Do not buy! Find the real thing instead!
This item is a real disappointment. The string is cheap polypropylene. The "Fastex-looking" zipper pull is a crumby knockoff with excess plastic around the edges. The metal striker is rough all the way around and could easily cut it's way through a fabric pouch over time. The rod and handle are cheap-looking and when struck - it is very difficult to produce sparks. It took several attempts to even begin producing sparks. I have a real Swedish firesteel and it has always produced intense sparks. I'll probably sell this one at a yard sale or give it away.

Great fire steel
Gave it 5 stars because it fits my Benchmade Bushcrafter 162 sheath to a tee and you can tie off the para cord to the D ring but the steel striker is JUNK just take two pairs of pliers and twist it and it will break off and use your knife blade to strike with..

Pros: Overall Quality, Ease of Use
Cons: None
Better than the smaller alternatives
Compared to its smaller cousins in the same series it produces a much higher number of sparks which increases its chanses of a successfull ignition. The wear is about the same as any other firesteel I have used but due to the quantity of material it will have a longer lifetime. I have used both this and the smaller versions in the Swedish Armed Forces but this is the size that I also use privately. Both versions has held up in wet and sub-zero temperatures this far. For those who have problems with its usage: It comes with a thin layer of coating to prevent corrosion, you will have to remove this in order to produce sparks (just a couple of grinds with the flat metal scraper it comes with). Learning how to use a firesteel takes time and practise makes perfect, buy some cheaper firesteel to practise on (as you will eat up alot of material with the wrong techniques and overall practise).
