New Pine Mountain® ExtremeStart™ Firestarter Makes Fire Building Quick, Easy & Mess-Free

If you’re not a survivalist, you’re not alone—starting fires, whether you’re camping, grilling, or backyard entertaining, can be rife with challenges. Charcoal chimneys can create an unspeakable mess, damp kindling or wet wood leads to billowing smoke, and for the more adventurous, blisters may ensue when rubbing wood together to get a spark.

The new Pine Mountain® ExtremeStart™ Firestarter is the ultimate fire building solution. Whether using charcoal or wood, simply place the Swiss Army Knife sized ExtremeStart™ Firestarter underneath, light the wrapper and you can be confident that your fire will be ablaze in minutes, without blowing, stoking or poking.

For indoor and outdoor use, the Pine Mountain® ExtremeStart™ Firestarter is compact and easily transported to your next tailgate or fire-side social event. There’s no need to hunt for newspaper, dried grass, or other kindling to light a wood fire, or use accelerants, gels, and lighter fluids to ignite a charcoal fire.


Enjoy a fire tonight. No special occasion required.
