Start hundreds of fires with a flame source of 5400 degrees fahrenheit. Can be safely carried in your pocket.
This tool is safe and fire proof in solid form. Matches may become wet or broken and totally useless. With the Doan firestarter you simply place magnesium shavings which can be shaved off of block (INCLUDED) next to your tinder and scrape the sparking strip, throwing sparks into the magnesium shavings, to ignite a white hot flame. Its as simple as that.
Use with just 3 easy steps
Shave narrow side (opposite the black sparking insert) with knife. The knife blade should be held perpendicular to the tool.
Accumulate magnesium shavings about the size of a quarter into a small pile and place next to the tinder (paper, leaves,small twigs, bark, etc.)
Support edge of tool on ground within 1 inch of magnesium shavings at approximately a 45 degree angle. Scrape the entire length of the sparking insert rapidly. For maximum sparking effect, be sure to hold the knife blade perpendicular to the sparking insert. This action will generate sparks, causing the magnesium shavings to ignite, providing a white hot flame.
