Fire-Fast Trekker Survival Fire Starter Product Review

The Fire-Fast is one of the best fire starters on the market. It’s a little more expensive than other similar fire starters, but it’s worth the extra expense!

The Fire-Fast Trekker is beautifully made with 3 inches long solid wood handle for easy gripping even if you’re wearing gloves! This fire starter has one of the largest flints of any fire starter at half an inch wide. Wider flints are great because they create fast sparks for easy fire starting.

This fire starter replaces the need for matches and lighters because it works even in the wettest conditions. The wood handle is perfect because if you can’t find any tinder, you can shave some wood from the handle and use that.

The military-grade magnesium rod is used to create a burst of intense heat, kickstarting the flame. Plus, this fire starter is sturdy, tough, and will withstand all kinds of abuse. You drop it in the river, on rocks, from a height, and it will keep working without falling apart.
