    Comments about Duluth Trading Fire Starter - Swedish Firesteel:

    I have it next to our home fireplace and use it to start the fire.
    It doesn't make the sulfur smell, as a match does and you don't have to worry about it still being hot when you put it down! If you have a gas fireplace, I wouldn't recommend turning on the gas and then trying to strike it. It took me a couple of times to get it to spark and then "POOF"!

        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. I have run several tests, and in each case I was able to start a fire on the first try. For those of you who are interested in a product such as this, I recommend you try the Swedish Fire Steel!

                    Comments about Duluth Trading Fire Starter - Swedish Firesteel:

                    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.
