The Holland Lightning
Strike Mini Fire Starter
is the perfect gift for the Outdoors person
you are a hiker, camper, hunter or scout, Darrell Holland's Mini
Lightning Strike Fire Starter should be one of the first items of
survival gear in your backpack. When Mother Nature suddenly turns
ugly the need for fire in a survival situation becomes critical. Not
everyone is an outdoor expert who can build a fire under extreme
conditions. This fire starter has everything you need to start a fire
in virtually any outdoor environment.
The Mini Lighting Strike is a
smaller, lighter version of our standard Lightning Strike. It is
available in Fiery Red, Dark Blue, Forrest Green, or Black Ops
anodizing. This is the ideal tool where size and weight are a major
consideration. Made in the USA, the anodized machined aluminum
housing is only 5.5" long by 1” in diameter and weighs in at
3.25 oz. including tinder. It has a waterproof storage handle that
comes pre-loaded with a fire starting tinder kit good for at least a
dozen fires. Refill tinder kits are available.
The ferrocerium rod generates a
large quantity of sparks. It is locked in the barrel of the
Lightening Strike using a setscrew so it can be replaced or rotated
when one side becomes worn. The barrel design directs and focuses the
sparks so they are all concentrated on your tinder. A slot in the
barrel guides your striker along the Ferro rod, and it also provides
a stop so your striker does not disrupt the tinder pile.
The striker, when not in use,
inserts into the end of the barrel for storage, and is held in place
with a shock cord attached to the cap. No chance of dropping the
striker in the snow or loosing it on the ground when its getting
dark. It's always attached to the shock cord. The Mini Lightning
Strike can also be used even if one hand is injured. Place it on the
ground, hold it down with one foot, place the tinder at the end of
the barrel and strike. You will have a fire.

time, but is that good enough? The features designed into the
Lightening Strike work all the time, every time. Is it expensive?
Many will say yes, but in a real survival situation cost becomes
pretty much irrelevant. Watch this amazing real life U Tube
