U.S. Government-Department of Defense (DOD) Issue Magnesium Fire Starter
Rothco's G.I. (Government Issue) Aviation Fire Starter has a magnesium shaving edge and sparking insert. A G.I. would use their issued knife or bayonet as a striking steel. Carried by military aircrews, soldiers, sailors, and airmen. An important tool for survival in the wilderness where 3 things are important heat, shelter, water and food. A pocket size tool that can handle a big job. Dependable, simple to use and convenient. This fire starter is a great tool for any outdoor or survival/emergency situation or your bug out bag.
Owner Personal Note: I carried one in my pack every time I deployed, a small but very useful tool that fits in your pocket or pouch nicely. Field tested and approved.
