-Very good for the price.
-When used properly, produces hot brilliant and very useful sparks.
-Lightweight, you can carry it with your knife. Great for camping.
-Good build quality, seems to be going to last for a long time.
-Can really burn things.
-As seen on tv by Bear Grylls on "Man vs Wild" at Discovery Channel.
-Works wet as good as dry. Forget about matches or lighters when camping.
-Requires a little bit of practice to use it properly.
-Remove paint first!
-The blade that comes with it is unsharpened. You must sharpen it well to be able to struck properly. Or, use your own sharp knife.
I'll order some more for gifts, but this time I guess I'll buy for a little more money the one that's thicker. Seems to last much more.
-Very very useful tool... If you enjoy camping and surviving journeys, you MUST HAVE one. Very reliable!
