I use the Firesteel 2.0 and vaseline/cottonball tinder to start all of my fires now. It is easy, waterproof, and failsafe as long as you have two good hands (you'll have to get creative if you have one hand injured or otherwise). No moving parts, small, lightweight, and nothing to break as long as you treat it with reasonable care. I have also ordered several as gifts, and they are always welcome.

I've used other Light My Fire firesteels before, the ones with the plastic grip. I was surprised by how much more I like the wooden handle. Plus the thumb grip on the striking blade with the built-in whistle is a nice addition. This is an awesome product. I do suggest using your pocket knife to strike with though. I was able to get much larger sparks that way, being more successful to start a flame. Though, that may not be suggested by the manufacturer.

AWESOME PRODUCT ! This is the one product you must have in order to survive besides a good knife, water and knowledge. I bought a bunch of these to keep in my bug-out bags, my jackets and cars. I used one of these for S..E.R.E school and it never failed me. It throws a shower of sparks onto your tinder to light them up. All you need to do is slide the striker along the oak handles rod. It's good for 3000 strikes and has a whistle built in to the striker. The Swedish Army version is supposed to be good for 12,000 strikes.
