This is a very cheap survival fire rod, and it works well.
OK build quality.
Will make tinder catch fire when it`s wet!
After some use (about 100 strikes) the plastic part fell off, but it can be fixed with some glue.
It will take some practice to make enough sparks for the magnesium to ignite.
Also it will take time to scrape off enough magnesium.
The rod consists off two materials. A ferrocerum rod half encapsulated in magnesium.
And of course we have the steel plate.
If you want to make a fire get some tinder, then scrape magnesium from the rod onto the tinder.
When you have got a decent amout of magnesium, strike the steel plate over the ferrocerum rod so the sparks hits the magnesium scrapings.
A good first time fire rod.
Would buy again!
