This fire starter is well designed and very easy to use. It’s modular – so it collapses making it small and easy to carry. The nanoStriker consists of the handle, the ferrocerium rod and the striker. Ferrocerium is a man-made metallic material that gives off hot sparks when scraped against a rough surface such as ridged steel. In less than ideal conditions, the nanoSTRIKER also works when wet.
It’s modular design also allows a component like the ferro rod to be easily replaced if needed. The rod itself is good for about 1000 strikes. The body comes in both aluminum as well as titanium. While the aluminum version is lighter, the titanium offers the added benefit extra strength making it more durable.
If you are looking for a lightweight portable fire starter to add to your gear then the nanoSTRIKER Fire Sarter would be a great choice.
