Cheap and not worth the money. Reviewed by Hawk on Mar 26, 2015   1 out of 5

Read the description this is an aluminum bar with a ferrocerium rod attached. It is not a magnesium bar and cannot be shaved to ignite with the ferro rod. For $6 you can buy a ferrocerium rod that is much larger and will work better or get the Coleman magnesium bar. The only reason I gave it 1 star was for the tiny ferro rod which fell of since it was glued with only two small drops of epoxy and the striker is worthless. Overall this is cheap and would not use it in an emergency.

I think you've got it wrong guys. With most strikers like this, the block is not aluminum, but magnesium the serrations on the end of the striker are for shaving off bits of magnesium and then igniting them with sparks from the flint a great fire starter that works even when wet.

Ok....this was cheap but it works GREAT! The only thing i would and did change is what i used for a striker. Y have HUGE hands and the lil bitty striker just didn't do it for me. So i used a cheap smalll pocket knife that is razor sharp. And that did the trick! I am usually not dissapointed by anything i purchase from BudK! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!

SPARKIE ONLY Reviewed by Tom Homer on Jan 23, 2014   3 out of 5

It is a striker only just like Daniel said, below. I thought it was a bar of magnesium but it turned out to be just a long piece of flint in a block of aluminium... Yes, it does makes sparks and will start a fire but I think I will give this one away to somebody I don't like. Happy trails.

was slightly irrated with this product upon the first strike the flint came out of the steel base but in retro spect u get what you pay for.

It's only a striker and not a magnesium block like I thought. Guess I should have read the description instead of just dropping it in my cart. I'm glad I tried it out first before relying on it in an emergency. The striker works and I was able to start a fire BUT I will replace it with a true magnesium bar and striker combo. My fault for not paying attention, Won't happen again. But for 4 bucks it beats a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

100% reliable and cheap Reviewed by jswi2374 on Aug 07, 2011   4 out of 5

There are more modern ways to start a fire but you can't beat the Mg fire-starter! No moving parts to break or lose. No chemicals to run out of, leak, dry out, or melt other gear. Water and weatherproof. For under $5, this will last for decades. And it looks pretty cool when you use it, too!
