Used it twice to check that it works and the magnesium rod broke.
Frustrating because I waited a while for this, but I must say I am pleased that amazon refunded me without requiring that I send the item back which would have been quite annoying.

I have had experience with a few different steel matches over the years but this one really throws alot of sparks out with relative ease. Some of the steel matches you really have to force the scraper to get results. Not with this one. Moderate pressure is all that is needed and a shower of sparks will come flying off of this thing. Money well spent.

Tested this against my firesteel.com gobspark and it made a lot of sparks but they didn't seem to last very long compared to the gobspark. It took several strikes to light a cottonball soaked in petroleum jelly where the gobspark did it on the first try(keep in mind I have hardly used these and it does take a bit of practice to develop the best technique). I figured out that the striker that comes with the gobspark is a better striker by a little bit. I think the flat edge of the primus striker is actually better than the serrated side. The only other downside is the lanyard is a little too short but it's elastic shock cord so you can still get the a full stroke from it. It's pretty thick and has a nice handle and if you know what you're doing you should be able to get a fire going with it.

Edit: the thought occurred to me that the gobspark may have had an unfair advantage. I lit the cottonball with the gobspark and blew it out and then tried to light it with this. What I should have done was pulled the ball apart more to make sure there was still some frayed areas for the sparks to catch. That in mind they weren't too far apart before I thought of that so with that in mind I'd guess they were pretty evenly matched.
