      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.)

            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"!

                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!
