      Simple and effective tool. More work than matches or lighter - but more dependenble, too. It can add peace of mind in backcountry.

              Although I needed this item or at least one like, I desided to try the Swedish Fire Steel. When I received my order, I was extremely pleased.

                  Its a cool toy but it wont beat a bic lighter. A spark generator requires a lot more work than a flame generator to start a fire. Very combustible tinder isnt allways easy to come by.
                  A bic is lighter, cheaper, easier and nearly as reliable.

                            The fire starter was a gift for my husband. He absolutely loved it! He is an avid outdoorsman. This will go with him hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and everywhere else.
