I love this firestarter. It really does the job each and every time!

Pros

  • Thick, easy to grab and use handles
  • If you angle it right (takes a little practice) it will consistently throw a big shower of sparks
  • Waterproof tinder storage for cotton balls

Cons

  • Lanyard is too short to carry around your neck.
  • It also takes a little practice to get it "just right" but it is well worth it!

Overall I think this is a great product and I am quite happy with my purchase!!

Positives

  • robust
  • storage compartment
  • whistle
  • lanyard

Negatives

  • difficult to get a good direction on spark
  • difficult to get a good spark
  • storage compartment is small, quite small
  • whistle is weak and difficult to use
  • heavy
  • did I mention this weighs a lot
  • a little on the large size

I tested it against two other striker type Strikers and then got rid of it.

Didn't bother taking it on even one camp trip.

Price Paid: too much
