I have tried this several times. I struck it, like, 100 times trying to light a pile of brush on fire. plenty of dry leaves, etc. Gave up and lit it with one swipe of a match. If starting a fire would save your life, you may be able to get it to light one for you, but I would bring a butane lighter or matches along just in case I found myself in that situation. It does shoot cool sparks all over the place, and for that it is kind of impressive.
