I break each stick into 3 pieces, using one for getting a campfire going in standard conditions. One whole one, lighting one end and placing it flat so it burns the longest possible time for wet conditions. And in an emergency, you can light 3-4 sticks for a small warming fire. It won't last long, but it would be just long enough to get some larger wood pieces going.
You can't light this with just a flint and steal, but its not intended for that purpose, this is reliable, lightable, shelf stable, fuel. I'd recommend getting some water proof or stomr proof matches to go along with these if you're preparing an emergency kit.
Deffinatly keep some in your bug out bag, its the equivlent of about 5 times the same amount of kindleing, which is just as important as what you light it with.
If you're really cheap, just melt wax and sawdust together yourself, and if you're already in possesion of some, chop up a durolog. Personally I like these better then either of those, they break into smaller peices easier, and burn with less mess.

And the cool thing about these is that you don't need to carry the whole pack with you or anything like that. One stick can start several fires if broken up. Pieces can even be used, then pulled out of the fire before they burn down -- rubbed out in the dirt, and then reused for another fire. So one stick could probably get you three three or four days of backpacking.
Yes, it's true that there are ways to make this kind of thing. And yes it's true that other things -- such as fine steel wool -- make for good fire starters. But I find magnesium sticks a big pain to scrape and work with. These fire sticks just take a match and they're burning enough to get your tinder going. And I think that's awesome.
I've placed 1/3 of a stick in all of my emergency fire-starting kits (along with matches, lighter, fire steel, and various forms of micro-tinder), just as that insurance policy, guaranteeing I'll have flame when I really need it.
This product was NOT given to me as part of any promotion. I bought it after doing some comparison shopping and this review is entirely the result of my own opinions and use of the product.
This is the sort of product that you can casually ignore until the day when you really need to start your camp fire under difficult conditions … and from that day forward you will keep a supply on hand!
A very convenient and compact substitute for fat wood or greasewood kindling … and more compact than paraffin soaked pinecones … and easier to carry in a knapsack.

I love these for camping and also have them in my emergency bag. They have a hard to describe smell, but I like it. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Miss Nani
These allow you to skip tinder completely. If you think I'm talking about the dating app, go buy some chemical fire starter because these probably aren't for you. Read morePublished 3 days ago by LS

Great product. I bought this along with the duraflame firestarters and this work just as good at 1/10th of the price. Under $3 for 12 sticks! Read morePublished 12 days ago by Lack
I'm all about making fires from scratch with Flint and steel but some days I don't want to try. Sometimes it's better to just quickly light a fire and sir back with a beer. Read morePublished 15 days ago by Caustin Dixon
