good and functional flint/striker – Flint Stick and Striker with Cylinder Case - Black + Orange Reviews

posted by smar2 on 12/07/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- strong sparking (very easy to set paper on fire) - hard rubberised handles (not slippery while using the flint and striker) - the flint is thick enough as not to break during normal usage, even with more pressure applied to it
Cons:
- although this isn't really a con, the plastic tubular "case" is not unusable after you open it. A reusable stronger "case" would have been nice.
Other:
It is very easy to set paper on fire, I also tried with tree bark small pieces and I couldn't set them on fire without using a small paper fire starter. It would prove useful to also have a piece of dry paper when planning to use the flint/striker.
Bottomline:
It's a good, functional product. Buy one if you are into hiking, camping or mountaineering.
