I used it in rowing trip, after flipping of my canoe. All my staff were wet and I was completely frozen. Even with ... Read more
It's rather big and I like that. It's somewhat heavy even. I don't know if the spark are indeed 3000 degrees, I have to doubt that, but if you need a spark, this bad boy will definetely do the job for you. But you will have to be clever though, remember: it's just sparks, not a flame, so you'll have to work a little to actually get a fire working. -... Read more

Great size. Well made. Very nice handles on both the rod and the scraper. The scraper is very effective, and combined with the length of the rod makes it very easy to start a fire. The price is fantastic. It'd be hard to find another one of this quality that's any cheaper. Absolutely none. It does what it's supposed to do and does it well. I liked it ... Read more
The stick is very long, so you have all the space to make the sparkles. I had a fire in less then 5 minutes for the first time! There are no big cons, but the rope is not long enough to use the whole stick. This is quick dissolved with a longer robe, ore when you take it off. A other thing, is the protection layer due to the magnesium stick. It is a ... Read more
The comparable brand name here is Light My Fire Swedish Firesteel, which I own. If you compare, you'll find that this device is more than 3 times less expensive for a similarly sized Swedish Firesteel. The scraper on this device is better than the scraper that comes with the Swedish Firesteel. This scraper has saw teeth on one edge. The saw teeth are ... Read more

-It's huge (compared to most availabe versions of this) -It comes with a good striking tool -Small, yet easy to hold handle -Fantastic price for it's size -Noone this far. I got many of these kind of lighters from before, but all of them were smaller, and more expensive. Sure, a small one is easier to have at hand, but this is easier to use. Especially ... Read more

The jagged edge make it real easy to create a nice amount of sparks. - The attached string is long enough for easy usage. - Huge rod size. - half price (than NYC's Chinatown) None really.

- Build quality is good, nothing flimsy or shoddy. - No cons. See my "Ferrocerium rod length and ... Read more
