    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It is lightweight and very easy to use. Sparks are fine and you will have no problem to light your fire with it. You just need to take off the paint from the stick surface, which is easily done in one or two scraping moves. It does not use much space, it's ...
    Cons:
    None, and don't expect it ever.

    this is the best one on DX

    posted by jochem66 on 01/15/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    I have had multiple versions of flints in my life, so good, some bad. This one is good, I can tell right away. The sparks are good and the stick doesn't wear down fast. You can make 10000 + strike with it. Also, it's really well made, the grip is good and s...
    Cons:
    none so far! Maybe the paint will come off from the striker. Or maybe the striker will get rusty. We'll see, you can always use...

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

    Pros:
    Great sparky tinder fire lighter, (You have to give it a few priming strokes when first using to scrape away surface paint & bite into the rod). The rod does come loose, but I just push it back in & it is fine, you could add a few dabs of glue to se...
    Cons:
    It also says it incorporates a sawtooth, but it must be refering to the scraper part off the unit , which obviously isnt much ...

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

    Pros:
    This is one big flint for the price you are paying. Will last a very long time. I dump it into a bail of water and take out to try. Works instantly even though it's wet all over. Not working fully submerge in water though... Well I guess rain is not a prob...
    Cons:
    There is a black coating you have to scrape of to works. The scraper could a bit made sharper.

    it's worth buying

    posted by darkdoom on 02/24/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This sparkle flint works great. If you go outdoors - take it with you and be sure you CAN light a fire in any condition. I' sure the range finder can be useful. Working with a map or measuring something.
    Cons:
    None of them.
