    This niffy looking little gadget didn't work. No spark in several attempts with multiple releases each time.

    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.

    These are a must have. Very reliable, small, can get wet. One of the 3 sources of fire I always have on me.

    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.

    These were on sale so I thought I would give them a try for bugout bags/car use. Good concept, poor execution. These are heavier, more complicated and much more difficult to us than the standard Swedish "light my fire" rod and steel. These are more difficult to get a big and consistent spark shower with yet appear much more fragile. I think it would be much more difficult to use these to light fine tender with also because the violent pushing motion needed to spark. Pass on this and get the "light my fire" and some magnesium bars or wet fire chemical tender.

    After you scratch off the coating this product really shoots some sparks with little effort.

    I haven't field tested this yet but it is definitely easy to use. Just press down firmly as directed and you have plenty of spark. Compact and light too.
