Ever wish you could reliably light a campfire without matches, lighter or magnesium? Would you believe it can be done in under 30 seconds with no effort? Using air and the heat of compression this remarkable device creates a burning ember with a single push.
The fire piston represents the most amazing and effective fire starting method ever conceived. Similar to the diesel engine, air molecules within the cylinder become hot when rapidly compressed.
With a single push, tinder placed in the end of the piston is ignited by the heat of compression, instantly becoming a glowing ember with no more effort than lighting a match.
The fire piston can be used to ignite a variety of tinder's including true tinder fungus, mullein pith, milkweed pod, fomes fomentarius ( hoof fungus ) wood punk and charcloth.
The New SECOND GENERATION FIRE PISTONS (patent pending) feature state of the art technology. "O Ring" seal reliability and fire lighting performance capability that is simply incredible.... and integral pressure relief valve that allows the trapped air to be released yet that is easily re-sealed, enabling full compression for fire lighting. Once the valve is closed, the piston is effectively trapped by vacuum preventing its accidental loss in the field.
