Light My Fire

Light-my-Fire’s journey began in 1995 when founder Michael Odqvist discovered MayaSticks, a natural fire-starting method made from waste pine tree stumps in Guatemala. By introducing fair trade production, Michael empowered 400 Mayan descendants to earn more income for their families and education. In 1996, Light-my-Fire combined MayaSticks with a Swedish military magnesium igniter called the Swedish FireSteel, establishing a factory in Sweden.

The company’s first product, the MealKit, designed by Joachim Nordwall, debuted in 2005 and featured innovative dining accessories, notably the Spork. The Spork family has since expanded, with over 50 million sold worldwide, helping Light-my-Fire distribute its colorful and functional outdoor products in 50 countries. Today, the company continues to thrive by embracing quality, design, functionality, and outdoor enthusiasm, reflected in its vibrant product range.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Swedish FireSteel Scout work?

The Swedish FireSteel Scout 2in1 works by scraping the striker down the length of the magnesium alloy rod. This creates sparks that reach 3,000 degrees Celsius, capable of igniting a wide range of tinder, stoves, or grills. The magnesium rod is designed to work even in wet and windy conditions, making it reliable in all weather.

How to Ignite a Fire with my Light My Fire Tools?

  1. Gather small sticks, bark, and other kindling materials. The tinier, the better for easy ignition.
  2. Organize these materials into a small heap.
  3. Retrieve your Swedish FireSteel or Swedish FireKnife, which is equipped with a built-in FireSteel.
  4. Make use of paper, birch-bark, or ideally, your TinderSticks or Tinder-on-a-rope, manufactured from farmed Honduran pine. Scrape off some shavings and scatter them within the kindling. With a high resin content of 80%, this optimal ignition fuel burns extremely hot and slow, and can also resist moisture and water.
  5. Gradually build up the fire. Start with small sticks and progressively increase the size. Make sure the fire has ample oxygen and be patient while it grows.

Benefits and Uses

The main advantage of a Swedish FireSteel fire starter over other fire-starting tools is its dependable performance in any circumstances. The Swedish FireSteel fire starter is durable and doesn't require flints, lighter fluid, batteries, or replacement components.

A Swedish FireSteel fire starter functions efficiently even in severe conditions, such as extreme cold, where gas may struggle to vaporize and ignite. It also provides consistent performance at any altitude, unlike a butane lighter, which can be affected by dampness and reduced oxygen levels at higher elevations. The spark generated by the Swedish FireSteel fire starter is bright enough to serve as an emergency signal. The striker and rod are connected by a lanyard to prevent accidental separation and compact enough to fit into a pocket.

What is the built-in emergency whistle for?

The built-in emergency whistle is an added safety feature of the FireSteel Scout. In case of an emergency or when you need to signal for help, this whistle can be used to attract attention due to its high-pitched sound that carries over long distances.

Can the FireSteel Scout be used with any type of stove?

Yes, the FireSteel Scout is versatile and can be used to ignite both traditional alcohol and modern gas stoves. Its ability to ignite flammable gas or liquid directly makes it a great tool for various cooking needs during outdoor adventures.

Is the Swedish FireSteel Scout safe to travel with?
