We are currently out of stock on the Vulcan Fire Piston.Â A new version with some aesthetic (no functional) changes will be coming early 2013.
The Vulcan Fire Piston is the first production CNC fire piston in the world and is also the first product from our new brand, Numyth. Numyth is dedicated to bringing you the most innovative and highest quality outdoor and survival products on the market.
The Vulcan is precision CNC machined from an aerospace grade aluminum alloy and has an ultra tough hard anodized type III coating to protect it from scratches and general wear. The body has generous amounts of knurling to ensure that the fire piston stays in your hand securely, even when using gloves. The top of the fire piston features a removable cap that allows access to a watertight storage capsule, perfect for keeping your tinder or other small items safe and dry. The bottom cap of the tube is also removable, which allows you to be able to clean the tube when tinder and lubrication builds up as well as keeping the piston securely in place when not in use.
How it works
Similar to a diesel engine, a fire piston works by rapidly compressing air and igniting a small piece of tinder held in place in the tinder notch. An ember is created instead of a flame, so relatively advanced fire starting skills are needed to take advantage of the ember once created. In order to properly use the fire piston, easily ignitable tinder such as char cloth or true tinder fungus is required.
