Welcome to Wilderness Solutions, the world's leading manufacturer of the incredible FIRE PISTON....the most amazing survival fire starting device ever conceived!
With a single push, tinder placed in the end of the piston is spontaneously ignited by the heat of compression, instantly becoming a glowing ember with no more effort than lighting a match. Literally, fire with air...
2nd Generation fire pistons are absolutely the hottest firing and latest state of development in compression fire starting. The Patented 2nd Generation pressure relief mechanism is available on traditional designs such as exotic Coco Bolo Wood, Asian Water Buffalo Horn or modern designs such as the Firelights, Survival FirePen, Aluminum FireStar and the new polymer Scout II. All are covered by a lifetime repair warranty.
Wilderness Solutions is a global supplier. Advancements in CNC manufacturing have resulted in the highest quality products and fastest shipping time. Orders on standard products, received before noon, usually ship same day.
As a survival device, one of the most compelling aspects of Wilderness Solutions fire pistons is their ability to ignite a variety of natural tinders that can be collected in the woods and fields using only the air we breathe.
Some of these tinders having practical value for fire making include true tinder fungus (Inonotus obliquus ) , mullein pith, milkweed pod ovum, milkweed down, cattail fluff, poplar cotton, and wood punk. In addition, cotton charcloth, familiar to flint and steel firemakers works very well in the fire piston and can be made at home.
