The Fire Piston is a Proven Fire-Starting Tool

Machined from a solid piece of 6061 aluminum with brass end caps, the Fire Piston is a unique fire starting tool whose origins can be traced back to the mid-1700’s.  It uses the heat generated from rapidly compressing the air to ignite a piece of tinder, which can then be used to light kindling. 3 styles are available—including two which feature a built-in ferro rod and striker. Small for EDC or any emergency kit, pack or “go bag.” Made In the USA.
