Once I did the initial strike to clear of the covering it sparked perfectly. My tinder of choice is cotton wool which caught first time. It also lit my gas stove on first strike. Perhaps I have a newer refined version than the previous reviews
This is a good firesteel. The lanyard provided is long enough that it allows the striker to be used comfortably while striking the firesteel. works wet and dry as advertised. The problem is with the composition of the fire steel. Although it produces a good shower of sparks, the sparks are NOT hot enough to make the tinder catch fire. I have tried firesteels of different brands and they set the tinder on fire at the first strike. I have already left a feedback about this product at the store. I hope they improve the quality

good size, decent shower of sparks
A great sparker, thoroughly reccomended!
Great sparks straight away and easy to use
It projects sparks very well and they've helpfully embossed only one side of the strike plate so you know which side should be facing up when you use it. accessible and easy to use even when it's wet or dark I even use it at home sometimes to light the stove when the electric lighters have let me down. Great product :)
Easy to use long flint for greater spark distance
Different colour options would have been nice
