The stick broke – Steel Reuseable Matchstick Wilderness Survival Keychain Reviews

posted by ssemjaco on 01/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Explination of the item:
It is a small container for the "match stick". On the side there is a flint stick which you'll strike the match stick against to produce sparks. In addition to the "striker" there is a wick containing kerosene of some sort in the "match stick". This is supposed to ignite, and become the burning match.
Cons:
The striker broke before I managed to produce any sparks. I.e. it never lit. I striked about 5 times before it broke.
Other:
I may have got a bad item. But it may be representative for the build quality. Even so the concept is quite interresting :)
Bottomline:
Buy one and try it, post a new review.
