Product Description

Don't Settle for Cheap Imitations!
The Doan Magnesium Fire Starter is the genuine article and not a cheap knock-off like those found at a big box store. We are offering the very same patented, premium quality magnesium fire starter that is used by military personnel. The packaging sometimes varies from that which is required by the U.S. government, but the fire starter is exactly the same.

There are two sides to be used on the magnesium fire starter. One side is used for shaving off magnesium dust while the opposite side contains a firmly attached flint for igniting the magnesium dust. It is essentially tinder and igniter in one!

It is important to understand that the attachment of the flint and size of the magnesium block are where this product distinguishes itself from any imitator. In our magnesium fire starter, the flint is firmly attached in a patented process that competitor's cannot match. Their flint can easily separate from the magnesium block and what's more, the magnesium block and flint they provide are often smaller.

Tip: Large magnesium chunks will not ignite properly, if at all! Shave the magnesium off in a manner that creates fine particles and you will have great success.

Rather than dulling a knife to shave the magnesium, you may try a file on a multi-tool or a fine-toothed reciprocating saw blade. When you can't plan that far ahead, find a sharp-edged rock to use and when none can be found, use flint knapping techniques to create a sharp edge.
