The Ultimate Survival SPARKIE™ Fire Starter
Sparkie™, the new emergency fire starter from Ultimate Survival Technologies, features one-handed operation in a lightweight, compact design.
A squeeze on the rubberized sides of the Sparkie ejects its spring-loaded flint. To create fire, you just push the end of the flint against a solid object (the ground, a log, etc.) near your tinder, all the while squeezing the side to engage the striker bar. The result: a shower of sparks three times hotter than the average match.
Built on the premise of the original BlastMatch™, Sparkie™ can be operated with one hand and start your fire even in the most adverse weather conditions.
Weighing less than one ounce, Sparkie™ is approximately one-third the weight and less than half the volume of its big brother the BlastMatch™. It features a re configured striker tab enclosure and spark bar. The compact body has a rubberized grip wrap giving you maximum control and comfort during use.
The patent-pending Sparkie is easily operated by pressing down on the thumb tab, which houses the striker, and plunging the striker down the metal spark bar. The striker is set at the perfect angle to achieve maximum sparks and requires less force than traditional flint and steel two-handed fire starters. While its one-handed operation is simple, it can be a critical lifesaving aspect in case of injury to a hand or arm.
As an ultra light, ultra reliable, one-handed, all-weather fire starter, the Sparkie is the perfect solution to make sure that you always have the ability to build a fire.

DIRECTIONS:
1. Place thumb on word “Push” and press down, releasing the spring-loaded spark bar.
2. Place flat end of Sparkie spark bar holder on a hard surface in cleared area at an 75 – 90 degree angle. (Force applied at the improper angle may damage or break the bar holder.) Push down on thumb tab with constant medium pressure and plunge the body of Sparkie down the spring loaded spark bar. Initiate a few strikes to remove black oxide coating, exposing bare flint.
3. Place prepared tinder in cleared fire area. Use Sparkie to shower tinder with sparks to ignite fire. (We recommend WetFire all-weather tinder cubes.)
4. If you do not have a hard surface, you can light Sparkie by holding it in your hand and using your index finger to plunge the spark bar back towards the Sparkie body while maintaining pressure on the thumb tab.

CAUTION! Sparkie generates intensely hot sparks. Keep away from anything you do not want to burn. Do not spark more than three consecutive times as hot sparks can gather and damage the bar holder. USE ONLY AS DIRECTED.
