Product Description

Large firestarter with handle and High Quality compass.

This is our “Cadillac” model. It has all the bells and whistles which is why it’s our most popular All-Weather Firestarter (AWF). This Firestarter comes with a beautiful hand crafted wooden handle (Hickory, Sassafras, Dogwood or Hawthorn) and our largest size of military grade magnesium.

It also comes with the AWF’s lifetime guarantee on the magnesium. To complement it even more, we added a few items that will help you navigate home.

The liquid filled operational compass is a critical tool that can be used to get you to your destination, and back home safely. Navigating the great outdoors just got a little easier! To finish it off, we’ve attached one of our specifically designed steel blades and a military 550 para cord.

    This is the best FIRE STARTER. I have used a variety of fire starter( light my fire, survivor firestarter, aurora firestarter) , but it was easy to use most.

    This product works great! It works in all conditions and is heavy duty to last a long time! Finally a product that has been accurately represented by the maker! Thanks for doing what you do, so I can keep enjoying what I do!!!

    Probably the best firesteel on the market.
    Excelent flint. Excelent striker. Excelent magnesium block. Excelent shape and size. Handle as a tinder also works incredibly well.
    The compas on the bottom is not perfect, but it’s primarily a firestarter and it excells as that.

    Right, the handles comfy and is good grip wise. The cord is a good length. the flint is great and produces lots of sparks. The magnesium is not as easily shaved off as is demonstrated in the advert but is pretty easy and its not difficult to have a big pile of shavings in less that a minute. The compass points roughly in the right direction but i wouldn’t trust it completely-plus it moves really slowly.Also the temperature gauge is in Fahrenheit not Celsius so might be a bit confusing if you’re like me and aren’t familiar with Fahrenheit. Hope this helps.

    The product is great! My only issue is the striker! It’s a little small for my hands. I’m a big fella!

    Pros :
    -good, big handle, easy to hold in gloves
    -magnesium is very ok
    -scraper is good, much better than in any other firesteels but i would like to see it much bigger. normally i use knife to throw the sparks. when i tired or wearing gloves in winter i want to grab it in palm, not just gently hold it in 2-3 fingers

    -soft flint doesn’t last for long
    -compass is really poor and gets stucked
    -thermometer seems to live its own life regardless themperature.

    i can recommend these firestarters, i like it much more than any other but get one without compass and thermometer. both are poor and i would not trust to them at all

    What a absolute fire starter. My wife and I have been sampling through some fire starters and found that they are a pain in the butt. I am very experienced with them and sometimes I find it a bit difficult with store brands. I just received this as a gift for Christmas and I have been lighting stuff on fire all day. I do agree that the compass and thermometer are a little cheesy but the products intended use is by far the best I’ve used. I will be picking up some of the smaller ones for every day carry

    I bought one of your fire starters several years ago and was very impressed with the quality of your product.
    I have a good friend and neighbor who was born in Guyana, South America and was going there to his family and home to establish a new farmland area up-river from Georgetown, where his family lives. Anyone knowing anything about the area knows that this is one of the most undeveloped areas on earth. It is virtually virgin jungle with a very wet and tropical terrain. I gave him my fire starter that I had bought from you and he was very grateful. Upon his return, he thanked me for the gift and said that it was most certainly a fitting gift. He used it at his camp and was impressed with how easy it was to use it and how reliable it was in the adverse conditions.
    As the years passed, I found myself remorseful of having given it to him as I enjoy primitive camping and I wanted to have one for myself. I knew when I got the starter that I probably would want another and I had retained the info sheet you sent with the first purchase. I was delighted when you answered the phone and assured me that you were still selling the starters and had made improvements. Of course I ordered one right away. The newer product is even better than the first one with the larger handle and better flint. There is certainly enough magnesium on the starter to last years, maybe even decades if someone does not go camping a lot.
    I have now developed a friendship with someone who often strikes out and away from the maddening crowd to find solace. He is leaving town to go to Colorado and begin a new leg of his life’s adventure. I just purchased my third starter from your site as the one I have now is going with him.
    Thank you for such a great product that a gift of it seems like passing a personal treasure to my friends.

    Thank you so much for this product I picked up at a Boy Scout conclave after seeing a demonstration. I am in the military and my whole family is in scouting. We are from a Military Boy Scout troop 776 on Ft Bragg. We are so satisfied with your product that my wife purchased one for each of the family. It is great with thermometer and compass for our venturing scouts. It is great that it can get wet and still be functional unlike others. We are taking it on a Survivor Man competition this weekend at Camp Reeves, In Carthage, NC. Some of our boys, including my 10 ½ yr old son will be using this product. It will assist them in there survival skills badges and fire building challenge. Yours in scouting..Joe.

    Dear Edmund,

    Received the ‘All-Weather FireStarter (Navigator-1)’ today. Used it a little and am very impressed with the performance so far. I’m glad that I ordered such a lovely product.

    Also appreciate the minute details that have gone in towards the making of this product.
    1. Paracord neatly trimmed towards each end.
    2. Provision of a spare striker.
    3. Alignment of the thermometer.
    4. Completely un-used piece being delivered, with no scratch on magnesium bar, Flint or wooden handle.
    5. Dual layer of packing.
    6. Radium based navigation compass.
    7. Softness of the magnesium for easy scraping.

    Please continue to manufacture these lovely FireStarters..!!

    Thank you once again.

    Good Evening Edmund,

    I saw your product on Youtube a few months back and being up in Canada I finally got around and ordered one…and it arrived today.

    Wow…what a fabulous product. I know you make each of these by hand and I just wanted to say thank you for your efforts. Not only is it well worth the money but it looks fantastic. I almost don’t want to use it!

    Thanks again for your efforts. It is appreciated. Just wanted to let you know.
