    don't be fooled by this firestarter

    posted by cantstopshopper on 07/22/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Be careful when you order and look at the actual strip of magnesium- it's not the whole stick. The magnesium is just the thin rod embedded in a plain metal rod. this item looks like sku 12305 at first glance, but it is much less magnesium for only about a d...
    Cons:
    Mine was not glued to the thumb grip when I got it. I belive this happens with this sku a lot. I think the metal is aluminum- ...

    Great Value and Solid Product

    posted by cantstopshopper on 01/23/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    What a deal! Very affordable, but more than that, it is a good value. I mean by this you get a lot for your small investment. Operating it is simple as anything and very intuitive. Clear screen, decent resolution, fast loading for a single processor. Come...
    Cons:
    The camera is not good in low light. The mic is not good in Skype. It is a >$70 tablet so it isn't the fastest.

    good firestarter - works every time

    posted by cantstopshopper on 07/10/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I've said it before for all the other firestarters from DX I have; this is a great product. Very affordable and very reliable. Just scrape the magnesium, get a spark, set something on fire with it, and make the fire as big as you need it.
    Cons:
    I say no cons given the price and consistent ease of use along with how long lasting it is

    another great firestarter and will last very long

    posted by cantstopshopper on 07/10/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    if you don't already have one- then start right here. Works exactly the same a the 20$ versions sold in stores. No survival kit should be without one. Also it's just plain cool for starting any fire. Works every time, even in heavy rain.
    Cons:
    none- seriously. Look at the price... what are you gonna complain about? the handle has never come off or been even a little lo...

    glad to have it- now I can keep shopping at work!

    posted by cantstopshopper on 07/10/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    What can I say? it works exactly as it says it will- and I love it. Nobody even notices it on my monitor and I now have a fish eye wide angle view of the aisle behind my desk. No more having my boss or anyone else sneaking up on me while I'm surfing the web...
    Cons:
    build is only average- not intended for rough use- meant to be placed and left alone- the mirror is plastic- works fine but is ...

    correction to my review- plastic washers

    posted by cantstopshopper on 05/29/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    In my earlier review I stated all parts are metal- I did several knife reviews in a row and was copy/pasting much of the common info into each review- -In fact not all parts are metal- the washers at the blade pivot point are plastic/nylon material
    Cons:
    I dropped my involvement level to general as a self imposed penalty given my careless mistake
