      by fromAlways gets the fire going If you're looking for an easy way to get a fire going, I'd suggest this. It's easy to use and I've never had any problems getting a fire going, even after a weeks worth of rain. That said, if you don't know how to build a fire, this isn't going to magically make a roaring fire for you, but it might help.

      by fromMissing something Unlike the other two reviews, I found these hard to light and that they did not burn very hot. Not buying them again.

      by fromDoes What it Says Wanted to start a fire to make smores. After trying with only the flint and striker on dry grass & leaves and not quite getting it going, I got one of these out and a after a few flicks of the flint it was burning and started the fire easily.
