I almost always just use the fire steel with some cotton balls and petroleum, but its nice to know I have the magnesium for rainy conditions. This fire steel is way bigger than most! None. Larger size allows you to really send in the sparks. I was throwing sparks 18 inches! Good addition to the pack.... Read more
Easy of the use...The price is excellent, and the material is of good quality, sturdy and durable. I have several, but this is the best of all, I'm very pleased.I will purchase other models for testing. Has no cons, great product! Only should have more magnesium to shave it ends too fast. The best product!... Read more

- It's relatively cheap, compared to what you pay over here (Europe). - This model is one of the larger models on DX, which makes it more easy to hold, and it lasts longer (because firestarters use to wear/"run out", because each time it loses some material). - It produces a nice volume of sparks almost ...

- A firestarter is a must-have, or at least a very useful tool, in survival/outdoor situations.
- It's quite big, when compared to some other thinner firestarters on DX. This means you've got extra material to work with (because in the end, firestarters aren't everlasting, they will wear and "run ... Read more
