  • Common sparkler

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Nice flint. I suppose it's cheap magnesium one, but it makes nice sparka and is quite thick.

    Opener is good.

    Rangefinder (ruler) is precise.

    Cons:

    Flint doesnt hold in handle well. After about four to eight good strikes it came off and you must put it back.

    This could be fixed, but for the price...

    OtherThoughts:

    You really need to know how to light fire with this. With good fine dry base you're capable to start a fire in few minutes (do nice sparks and bit blowing...)

    Bottomline:

    It's common spark flint, good enough for that price, but if I count loose flint handle, the price is not so good.

    If you like it, try it. If you not, try another one. On DX is quite a selection.
