Additional Information

Fire piston information and videos.

To create a fire, the piston must be rammed quickly into the sealed cylinder with a single stroke. The compression of the air causes the temperature to rise rapidly to 260 degrees Celsius, or 500 degrees Fahrenheit. This causes the tinder on the piston face to ignite, which is then withdrawn and transferred to a larger pile of kindling to create a fire.

This kit consists of:

  • 1 x Fire Piston aluminium plunger (green)
  • 1 x Fire Piston aluminium body (green)
  • 1 x 64mm Firesteel
  • Charcloth & lubricant filled caps
  • Bag of spare seals
  • Easy to follow instructions
