Ultimate Survival BlastMatch Fire Starter
If you spend time outdoors
you should have a fire starter. Why not carry the one packed by those most at risk of
facing extreme conditions?
Designed for all-weather use, this revolutionary flint
based fire starting system performs superbly in the most extreme marine, arctic, desert,
and jungle environments. The Ultimate Survival Technologies' BlastMatch was designed for
Air Force fighter pilots at risk of being shot down in rugged terrain, or the mountain
climber contending with challenging alpine weather. People like these need a fire starter
that is operable with one hand in case of injury, won't surprise you by running out of
fuel, and never fails to light in the wind, rain, or snow. Why would you want anything
less than the best?
The patented BlastMatch generates a stream of super heated
sparks literally three times the heat of a standard match. You can easily light any
material (wood, paper, bark, cloth, or man-made fire starting tinder) that a match will
ignite. Best of all, you can accurately aim the sparks to ignite a roaring fire in all
weather conditions, and the BlastMatch will last a thousand strikes.
BlastMatch becomes wet, simply wipe it off and it is ready for use. In combination with
Ultimate Survival Technologies' WetFire Tinder, an all weather starting tinder, you can
start a fire even in the driving rain.
At the heart of the BlastMatch is a
custom bar of high performance flint material. Spring loaded for compactness, the flint
bar also rotates 360 degrees to help prevent uneven wear. A carbide striker built into
the striker button is set at the perfect angle for maximum sparking - making it easy
for you to start a fire.
The BlastMatch is also perfectly safe. To prevent
accidental ignition the unique design requires you to press the thumb button in order
to engage the striker mechanism.
