Why waste time and energy finding kindling with regular fire starters that may or may not even catch a spark?! Regular twigs and branches in their natural environments will not light unless they are extremely dry.
With this reliable pocket-sized tool, you will always be ready to start a fire. Our fire starter comes complete with a solid compact magnesium bar that can be used hundreds of times, or until the magnesium runs out. Simply shave some magnesium into a pile and easily spark the shavings (yes, even in wet or humid surroundings). The shavings will quickly spark into a flame so you can ignite larger pieces of wood.
Waterproof, weatherproof, and built for long-lasting durability—this is an essential addition to your supplies for camping, hiking, trekking, boating, hunting, travel, survival and emergencies. As a bonus, we have included a mini compass to help supplement your navigation needs.
• Overall dimensions: 3” x ⅜” x 1”
• Conveniently compact size
• Waterproof & weatherproof
• Solid magnesium body (silver color)
• Black flint striking rod
• Serrated metal striker
• Mini compass—size: 4.5mm x 20mm dia.
• Detachable silver ball chain link
HOW TO USE:
1 – Gather tinder (dry branches, bark, grass, pine needles, lint, paper, etc.) of the preferred size/amount.
2 – Use the serrated edge of the striker to scrape along the length of the magnesium rod to create shavings.
3 – You can either sprinkle the magnesium shavings throughout the tinder pile, or scrape the shavings into a cluster to the minimum size of a U.S. quarter coin.
4 – Then hold the flint at an angle over the pile, while forcefully sliding your striker along the length of the flint to create sparks.
5 – Continue to slide the striker against the flint until the sparks land directly onto the shavings pile and ignite a flame.
For first-time use, stripping the protective layer of paint from the striker before starting your fire will help produce the best results.

It's inexpensive enough to have several, and I highly recommend keeping one in your home emergency kit and one in each of your car emergency kits, especially if you live somewhere cold and sparsely populated. I grew up in Minnesota, and every bad blizzard, someone went off the road and had to wait hours (or more) for help. This, some dry food and chocolate, mylar blankets, and some rolled up newspaper logs (do not burn things inside the car - you know this - I'm just mentioning it in case someone doesn't) in a dry bag will get you through.
Upon receiving the Fire starter I replaced the chain that connects the stricker and magnesium rod with a length of 550 para cord. This way I always have access to some sort of kindling by removing the inner strands of the para cord, while still being able to use the outer layer of para cord to keep the stricker and fire starter connected, It's important to scrap off the coating that is on the Fire starter before being able to produce a spark. When you scrap past the black coating the magnesium on the inside will look silver like the metal handle and will produce a large spark.
The key to making this fire starter start a quick fire is to scrap a small pile of magnesium off the rod into a pile on your kindling, roughly the size of a U.S quarter, or a 1 inch circle (25.4mm). Then quickly run the stricker down the length of the magnesium to create spark and ignite the pile of magnesium that is in your kindling.
The night I received this my family and I had a small campfire, I was quite impressed with how easy it was to create a fire with this fire starter. I would most definetly recommend this product and for the price you can't go wrong!
Spend the extra few dollars and get a Doan Magnesium Fire Starter, or just a Firesteel Armageddon. Both of them are much easier to use and far more reliable.
I gave it 2 stars because it does technically work, and it is cheap, I just wouldn't rely on it.
