Colter Fire Piston

28.00

Do you love fire? Do you love science? Then the fire piston is for you. It works based on the same physics that inspired the diesel engine. Air compression creates heat. A small piece of tinder placed in the tip of the rod ignites when the rod is quickly compressed into the tube. You can then pick out the tinder (or transfer it with a different piece of char cloth) and put it in a tinder bundle to make fire. 

This kit includes:

- 1 Colter Fire Piston (aluminum rod and tube set in a hickory handle)

- 4 "o" ring gaskets

- 1 bundle of pre-charred char cloth

- 1 char cloth kit with 14 pieces of uncharred 100% cotton flannel.

 

This kit will give you countless embers, and the means to make more char cloth with you run low. A true staple for any primitive skills enthusiast. Or science teacher.
