Created and manufactured by Solo Scientific in the USA to be used to start your campfires. Our goal was to design and manufacture the best all-around survival fire starter in the world and we have absolutely done it! These New Models are AEROSPACE QUALITY! Two models are now available both equipped with a built-in guided striking blade and ferrocerium flint steel rod with magnesium within its composition - yielding sparks as hot as 5000 degrees F. Your color choice of either silver or black anodized for both models. The standard 440C model comes with our great 440C Fully Hardened Stainless Steel Striking Blade installed that can be flipped over or sharpened if dulled
To start a fire using our Aurora Fire Starter™:
- Place your fire starting material on the ground (plain cotton balls, dryer lint, toilet paper, birch bark, milk weed fluff, cotton wood fluff, burdock, or fine dry grass work great but any fine dry tinder usually found in the wild can be used).
- Open your Aurora Fire Starter™.
- Scrape the composite flint steel rod(ferrocerium w/magnesium within its composition)with the built-in guided 440C Striking Blade (note: for first use it may be necessary to scrape off protective coating on rod first with striking blade) while aiming the hot burning sparks at your tinder and you have FIRE!
