  1. Beauty + Function 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

    Beneath the natural beauty of the coco bolo wood of this 2nd generation fire piston is a fiercely functional tool in that original technological revolution: fire. The fit of the plunger is perfect, and the brass pressure-relief valve is neither overly tight nor unnecessarily loose. This convertible kit comes with 3 different valve cover and carry options: A thumbscrew, a split ring threaded on a long leather neck thong, and a split ring threaded on a short thing attached to a soft leather pouch. The pouch is how I currently prefer mine, as I can carry charcloth, jute fiber kindling, and flint and steel together with the piston and have everything needed to start a fire with more than one method in a small bundle perfect for bringing out to the fire pit. As with any technology, practice makes it easier to consistently ignite embers; I find it easiest to lay the fire, prepare the nest, and use a small piece of char cloth in the piston with a slightly larger piece waiting in the nest. After igniting an ember in the piston, I can simply use the tip of the plunger to transfer the ember to the charcloth in the nest. The size and shape of this 2nd gen piston makes it easy to ignite.
