    don't be fooled by this firestarter

    posted by cantstopshopper on 07/22/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Be careful when you order and look at the actual strip of magnesium- it's not the whole stick. The magnesium is just the thin rod embedded in a plain metal rod. this item looks like sku 12305 at first glance, but it is much less magnesium for only about a d...
    Cons:
    Mine was not glued to the thumb grip when I got it. I belive this happens with this sku a lot. I think the metal is aluminum- ...

    Flint and steel magnesium fire rod

    posted by LostDude on 05/03/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a very cheap survival fire rod, and it works well. OK build quality. Will make tinder catch fire when it is wet. Small size makes it portable while string makes it easy to cary and to find on your bag.
    Cons:
    None so far, only the the black cord is a little too thin and flimsy. Can be swapped ofcourse.

    Add Some Spark to Your Life

    posted by Feltrex on 02/05/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A fairly lightweight, durable and top quality survival tool for any situation where you urgently need fire - works in wind, damn conditions, and can take with virtually any type of kindling with a couple of repeated strikes.
    Cons:
    Slightly larger than you might want to carry everywhere with you, but otherwise definitely worth it.

    The diameter is about 10mm but the sparkling metal is only 4mm diameter. The rest is just steel. It is a litle too heavy with a...
