much better alternatives out there - keith - 04/07/2012 14:51:50
looks good on paper but in reality not so good in practice. the fire steel is really small which i know may be handy for those with minimal spaces but proves to be a royal pain in the arse to get anything lit. the scraper digs large grooves into the steel which doesnt stand very far from the casing its in furthur complicating things. on the plus side the tube it comes in is good for filling with matches and the tinder supplied isnt bad. i wouldnt get another purely on the useless fire steel performance. ( i do have a full size one which does work without the above problems)
