Decent firesteel. – Wilderness Survival Fire Sparkle Flint + Opener + Sawtooth + Map Rangefinder Reviews

posted by Luc999 on 06/09/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Decent firesteel, the rod is ok even though it's not really glued well to the platic handle, mine got out of it in a few strokes of the firesteel.
-Rod length is 2 3/4 in.
-Rod diameter is 5/16 in.
-Total length is 4 in.
-Interesting striker/ bottle opener/ map measuring ruler. (km/mm)
Cons:
Not well attached to the handle. The striker is not quite sharp enough to produce big particles of incandescent magnesium. I would rather use it with a sharp knife for better efficience.
The bottle opener comes in handy but it is WAY too thin to be comfortable opening bottle with this. It hurt pretty badly when i tried to open one
Other:
Bottomline:
Why not, good product overall.
