Mmm, not so handy... – Flint Survival Tool Kit (Flint Stick + Blunt Blade + Whistle) Reviews

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

Pros:
It has good stuff together, whistle, a blade. You want to have as much small stuff that can save you for those first few days, when you are in trouble. The flint stick is nice and thick and can be retracted into the holder. When you are too tired to scream, a whistle can do so much more.
Cons:
The stick that needs to be scratched is loose, when you are striking it, it almost falls out and I'm afraid it will in the future. All the stuff is apart from eachother so when you are not careful, you might lose an item, making it harder to use properly. The stick is rather short, alltogether maybe too big for my taste as well.
Other:
All those things the cons are and then fixed!
Bottomline:
Still a reasonable item, but I'd rather wish I'd chosen some other product that has the same things. So, see for yourself which one you want to choose. But in the end, they can all come in handy when you need to survive.
