Very good fire starter. Can be used one handed if you don't feel enough leverage on solid ground. Simply press and push the rod with index finger, you will get enough spark to start your tinder. NICE! At this price i may order a couple more.

If you can't light a fire with this "Then stay out of the woods". This is a good device due to the fact that it can be used with only one hand. Try that with most of the others. It pulls a lot of magnesium with each stroke and the sparks are hot and long lasting which makes it nice if the wind is blowing. I've tried several other flints and this one far surpasses the others in intensity and practicability including the 2 piece one with the fancy orange grips.

I spent 30 minutes trying to light shredded birch bark with this lighter. I couldn't get it to work. I got sparks, but the bark wouldn't light. My thumbs got very sore. This would not be my first choice. I am still looking for something better.

There are those times when everything is wet and the lighter won't light, this will still work, simple, handy, threw it in the pack, it's there if I need it.
Played with it a little, easy to use and powerful spark action.
