Numyth Vulcan Fire Piston V2

The Vulcan is precision CNC machined from an aluminum alloy and has an ultra tough hard anodized type III coating to protect it from scratches and general wear. The body has generous amounts of knurling to ensure that the fire piston stays in your hand securely, even when using gloves. The top of the fire piston features a removable cap that allows access to a watertight storage capsule, perfect for keeping your tinder or other small items safe and dry. Similar to a diesel engine, a fire piston works by rapidly compressing air and igniting a small piece of tinder held in place in the tinder notch. An ember is created instead of a flame, so relatively advanced fire starting skills are needed to take advantage of the ember once created.

I had never seen this before, but after a friend mentioned it and i watched a couple you-tube videos i made the purchase. A hint about charcloth, find some 100% cotton fabric, something heavy like denium to make the char-cloth. I just put it in a tin and put it on the barbecue while I made dinner. The cloth works great. it is very fragile and messy, but it lights like a champ. This is going into my survival pack.
