Designed initially for Air Force fighter pilots at risk at being shot down in rugged terrain, the UST BlastMatch™ is a revolutionary flint fire starting system (US Patent # 5,919,037) performs in the most extreme environments.
This one-handed flint fire starter generates a stream of sparks 3 times the heat of a standard match. It can easily ignite any light material. Best of all you can accurately aim the sparks to ignite a fire in all weather conditions. It's perfectly safe due to its design that requires you to press the thumb button in order to engage the striker mechanism.
Weighing less than 3 oz., the BlastMatch™ will last up to 4,000 strikes and features a flint bar that rotates 360 degrees to prevent uneven wear. Spring loaded this firestarter features a carbide striker built into the striker button and is set at the optimal angle for maximum sparking.
