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.

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.
