Closeouts. Make eGear's flint fire starter a constant piece of gear in your pack to ensure you never get caught in the backcountry without a fire source; the included flint and striking blade create sparks to quickly start a fire with dry tinder.

Have a few of these for emergency fire starter. You should always consider to have multiple fire sources. Storm proof matches, lighter, and magnesium striker. Will start a fire all the time. Consider using vaseline-soaked cotton balls as tinder.

Wouldn't take backpacking. Too big and heavy compared to the other flints I have bought at STP. It is good to get one for your car and/or hiking pack. I bought a few extra for trinkets to make my friends happy. One is using it to light his home's gas stove.

This is the second one I've ordered. Truly, and indispensable piece of equipment for emergency situations. You should always have several options to make fire. Matches, lighter, and a flint striker like this one. Easily starts a fire using magnesium shavings and then striking sparks.

Product worked well for teaching purposes. The price made it too good to pass up. I don't know how well they will hold up under long term usage, but was satisfied. Younger scouts had a little difficulty, but nothing that was insurmountable.

Add this to your survival kit for the uncertainty that threatens us all. It is a good tool to have when you need to start a fire to keep warm or cook your food.
It's also good to have when you go camping. Just throw it in with your other tools in your survival kit.
