I was pretty wary of the Bear Grylls fire starter from the start because celebrity-branded tools are almost always a marketing ploy and can't actually stand up the real-world condition. Even though it started out at the bottom of the pack, this one beat all comers and produced the results I needed under terrible outdoor conditions. I had zero problems producing huge sparks onto kindling that allowed us to get a roaring fire going in 40-degree temps with 100% humidity, under pouring rain, with a group of boys who desperately needed to get warm and dry after having their campsite, clothing and gear all flooded out and submerged.
-The two halves are actually large enough to get a secure grip while working with the tool. Many other fire starter tools are either too small to comfortably work with OR they are awkwardly shaped. Trust me, this is a big deal- the last thing you'll have in cold and/or wet conditions is fine motor control.
-Inexpensive. It's cheaper on Amazon with Prime shipping than anywhere else, even at a local store.
-Sparks are huge and take almost no effort to make.
-Fully sealed, but doesn't get affected by humidity or water anyway.
-Morse code distress signals and whistle are nice touches.
-The included survival guide is actually worth reading and keeping.
-The storage compartment on the back end (that comes with a cotton ball inside) is too small for anything other than one cotton ball. Don't count on this tiny compartment to meet your kindling needs.
-Orange "paint" used for the printed SOS signals can be rubbed off easily since it's on the trip itself.
Don't spend unnecessary money on a machined-steel fire starter, one that requires precise finger movement, or one that relies on mechanical moving parts. This is the one you've been looking for.
