A long, loooong flint – Steel Reuseable Matchstick Wilderness Survival Keychain Reviews

posted by Gamleged on 01/21/2009 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
. Cotton-stuffed body holds a lot of lighter fluid
. Screw-in striker cap has an O-ring to retard fluid evaporation
. Has a long flint embedded in a channel in the side, should last a good many camping trips
. Nice mini-clip to attach to keychain
Cons:
No retainer for screw in/out steel striker/wick, be careful not to drop it where you can't find it!
Other:
A few squirts of lighter fluid into the top opening will saturate the cotton inside, allowing the cotton wick to absorb fluid via osmosis, when inserted.
Bottomline:
Cheap and reliable and not much to break, should last a good long time
