Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month
Lots of flint, nice and compact in the holder.
Works like it should.
It can be tricky to get it started, my knife isn't the same in the picture, there is a round cut-out at the tip that has grooves on it that you would strike the flint with, but it didn't seem to work as well as using the side of the knife.
The whistle and knife are on a separate chain, so they can be separated from the flint. What I did is I just put the flint on the same chain, so one won't be missing from the other.
Ive also seen flints where you cut off a bit of the magnesium (???) casing, then when you get sparks, those bits will start sparking more.
It will last a long time, play with it in a non-windy place and try and get it working. Once you have a knack for it, then try it in the woods or something.
