  1. :

    I purchased this fire starter for an upcoming trip to the Canadian Rockies, where I’ll be doing some camping and hiking. Once you strike it a few times and get passed the initial coating, its sparks perfectly. The unit is light and compact and can easily fit in your pocket… However, the scrapper does have “teeth” to it, while not very prominent, there is potential to possibly snag your pocket lining or irritate through thin clothing. I’d recommend putting this in a small cloth bag if you were to carry it on your person if doing a lot of hiking or climbing. If you’re carrying a backpack, it can easily stow away in a small pocket. If I were to base my rating on the fire starter alone, it would absolutely get 5 stars easy.The other features are a compass and whistle. The compass is aesthetically pleasing and that’s the best I can say about it. Do not rely on it, sub par unfortunately. The whistle is a smidge better, it works but takes some effort and doesn’t have the volume/pitch that I would really like in an emergency situation. It’ll get your dog’s attention, though. Its not taking up any additional room, so its really just a bonus.To recap: Fire starter is perfect for my purposes- solid 5 stars. Whistle and compass- bonus features that come up short. At this price point (close to 8 bucks), I’m incredibly happy with my purchase and do recommend. Pair with a small tin of char cloth. All fire starters are useless if you can’t get dry tinder.

  2. :

    Tried it out and produced sparks to light up cotton balls with Vaseline. It’s pretty beefy in the hand.

  3. :

    Great fire steel. Around 3″ of exposed ferro rod. The whistle is not very easy to get sound out of, but when you do, it’s loud as all get out. The compass is microscopic, but is accurate enough for general direction. The handle portion is somewhat off center, so between that and the minor annoyances, 4/5 stars, but yes, would buy again (as long as it stays under $8… 😉
