The Wilderness Solutions Fire Piston is the most amazing survival fire starting device ever conceived! With a single push, tender in the end of the piston is spontaneously ignited by the heat of compression, instantly becoming a glowing ember with no more effort than lighting a match. Literally, fire with air...
As a survival device, one of the most compelling aspects of the Fire Piston is the ability to ignite a variety of natural tinders that can be collected in the woods and field using only the air we breath.
Some of these tinders having practical value for fire making include true tinder fungus (Inontus obliquus), mullein pith, milkweed pod ovum, milkweed down, cattail fluff, poplar cotton and wood punk. In addition, cotton charcloth, familiar to flint and steel firemakers works very well in the fire piston and can be made at home.
