Made from recyclable ABS plastic, the polySTRIKER™ fills the minimalist niche without sacrificing design or usability. The polySTRIKER™ line features the same innovative tungsten carbide striker design as the nanoSTRIKER™. The tungsten carbide insert is built into an easy-to-use striking tool the snaps into the handle.
The striking handle and tool are connected by a lanyard to ensure both parts are present and accounted for at all times. The striking tool securely snaps into the handle when not in use. Simply push the tool out from the cut-out in the back of the handle and you're ready to rock.
The polySTRIKER™ is available in two sizes, the standard size and the XL.
- Burns at nearly 5500 degF (3000 degC)
- Ferrocerium rod works when wet
- Durable, ultra lightweight polymer design
- Ultra-sharp tungsten carbide striking tool
- Snap-in striking tool

The strike is very compact easy to use and well bult.

I've checked out a few of these and this is by far the best. The first spark that I struck off of it fell all the way to the floor (I was standing) and burned a hole in the carpet. Good enough first test for me. I love the ability to change out the rods as well, very well engineered striker as well.

This thing works great for every fire starting application I tried it on. From lighting camp stoves, to barbeques, to lanterns, and wouldn't you guess it, plain old fires. Quick tip: don't scrape the striker down the length of the rod, pull the rod like a rip cord against the striker. The result is greater accuracy in directing the sparks and you don't accidentally disturb your tinder bundle, stove, whatever. Keep the fire burning.

I'm not very good at using flints to start fires, but the polystriker isn't exactly a "flint" as you might think of it. This thing throws off some crazy embers that will easily light about any proper bundle of flammable material. The only real con is that it can be difficult to strike properly because of its small size, fat hands, cold hands, or gloves could make it difficult to strike, but that problem can be solved by ordering the XL. Very reasonably priced, and if it provides half as many strikes as it promises it's a great value. I am pretty impresed with this little thing.
