  1. Nice To Have 4 Star Review

    Posted by

    I bought this product because a fellow cadet in my rotc unit recommended it. I like the strike point very well, but the magnesium takes forever to shave it into a small pile. Also, i just keep mine in my coat pocket because it adds too much bulk to my key chain.

  2. Very Effective 4 Star Review

    But scraping the shavings takes a little time to get a good sized pile. Otherwise, this is an excellent emergency firestarter. Also can be used for signaling by scraping the flint bar.
