  • Ferrocerium rod plus a bit magnesium

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    - This unit contains a magnesium bar.

    - The ratio of magnesium to ferrocerium is about right.

    - The glue used in the construction seems strong enough.

    Cons:

    - Size, it is slightly larger and weighs a few grams more than the the rest.

    - The ferrocerium piece seems to be glued onto the magnesium bar, though I have not been able to get it to break off from the magnesium bar.

    OtherThoughts:

    This one consists of half a circular ferrocerium rod attached to a square magnesium bar.

    The coating on the magnesium bar should prevent excessive corrosion.

    It isn't nearly as bulky as the larger magnesium blocks with a tiny ferrocerium strip that will wear out long before you'll ever run out of magnesium.

    Bottomline:

    This is an improved version of the ferrocerium spark match.

    The added magnesium is very useful if you can't find dry tinder.
