Fire Piston

A fire piston, sometimes called a fire syringe or a slam rod fire starter, is a device of ancient origin which has been “reinvented” many times during different eras and is used to kindle fire. It uses the principle of the heating of a gas (in this case air) by its rapid (adiabatic) compression to ignite a piece of tinder, which is then used to set light to kindling.
