Multi-purpose tools with knives have always been a favorite of outdoorsmen and women who have to pack a lot of essential gear into their pockets or their backpack. And now there is a knife that combines the power of fire and steel into one convenient and rugged device. The new Swedish FireKnife™ from Light My Fire does just that.
Created through collaboration between Light My Fire and Mora of Sweden, who have made top-notch knives for 120 years, the Swedish FireKnife™ features sturdy 12C27 Sandvik stainless steel and a profile-grounded blade, a comfortable, high-friction handle, and a color-matching polypropylene sheath with a pocket clip.
But, this is more than just an extremely sharp, flexible, and sturdy knife: nestled inside the handle is a Swedish FireSteel® Scout fire starter that twist-locks into place. Capable of providing approximately 3,000 strikes to light campfires, gas stoves, and barbecues, the fire starter can be used in inclement conditions and at any elevation. In other words, you can clean and filet a fish, split kindling and light a campfire with one single handy tool.
The Swedish FireKnife™ has a 3.75-inch blade and a total length of 8.5-inches. Despite its durability and multiple components, the knife is also designed to be lightweight, tipping the scales at a mere 3.4 ounces with the sheath included.
The Swedish FireKnife™ is available in a variety of colors including: lime green, cyan blue, orange, red and black, with an MSRP of $39.99 at REI, LL Bean, Piragis Northwoods Company, and www.lightmyfireusa.com.
