Designed for all-weather use, this revolutionary flint based fire starting system performs superbly in the most extreme marine, arctic, desert, and jungle environments. The Ultimate Survival Technologies' BlastMatch never fails to light in the wind, rain, or snow. BlastMatch generates a stream of super heated sparks literally three times the heat of a standard match. You can easily light any material (wood, paper, bark, cloth, or man-made fire starting tinder) that a match will ignite. Best of all, you can accurately aim the sparks to ignite a roaring fire in all weather conditions, and the BlastMatch will last a thousand strikes.

The world's finest one-handed fire starter is compact, lightweight, and operates in all conditions. BlastMatch™ was designed for Air Force fighter pilots and is compact enough for anyone to carry in their kit. A spring loaded flint bar and a tungsten carbide striker generate sparks three times as hot as a standard match and will light virtually any material including wood, paper, bark, cloth, or man-made fire starting tinders (CAMP-221 WetFire Tinder). BlastMatch never fails to spark in any environment or weather condition, even pouring rain.

5.0 Rating Simply the Best - 3/14/2008
Reviewer: Kernmantle
This sucker throws a blinding stream of sparks at any altitude, even when it's wet. This shower of sparks is powerful enough to ignite a cigarette without having to take a drag. The blast match is more effective at burning things than any disposable or 'high performance' lighter- it's more like a MAP gas torch! Yet this fits in your pocket, is unaffected by environmental extremes, and it seems like it would take a lifetime to wear out. It does take a little more dexterity to operate than I had thought. The operator has to apply pressure to a plastic button which holds the steel when operating the spring-loaded plunger. I highly recommend it. I remember a 4x4 camping trip in the rockies when it hit 40 below. Our zippos, BICS, camp stoves, and trucks were all rendered useless. Only by using the blast match to light some stoves, and start a few fires were we able to warm up, make breakfast, and get the trucks to turn over. It's pricey but it is the best fire starting tool this pyro has ever seen!!!!

5.0 Rating awesome - 3/22/2008
Reviewer: jh4
Emits many high temperature sparks; small, compact size; works in all conditions(wet or dry); large flint bar. Camping and surviving are just a few things you can do with this work of engineering.

5.0 Rating This one works!!! - 9/16/2008
Reviewer: Papa
The kids and I have been trying to learn some survival skills in the backyard. We've tried all kinds of firestarting methods. Suffice it to say, we aren't too good at most of them. But this thing works! Really! One swipe, and the tinder was in flames. I tried it again, and it worked again! We started several fires with it. I came back to order another one so we can play with one, and still have a good one in the survival pack that we're putting together. This is MUCH better than any other firesteel we've tried.

5.0 Rating Can save your life - 12/9/2008
Reviewer: Bark'n
Look, if you're cold and hypothermic, shivering, maybe you have an injured arm or hand... This is a fire starter you can use with only one hand! It can literally save your life! No need to hold the fire steel in one hand and strike the rod with steel using the other hand. Just plunge the spring loaded fire steel against a firm surface and you're in business. If you're fighting hypothermia, you must get a fire going before confusion or loss of motor function strikes or you're done for. The Blastmatch Fire Starter is that tool! I carry at least three totally different methods of starting a fire, and the Blastmatch is always one of those methods. It's always with me.
