Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
-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.
Cons:
-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.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
-Very very useful tool... If you enjoy camping and surviving journeys, you MUST HAVE one. Very reliable!
