If 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?

The 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 a thousand strikes.

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 cus tom 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.

Comments about Ultimate Survival Ultimate Survival Blast Match Fire Starter:

The Blast Match performed well starting four fires. It does produce a lot of hot sparks that will start well dried tender quit easily. When I was starting my fifth fire the two plastic halves surrounding the metal steel shank simply came detached from each other and the tool fell completely apart. When the tool collapsed in my hand the fire striker was bent backwards and it being plastic was damaged. There was no practical fix. If you wrap para cord line around it or tape that will temporarily get you thru a situation but you lose the ability to fold it back into its own self contained unit. The unit didn't produce spark as well after it was damaged. I contacted Survival Technologies a week ago, but have got no response back.[...]I've owned it one year so I don't expect any help. The bottom line is that it just worked 4 times so you probably don't want to take this into a survival situation. It's something better for the back yard.
