Bears Gear: Bears Flint / Fire Steel

Throughout Man vs Wild, Bear Grylls rarely leaves without his "flint". This is actually what is also known as a "Fire Steel". The Specific model Bear prefers is the "Swedish Firesteel - Army Model" made by "Light my Fire".

Available to buy at

Info via Amazon: Originally developed for the Swedish Department of Defense, Swedish FireSteel is a flash of genius. Its 3,000°C spark makes fire building easy in any weather, at any altitude. Used by a number of armies around the world, Swedish FireSteel's dependability has already made it a favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen and campers. It has also found its way into cabins and backyards as a fool-proof way to light stoves and gas-barbecues.
