Cool item – Wilderness Survival Fire Sparkle and Blade Cutter Tool Reviews

posted by gm___ on 05/14/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Cheaper than some of the others
Works nicely once you know how to use it
Good build quality (it's only a ferrocerium rod...)
Cons:
Cord isn't quite long enough unless you use the right angle on the scraper carefully...
Other:
Grab a piece of dryer lint. It sounds strange, but it's highly flammable. Pin it down with the end of the stick and send sparks flying at it. It should catch fire quite easily. Then take a piece of paper and light it up off the dryer lint.
Or wrap a tissue around the scraper.
Bottomline:
Buy one, it could be handy!
