The Architect RapidFire Fire Starter Kit is designed for outdoors-men(women) on the go. The slim design keeps it tight against your sheath and less likely to catch on something. The RapidFire Fire Starter Kit includes a Ferrocerium rod with Kydex handle and shock-cord, Kydex rod holder and attaching hardware (some installations will require the rubber spacers).

The fire starter can be pulled out easily and held securely and conveniently during use. The Architect RapidFire Fire Starter Kit is an unique innovation which you will find to be an indispensable part of your outdoor gear.
The rod is 3/8" in diameter.
The fire starter rod is durable and will last up to 12,000 strikes.
It produces a 4,000 - 5,500 degree spark and is designed to work in adverse conditions even when wet.
