If you’ve ever tried to light a fire in damp or windy conditions, or you spent time in the Boy Scouts, you probably know how to start a fire with a gum wrapper and a battery. Spiffy Lab’s new fire starter works on the same principle, but it’s enclosed in a much more durable, safer to operate package. Inside the negatively charged body of the device that looks like a high-end EDC pen (complete with knurled cap, clip and aluminum / copper material options) you’ll find two AAA batteries (need to add those yourself, obviously) and a positively charged copper tip hiding under the cap. Unscrew Sparky’s cap, touch both the positive and negative “terminals” to steel (steel wool is included, but a gum wrapper will work) and bam! Fire. You don’t need to worry about the windproof rating of your lighter when you’re making fire with science.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
