    It's a "nude" magnesium bar, so you can use it wherever you want, not attached to anything. So it's the smallest way of this kind of item. For some people previous pro can be a con, as it's not attached to anything. For me, it's ok. It's covered with paint, may be for protection, once the paint is removed with the first scratching, it works ... Read more

    Throws lots of hot sparks and should last a very long time. I've been using daily for several months and there is a lot of life left. Price is fair. Save money by customizing your own striker. No handle or striker. You may not need a handle, but definitely will need a striker. Back of a pocket knife may work. Or make one out of piece of hacksaw blade.... Read more

    generic ferrocerium rod ideal for replacing a worn out rod, or one you've accidentally dropped... just epoxy in place and you're good to go... durable 5/16" diameter so doesn't really need a support backer to prevent splitting... decent length for stricking... there is no magnesium in this thing regardless of what it says in the title and description....

    I've used a couple of other cheap sparklers. This is the first one that throws thick hot sparks. Easily lights cotton on one or 2 strikes. Was able to light a sheet of tp with several attempts. I just bought a rubber stopper - like a cork, but rubber - drilled a 1/4" hole and then forced the striker into it. Now I've got a great handle. You need ... Read more

    Is long and thick, and it doesn´t loose much material when striked. It should last for a long time if used it frecuently, and all your life if is just for the one week in the year you go camping/hiking. To be honest, for every day use you will be better going with a lighter, but if you like survival stuff this fire rod is for you. I´ve bought ... Read more

    Great Striker with unlimited potential uses! Customizable for mounting and striker source. Great HOT sparks generated after the rod is "broken" in. Just like any other striker rod, the protective black outer coating needs to be worn down to the bare alloy to generate the best sparks. For the difference in price, I will always pick the 8 cm ...
