US based Ultimate Survival Technologies (UST) produce a diverse line of personal safety and survival tools, including patented all-weather fire-starting systems, tinder and lighters, unbreakable signal mirrors, premium compact saws, knives and many other innovative and useful products.
One such item, the Parahatchet FS (Fire Starter) measures 9.7 x 3.4 x 0.75-inches and has a thick stainless-steel blade with black-oxide finish; a flint fire starter is included, and multi-sized hex wrenches are integrated into its build seen along the top side of the head. The sheath for this model has been thoughtfully designed, so that they can be safely accessed with the sheath in place covering the forward cutting edge. The hex-wrench sizes are 3/8, 9/16, and 11/16-inches and when the hatchet plus fire starter are in the heavyduty black nylon sheath, the package still only measures 10 x 4 x 1.25-inches and weighs 11.4oz. The blaze orange paracord handle unwraps to give approximately 8ft of very strong cordage. The hatchet’s thick stainless-steel blade easily chops firewood and branches, plus it has a ‘quick-action’ rope cutter on the opposite side to the blade. The magnesium fire starter that comes included with it has its own protective sheath; use the FS with the blade and you’ve got the capability of creating sparks in all weather conditions.
