In 1995 our founder, Michael Odqvist, came across an age-old secret - MayaSticks. He was fascinated by the sheer brilliance of this resinous kindling. Not only was it a quick, easy and reliable way to get a fire going, the sticks were also completely natural, produced from waste - the stumps left from felled pine trees - by locals in Guatemala. By starting fair trade production on a larger scale, Michael helped 400 of these descendents of Maya Indians make more money so that they were able to start sending their children to school. A year later the fire-starters were launched in Sweden. Based in Sweden, Light My Fire specializes in outdoor accessories that are as practical in the city as they are in the wild. From making fires to eating meals - our products have been taken to heart all over the world by both the backyard and the backwoods survivalist
Light My Fire Army versionBy: Gerry O'Brien on 17 March 2019Very useful tool for starting fires. Works when wet and in cold weather. More reliable than matches or lighter. No hiker should leave home without one. Make sure you pack it inside your pack or in your pocket as the finger grip has a habit of coming loose. Otherwise a very good unit.
