DESIGN: Kupilka/Karu Survival
MOTIVATION FROM THE JURY
There are other firesteels on the market, but none comes close to the performance of the Firesteel 8 from the finish manufacturer Kupilka. Its ergonomic handle made out of a natural fiber composite gives a very secure grip no matter which side you hold on to – even while wearing winter gloves. The very strong sparks make it easy to light a fire. The jury also liked that it is produced in Finland with high attention to sustainable aspects like the use of eco energy or metal waste for the striker.
