Striker rod and bellows for igniting even stubborn fuel

The Vargo Ultimate Fire Starter provides everything you need to start a roaring fire except the fuel. Simply unscrew the ferrocerium rod from the bellows and use the integrated scraper to ignite any tinder. Then, extend the bellows and gently blow to nurture that spark into a flame. Or use it any time to help increase the heat of your fire. Great for getting stubborn or wet fuel to burn, too!
