  • Survival Fire Starter

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Ferro rod throws sparks as intended, easily sets tinder alight. Protective casing is a good idea. Scraper is solid and effective.

    Cons:

    Compass is ineffective and does not work properly. Protective casing is a good idea, but is a little to big and heavy, making the fire starter a little too bulky for an emergency survival kit.

    OtherThoughts:

    Could use O ring seal on thread to make it totally resistant to salt water corrosion. Once black protective coating is scraped from rod, it sparks very easily to start fire.

    Bottomline:

    As a fire starter it works effectively, the compass and protective casing are a good idea but just are not quite right.
