I really like this product i recommend using the back of the knife for scraping off the shavings and lighting because it works just the same and you wont dull the blade by scraping it over the magnesium stick and striker

Rated 5 out of 5 by bunsenbucketmouth Best starter ive found
The magnesium makes starting fires very easy. i usually shave off a pile about the size of a nickel and it is sufficient to start a fire with ease. It has lasted me for months. I have started dozens of fires with it and it is still going strong. sort of hard on a knife so id recommend using an older knife specifically for the use of fire making.

Rated 5 out of 5 by flstf works as stated
I purchased 2 of these one for my wife's hunting back pack and one for my own. After they arrived her and I went out in the yard, which by the way had 12 inches of snow on it we scrapped a couple small areas with our boots took some dryer lint that we keep for this reason and used the fire starter as the directions said and within a matter of a few mins we each had a nice fire started. We will say that we think it will be a little tough on the knives but after all its an emergency item so we dont see that as really being a major problem....
