To Ignite Fine Dry Tinder – Set tip of flint directly into tinder. Scrape firmly all the way to the end of the flint rod. If tinder does not ignite right away, scrape the flint consecutively 2 or 3 more times.
To Ignite Gas – Turn on the gas, shower sparks into the ignition area.
Tips on Using the Strike Master Survival Tool
- Place the tip of the fire starter firmly on the ground
- Hold scraper at an angle to rest of fire starter
- For best results, the flint bar should be nearly touching the tinder
- If the scraper is lost, a knife, broken piece of glass, chipped rock, or any hard sharp edge will work in it’s place

- With some models shavings from the wooden handle make excellent tinder
