Cool Swedish FireSteel

Swedish FireSteel (Army and Scout models)
http://www.light-my-fire.com

Originally developed for the Swedish Department of Defense, Swedish FireSteel is a flash of genius. Its 3,000°C spark makes fire building easy in any weather, at any altitude. Used by a number of armies around the world, Swedish FireSteel’s dependability has already made it a favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen and campers. It has also found its way into cabins and backyards as a fool-proof way to light stoves and gas-barbecues.
- Durable – lasts for from 3,000 to 12,000 strikes (Scout/Army model)
- Works equally well when wet
- Premium quality
- No “dangerous goods” shipping restrictions
- Approved by the International Survival Instructors Association
- Produces a 3000°C (5,500°F) spark
- Lights campfires, stoves, gas-barbecues
- Great as a give-away, easy to add own logo
- Bright spark – can be used as emergency signal

The SL3 is not only well thought out, it is rugged enough to live up to its slogan: Built for Life.

I wonder how many research dollars and development costs went into them rediscovering flint and steel.
