Zünden Fire Starter

Regular price $16.00

Our favorite fire starter, the Zünden by Überleben, strikes the perfect balance between function and form. The Sånft-korr™ ferrocerium consistently outperforms other fire starters, and nothing looks or feels better than natural wood. 
The lightweight Zunden slips easily into a pocket or backpack. It's built to last. And best of all, like all well-made tools, the Zunden instantly comes to feel like and old friend.

Available in 3 Different Sizes: 

Trad -  5/16" (12,000 strikes)
Pro - 3/8" (15,000 strikes)
Fatty - 1/2" (20,000 strikes)
