Tip of the week – Lighting gas stoves

With many modern stoves incorporating Piezo igntion, it is easy to understand how people become reliant on these as the only means of lighting the gas.  As some ultra-lightweight stoves forego these in favour of an external system, and to ensure it remains possible to light a stove in the event of Piezo failure, I choose to carry a small firesteel within my kit.

This ensures a spark every time, and means that I can always ignite a gas stove, and if necessary can start a fire using natural materials.
For the sake of a few grams, an item like this one could be a lifesaver.
