Why Have a FireSteel Part One
Why Have a FireSteel Part Two
Why you Should Have a FireSteel Part 1 we learned something about the kind of people who make sure
they always have a FireSteel.com FireSteel available. These include:
- The Military of All Branches
- Hikers and BackPackers
- Mountain Bikers
- Hunters, Fishermen, and Trappers
- Survival and BushCraft Enthusiasts
- The Special Effects and Movie
- Homeowners for barbecues, fireplaces,
wood stoves, and more
Whether it be for emergency use or
simply to light up the family barbecue, our FireSteels serve to
ensure you can always start a fire when you need one.
Here are some important factors to
consider when you are thinking to buy a FireSteel from FireSteel.com:
Matches Have a Shelf Life
Matches have a shelf life. Many people
do not know that. Even when a match head is coated to help keep out
moisture, the chemicals that start a fire when you strike the match
will likely go bad over time.
Coat our FireSteel with
petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline) or nail polish and store your
FireSteel for decades. It'll work when you come back for it.
Give a FireSteel.com FireSteel to your
great grandchildren. 50 years from now they'll start thousands of
fires with it.
Our FireSteels Work When Wet
Drop it in water? The snow? No
problem. Wipe the FireSteel off on your coat sleeve and fire it up!
Never Run Out of Matches Again
- Use your FireSteel.com FireSteel in place of matches. Because the rod
has enough sparks within it to make
many thousands of fires: you'll NEVER inadvertently run out
- Consider this as an example: Our GobSpark Armageddon™ is probably able to make more than 15,000 Fires.
(I don't know for sure, I've never worn one out and I use it every
day!!). Try carrying that many matches!
This can be HUGE, especially in adverse
environments when you absolutely need the ability to start a fire but
the stores are too far away or perhaps its a a long term natural or
human disaster situation where supplies are unavailable.
FireSteels are Pretty Darn Tough
- FireSteel.com mailed a package of our FireSteels a US Soldier in Afghanistan. The package was accidentally run over by a 60-ton M1A1 tank! Although the FireSteels inside were broken and smashed, you could still light fires with the shards!!
You Are Cold, Hypothermic, or in Shock
Your hands can be too numb or difficult to
control enough to strike a match.
Maybe you are in an early stage of
hypothermia or shock. You fell out of a boat, or have experienced severe weather, or been exposed to severe strain.
In this condition you may not be able
to hold and strike a match! But you can more possibly hold onto and operate a FireSteel rod –
GobSpark Armageddon™ much more easily.
FireSteels Have Real Advantages over Matches
As you can imagine, there are many scenarios where a FireSteel.com FireSteel has distinct advantages over matches, not the least of which carrying one FireSteel can be equivalent to carrying many thousands of matches.
Do I carry matches too? Yes I do. But I love the assurance a FireSteel.com FireSteel gives me, knowing FOR SURE I can start as many fires as I need when I need. That's the value of our FireSteels!
You may not be falling out of boats or having your gear run over by 60-ton tanks anytime soon, but isn't it good to know your FireSteel.com FireSteels can take the same kind of abuse our Military can give them.
The long and short of it is a
FireSteel.com FireSteel could save your life – at the very least
make life a whole lot easier for you. Which is why the experts are
carrying and using our Firesteels.
Shouldn't you too?
Live Long and Prosper,
