    Comments about Duluth Trading Fire Starter - Swedish Firesteel:

    I bought this on a whim to include in his birthday gift and was pleased when both he and my future son-in-law seemed excited to have it. (I bought two so the future son-in-law will get one for his birthday as well.)

          Comments about Duluth Trading Fire Starter - Swedish Firesteel:

          Bought 4 Fire Starters for my computer connected sons-in-law and grandsons for Christmas. I wanted to introduce old school "flint and steel" technology to their digital worlds.
          Thes guys loved the lesson and fought to use their Swedish Firesteels to light fires in the fireplace. MAN MAKE FIRE.........didn't watch on computer screen.

          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"!
