Coghlan's Magnesium Fire Starter
Price Paid: $10
DOES NOT WORK!!! Buy something else. Don't waste your money.
I made a pile via pare. Yes the stick made sparks but pile of magnesium never caught fire. We then put a lighter to pile of metal BUT IT NEVER CAUGHT FIRE. Doesn't work even when using a match.
Terrible. JUNK!! If you don't believe me waste your money and try it.
