is the result.  Sacrificing neither form nor function, its unique all-in-one design puts all the tools you need to start a fire into one tiny package.  At the end of the day, this little tool can be collapsed and returned to key-chain ballast duty.

The striker contains an ultra-sharp tungsten carbide insert for maximum sparks.

Ferrocerium fire starters work best with tinder materials that contain large surface areas: dry grasses, wood shavings, cotton balls, dry leaves, clothing lint, etc.  Using a tinder material of your choosing, create a loose tinder bundle to catch the sparks from the ferro rod.  Wrap the included lanyard around a few fingers to secure the striker handle.  Holding the striking tool at an angle, use moderate pressure to quickly scrape the rod.  The striker should be carving material off the ferrocerium rod.
