Good Fire Starter – Wilderness Survival Fire Sparkle + Blade Cutter Tool (Large) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
It's rather big and I like that. It's somewhat heavy even. I don't know if the spark are indeed 3000 degrees, I have to doubt that, but if you need a spark, this bad boy will definetely do the job for you. But you will have to be clever though, remember: it's just sparks, not a flame, so you'll have to work a little to actually get a fire working.
Cons:
-comes with a paint on him that is ignite proof, but it makes sense to come this way.
Other:
I found out that the best sparks comes out if you use glasspaper, man, what sparks, they are much bigger comparred to the piece of steel there, and think the glass paper prolonges the life of this firesteel rod.
Bottomline:
Usefull, but you will have to find out how it workes best for you. Sparkes alone doesn't make a fire, paper, small bits of wood, etc.
