The Survival Sparkl® combines three pieces of essential survival gear into one compact tool. The fire starter kit includes a magnesium fire starter rod, a large striker, a high quality compass, and a 150 DB emergency whistle- all conveniently strung together on a lanyard for safe keeping. Built to last, our fire starter lights up to 15,000 times, and is an essential for outdoor activities including camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, and as part of your emergency survival supplies. Survival Spark prevents you from ever being caught in the cold as it is weather resistant, cold resistant and windproof.
Whether you are lighting a campfire, bonfire, BBQ, or just need a quick flame, the Survival Spark has you covered. No need to fumble around with matches--simply shave a small amount of magnesium from the rod onto your tinder using the serrated side of the scraper. The amount needed is approximately the size of a US quarter. Next, hold the rod at an angle over the pile and forcefully slide your striker along the length of the rod until sparks land directly on the magnesium shavings and ignite the fire. For best results, strip the protective layer of paint from the striker before starting your fire.
Dead End Survival Co.® manufactures the highest quality survival gear for men and women. Whether you are hunting, camping, fishing, biking, hiking or just like to be prepared, our gear prepares you for the unexpected. For the ultimate survival bundle, pair the Survival Spark with our Survival Watch, Paracord Bracelet, Grenade Emergency Keychain, and/or Survival Shack.
The Survival Spark® is the ultimate survival gear accessory. Order yours today and experience the peace of mind that comes with being prepared!

The rod itself seems to throw ample sparks and it is long enough that it is easier to use than the stubs that many firesteels resemble. I had my wife and daughter using them and getting fires started using tinder having never used a firesteel before in about 15 minutes after showing them technique. Some pros and cons of this firesteel are as follows:
- Incredibly low price point (I received two of these for under $10).
- Long rod makes it easier to use than the majority of firesteels which are maddeningly short.
- Built in compass and emergency whistle. These are simply icing on an already delicious cake.
- Lanyard is the perfect length for striking.
- Scraper works very well and is also multi-use with the "toothed" edge side.
- Throws good sparks and works very well doing what it was made for.
- Probably my favorite handle of any firesteel that I have ever used.
- Compass can be a bit finicky at times, but it can be coaxed into finding North with minimal effort, and it is built into the handle which can theoretically replace a compass in get-home-bag/kit if you are short on space.
- Whistle is a bear to use. You will probably get light-headed trying to get it's full volume, but it is still functional and is once again included on the handle making it a great space-saver. I would definitely consider this aback-up whistle though, as opposed to more functional compass.
- May make you feel silly spending a bunch more money for a less-versatile product.
In conclusion, this firesteel, to me, is an incredible value and can even be useful as more than just a firestarter. I would say that this is a great purchase for a first-time firesteel user as it's longer-than-normal length makes it more forgiving, and it can be used by the beginner in almost no time. This product is also easier to use than many other firesteel thanks to it's well-designed handle, and it throws sparks as well as any of my other firesteels. The built in compass and emergency whistle make this thing an exceptional value, and at the price-point the is little excuse not to have one of these with you at all times (in every vehicle, as well as your packs).
Overall, this multi-use firesteel is a great value and I highly recommend it for prepared-minded people and avid outdoorsmen/women alike!
I would have given this a 5 star review if it were more easy to use ambidextrously. It is designed to hold the stick with the left hand and move the striker with the right hand. The striker has one sharp face to it and the way the lanyard is tied you can not use the sharp face of the striker in your left hand. Of course, if you untie the lanyard it can be easily used in the left hand. Suggestion: put a hole on either side of the striker so it could be tied in either direction.
The compass on mine doesn't want to float and spin freely, takes a little effort to make it work properly. However, I didn't buy it for the compass so it isn't a big deal.
Not crazy about the black color, would be easy to lose it in the woods. I tied a piece of blaze orange surveyor's ribbon to it and I think that will make it easier to see on the ground, see photo.
I figured out how to make the whistle work. Cover just the back edge of the rod holder with the lips and with the compass on the left. Takes a little practice but it will work. Helps to hold your mouth in the shape it would be if you had a big rubber ball inside it. If you bogart the back of the rod holder with your lips, she ain't gonna blow.
