Our Ferrocerium Fire Button is a last-resort fire starting device. Because it replaces an existing button on your clothing, it is always with you and takes up no additional space or weight. This is a great device for an escape and evasion situation. If it doesn’t fit your clothing, keep it with a few other buttons in a sewing or repair kit. Only you will know it’s there. The Ferrocerium is a synthetic pyrophoric alloy which produces hot sparks that can reach temperatures of 5400 degrees when struck with a hard object. Size: a standard button size – ¾” diameter (which is great for a coat) and 5/32” thick. Weight: 0.2 oz. Color: Dark gray. Made in the USA.
Note: you should also check out our Magnesium Fire Button which is also available.
