  • Mmmm sparky fun!

    Well after a bit of faffing about, the black protective covering was rubbed off enough to show the metal inside. Once this was done there are heaps of sparks and a good whiff of smoke from each stroke.


    You've got to stroke the full length of the rod, and use a decent amount of downwards pressure to make a lot of sparks.
    I've not managed to set fire to anything yet, but haven't really been trying.
    The item weighs more than a lighter and a lot more than some matches. A weight-conscious tramper might not bother.
    The cord tying the two is too short for comfortable stroking. Untie them or replace with a longer lace.


    I'm tempted to try some high speed photos just to see how they turn out. One of these days....
    I'm also a bit worried that the striker might strike a spark from the rod when in the pocket or something.
    This item would be useless for lighting a gas welding torch.


    Bit of a gimmick, but a fun toy.
