U.S.-based survival and outdoor equipment manufacturer Tortoise Gear is offering an innovative new firestarting tool that is designed to be used in conjunction with the famous and ubiquitous Swiss Army knife.

Given the widespread use of the Swiss Army knife by outdoorsmen and explorers, it only makes good sense to attach a firestarting tool to this gadget, which is exactly what Tortoise Gear's Firely attachment does. This fire steel solution can be inserted into the toothpick slot of your Swiss Army knife, and doesn't just let you start fires, but also glows in the dark to help you find your way.

Despite its compact form factor, the Firefly firestarting tool is a fine example of intelligent design taking into account functionality and situational challenges faced by people who use Swiss Army knives in their outdoor adventures.
