Our bushcraft fire pistons are an excellent alternative to matches, lighters and firesteels. The piston creates fire from air compression; the piston is quickly pressed into the sealed cylinder which causes the air temperature to rise quickly to 260c. This rapid rise in temperature ignites the tinder which may then be transferred to a tinder bundle to create the basis of a campfire.
The Fire Piston is made to a traditional design from Hickory wood with a Walnut stain.
The Hickory Wood firepistons are chunky, handmade and in-keeping with the natural bushcraft theme, unlike those build from aluminium.
