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.

Absolutely terrible. Compared to my unbranded flint steel lighter, the Primus steel lighter is harder to get a spark. The striker is equally horrible as well. Now I did an experiment to test the case against my Chinese made steel lighter that I bought for something like 6$ from an outdoor shop.

Unbranded Striker + Unbranded Flint = Fireworks like it's Christmas. You sometimes get sizable embers that remain lit for 1 - 2 seconds if you do a firm and strong strike.
Primus Striker + Primus Flint = You get a set of sparks for every 3 strikes if you are lucky. The sparks are tiny and gone in a flash of a second
Primus Striker + Unbranded Flint = Good amount of sparks, but not as good as the all unbranded combination.
Unbranded Striker + Primus Flint = You get sparks on every strike, though not as big and are gone in a flash.

I bought the Primus steel lighter because I am fan of their products. I have the Omnilite TI stove and their pot systems - excellent stuff. But am I extremely disappointed with this one.

If you are lighting a stove, the Primus Steel Lighter is probably more than enough to ignite a flame. It's lightweight, and has a very comfortable grip feel to it. I am hesitant to recommend this if you are trying to light tinders/cotton balls soaked in petroleum jelly in a back country.

Me and my wife go camping, backpacking, and motorcycle camping.

I always bring a flint-steel with me as a just in case. this one has a large flint rod it is easy to hold and the steel has a large grip making it easy to get a large amount of sparks perfect for making a fire when you’re in a pinch. they are bound to gather with par cord and it is long enough to use without removing it.
