A really good and durable fire making device! – Wilderness Survival Fire Sparkle Flint + Opener + Sawtooth + Map Rangefinder + Compass (Black) Reviews

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

Pros:
- Its quite a good fire sparkle, with obviously fine cover (fully metal, seems very good and durable). I think its worth the money. - The cable has enough lenght to get lots of sparkle with this metal piece on it. By the way, you can use any other longer rope, if u find it short... - The compass is working, maybe not that super precise, but it has a small size, mabye thatswhy. I think you can get to every where with it on a trip. - As i see it, you can use it many times, the abrasion is not that fast.
Cons:
Not at all, a very good buy for that amount of money.
Other:
The stone in it has a slim black (some kind of material) cover on it, so you have to scratch it a bit, to get it work. You can raise fire on any paper or paper hanky with that! (Just remember that sometimes with some weak scratching, you have to get a few stone powder from the rod on the paper, then you can have fire for sure...)
Bottomline:
I had used it already several times (about 20-30, maybe just to show it to others :), and it still don't shows serious abrasion.
