Nice to Have
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.

very effective
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.
