Created and manufactured by Solo Scientific Inc. in the USA to be used to start your campfires (to watch video click at left, click on images to enlarge - back arrow to return to this web site). Our goal was to design and manufacture the best all-around survival fire starter in the world and we have absolutely done it! AEROSPACE QUALITY, our Aurora Fire Starter™ (US Patent Numbers. 8202085, 8186995) is a true survival tool and will work in any environment that will support life!
Lightweight and designed for outdoor adventurers and pilots who like to be prepared, our Aurora Fire Starter has even climbed Mount Everest (2SA Model). Our Aurora Fire Starter™ will start a lifetime of campfires for most users. Two models are now available both equipped with a built-in guided striking blade and ferrocerium flint steel rod with magnesium within its composition - yielding sparks as hot as 5000 degrees F. Your color choice of either silver, black, or rescue red anodized for both models. This standard 440C model comes with our great 440C Fully Hardened Stainless Steel Striking Blade installed that can be flipped over or sharpened if dulled (standard on units shipped on or after 07/31/09)
To start a fire using our Aurora Fire Starter™: 1.Place your fire starting material on the ground (plain cotton balls, dryer lint, toilet paper, char cloth, birch bark, milk weed fluff, cotton wood fluff, burdock, or fine dry grass work great but any fine dry tinder usually found in the wild can be used). 2. Open your Aurora Fire Starter™. 3. Scrape the composite flint steel rod(ferrocerium w/magnesium within its composition)with the built-in guided 440C Striking Blade (note: for first use it may be necessary to scrape off protective coating on rod first with striking blade) while aiming the hot burning sparks at your tinder and you have FIRE!

Our Aurora Fire Starter™ is rugged, and is designed for survival. Our Aurora Fire Starter™ uses a large 1/4" diameter (.635cm) composite flint steel rod that has magnesium built into it. The built-in Striking Blade could be a lifesaver! You can wear our 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 Striking Blade takes off enough material to start a fire but will not cause excessive wear, can be flipped over to reveal a fresh striking surface (Note: our NEW 440C striking blades will yield thousands of strikes before needing to be flipped), or be sharpened if dulled. Also see our optional Super Alloy Blade below. Our built-in Striking Blade is part of the unit and will not get caught on equipment, break off, or rattle while in combat, or hunting - like other fire starters that have a blade hanging from a string. Our Aurora Fire Starter™ is designed to function wet or dry, is machined from solid light- weight aircraft aluminum (NO PLASTIC!), is knurled for grip, and will not break when you need it most. Our Aurora Fire Starter has an overall length of 3.6" (9.14cm) a diameter of .625" (1.59cm), weighs 1/10lb.(1.6 oz or 45g), has an o-ring seal to prevent the housing from unscrewing and provide protection from corrosion in salt water environments. Our Aurora Fire Starter is designed to last a life time and provide you with fire when the emergency situation occurs. Our Aurora Fire Starter™ comes complete with detailed instructions and several pieces of fire starting material. Order yours today! Must be 18 years old or older to order. Made in USA!
