The comparable brand name here is Light My Fire Swedish Firesteel, which I own. If you compare, you'll find that this device is more than 3 times less expensive for a similarly sized Swedish Firesteel.
The scraper on this device is better than the scraper that comes with the Swedish Firesteel. This scraper has saw teeth on one edge. The saw teeth are quite effective. The user may also apply the opposite edges to generate sparks. The opposite straight edge may be sharpened at 90 degree square angles if it gets dull. So, the scraper will last longer than the rod if you maintain the scraper.
The handle is outstanding and allows a firm grasp. I bought three of these devices. None of the handles were loose (which was a problem for another viewer).
I own about 15 ferro rods, including rods from Light My Fire and from Firesteel. This rod may be my favorite.
Buy it, or waste your time researching to confirm my review.
