Lightweight and designed for outdoor adventurers and pilots who like to be prepared, the Aurora Fire Starter has even climbed Mount Everest!

Created and manufactured by Solo Scientific in the USA this 2SA model Aurora Fire Starter (US Patent Numbers. 8202085, 8186995) is equipped with unbeatable life-time tungsten, carbide, cobalt built-in guided Super Alloy Striking Blade that will never dull! The Super Alloy Blade is so hard that it can be used to sharpen your knives when your not starting fires! Simply use the back side of the blade to sharpen your knives in the field!

The goal was to design and manufacture the best all-around survival fire starter in the world AEROSPACE QUALITY! Two models are now available both equipped with a ferrocerium flint steel rod with magnesium within its composition - yielding sparks as hot as 5000 degrees F.

You can wear the lightweight Aurora Fire Starter on your key ring or around your neck on a lanyard and if you are ever separated from your pack or knife you will still have everything you need to start a fire. The built-in Super Alloy Striking Blade is made from a tungsten, carbide, cobalt alloy that takes off enough material to start a fire but will not cause excessive wear. This new Super Alloy Striking Blade will not dull and is harder than any knife blade you will find.

The Striking Blade is part of the unit and will not get caught on equipment, break off, or rattle - like other fire starters that have a blade hanging from a string.
It is designed to function wet or dry, is machined from solid light-weight aircraft aluminum, is knurled for grip, and will not break when you need it most.
It has an o-ring seal to prevent the housing from unscrewing and provide protection from corrosion in salt and fresh water environments.

    Works well but may not last long

    Posted by jimbo on 7th Dec 2016

    Perfect next day delivery and customer service from Heinnie Haynes as always. Received this morning the unit is well made and easy to use and the sparks are easy to direct on to tinder. My main concern is how soft the rod is, have only had a few practice tries and already there is a lot ware on the rod.

    Very good but....

    This firestarter could be possibly one of the best rod and blade based firestarters ever. Yet the inside of the host tube has room for 2.5mm more of rod thickness and 1cm more rod length and this WOULD DEFINITELY make a difference in efficiency and lasting. Furthermore I contacted the maker five days ago, asking whether the rod was replaceable or not, with no answer inso far. This is quite bad.

    I had some more time to put it to the pace in the wild. I had my lent Exotac Nanostriker XL back just to make a comparison. The latter requires far less pressure to generate sparks, and the stream of these sparks is far more predictable. Also, the handle it is quite longer, which adds to control and support. Last, but not least: Aurora Fire Starter rod has EXACTLY the same diameter of Exotac Nanostriker XL, albeit with roughly 1cm more length. This more length is vanified by the position/angle required by the striking blade.... 2 stars less for a 2 stars total.
