Nice & Fun to use – Wilderness Survival Fire Sparkle + Blade Cutter Tool Reviews

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

Pros:
It's so cheaaap!
Very sturdy build quality
Produces really strong sparks when struck with a metal object. It can definatelly make stuff go on fire if used correctly.
Comes with a Striker tool. The sparks can fly quite a long distance.
Cons:
The striker tool is kind of flimsy and it gets some time getting used to it.
Works better when you strike it with a sharp knife.
Other:
To make it work all you have to do is to shave off the black plastic-like stuff and expose the metal underneath. Also strike it under a 90 degree angle for best results.
Bottomline:
Great to use at night and amuse your friends.
Also could be a life saver if all else fails when you get stranded in the mountain all alone without a lighter or matches. AQnd besides-it's so friggin' cheap!
