The Light My Fire Firesteel 2.0 takes the ever popular Light My Fire Steel and removes weight and bulk whilst improving ergonomics. The redesigned striker is more compact and comfortable to use and also contains an emergency whistle, it can't be seen in any of the images and we had to get one out of the packet to believe it.. This makes the camping accessory for those who want the most dependable possible equipment.
Please Note: The Army version of the Firesteel comes in two sizes the Army being the larger in both width and length.

Still the best fire steel on the market. Never fails to produce plumes of sparks in any weather.
No room for rubbish in your pack when weight is a premium, but one of these is a must and a safety net. If your lighter fails you can use this to make a fire in no time even when hypothermia is taking hold. Great facewest service Also great for lighting the stove as sparks are hot hot
I got the Lightmyfire Firesteel in the Scout model for a touring trip this winter and I used it daily for making fire, it worked fine in all conditions. Even a couple of very wet nights.
In the future, anyways, I will carry a normal lighter so I can use my Light my fire for emergency uses only, and no waste that way the three thousand strokes.
I am planning to cook daily with my stove, and it will be my ally for making sure I have a warm meal every day.
One more time, happy with a product of this brand.
How I ever lived without this I don't know as it's helped perfect my fire lighting skills and not fall back on all those lazy methods e.g fire lighters and a match. With good tinder choice and a bit of Maya dust I'm always successful using the firesteel, it's easy to do with a bit of practice and looks really impressive to those around you too. I especially like the wooden handle as it's less plastic in appearance.
I bought one of these in the winter to overcome the problem with my Jetboil's ignition not working at altitude and low temperatures. The Firesteel worked every time, even when wet. I recently misplaced it and had no hesitation in ordering another from Facewest.
A must have bit of kit. Used on my Primus burner many times and never fails. although you do need to get the hang of it first. The only down side is that I really struggled to light my meths burning Trangia in the mornings when the meths was cold.
Brilliant bit of kit! Produces hot, reliable sparks every time which will easily light a camp stove. This doesn't wear down nearly as fast as other, similar, flints I have owned in the past. Although the cord is useful to connect them, I found the one which comes pre-fitted too short, but it's nothing cheap accessory cord can't fix!
I had a flint and I had a knife and often one or the other was in a different place. One of my kayaking chums used his Lightmyfire Firesteel when we were paddling Loch Etive and lit a fire in a bothy using this, a tiny firelighter and a lump of compressed horse bedding, instantly. I was so impressed I bought one the next day.
Nice thing is it sparks easily and consistently, everything is in the one place (and there is a whistle too) so it stays in my PFD pocket. Low cost and can be used to light stoves too, should be compulsory equipment for any outing.
This is heavier than a light strip of matches so I needed to justify including it in my mountain marathon kit list. It had the perfect trial in Snowdonia on a windy wet evening when I needed to get my pocket rocket stove started. It is tricky to get the hang of but with a bit of practice you can get a good spark and it lit my stove against all the odds. Having ridiculed the Lightmyfire my friend failed with matches and we both agreed the Lightmyfire goes on the kit list. It is harder to get a proper fire started though, as you need dry tinder to catch the spark and practice is definitely needed.
