Product Description

The Friendly Swede® Magnesium Alloy Fire Starters [3 PACK]

The Friendly Swede's Magnesium Alloy Firestarters are an essential piece of any survival/outdoor kit - waterproof, durable and easy to use. Never leave home without one!

CONTENTS
Three 3" x 1" Solid Magnesium Alloy and Flint Blocks

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Using the flat edge of the striker, shave the block to create a small pile of magnesium alloy.
2. Prepare your tinder next to the magnesium alloy pile.
3. Hold the flat edge of the striker against the top of the flint at a 45° angle. Slide firmly down the flint to create sparks. Allow sparks to fall onto magnesium alloy pile.
4. Use magnesium alloy to ignite tinder. Place burning tinder into fire. Don't suffocate the fire - build fire slowly using small pieces of wood.

Colour Name: Magnesium Fire Starters - Older Version Verified Purchase
Length: 1:29 Mins
Good quality and reasonable block of magnesium and three for £8.99 (UK buyer) is a good buy (when I purchased them- more expensive now but still good value, slightly different striker design), so why only 4 stars-
The manufacturers advice on their use states " To make a fire, firstly you need to shave a small quantity of magnesium with the serrated end of the striker and make a pile of it. The pile needs to be about the size of a two pound coin. Keep your tinder (dry grass, leaves, paper, bark) close to the pile of magnesium. Secondly, you need to strike the flint with the striker and let the sparks fall into the pile of magnesium to start your fire. Lastly, ignite your tinder and add small pieces of firewood to keep the fire going. Remember to keep a close eye on your fire and never leave it unattended."

Firstly if you try to use the serrated blade (on the striker) supplied you will probably be their all day and night and have red knuckles. The serrated edge on the striker is so fine that the shavings are to small, difficult to keep together and will be blown away in the wind. In addition it is a little annoying that you have a relatively thick layer of black paint to get through first on the magnesium block and striker.

I have given the product 4 stars - as if you have a camping knife with a part serrated edge which every serious outdoor person should have in there kit anyway) then producing a pile of shavings to the size of a £2.00 coin is not an issue.

Colour Name: Magnesium Fire Starters - Older Version
Length: 0:11 Mins
----------------------------------------------
***DISCLOSURE***
I was kindly provided this item free of charge to test and evaluate. In exchange, I agreed to provide an honest review detailing my thoughts. This is said review.
----------------------------------------------

===== WHAT'S IN THE BOX? =====
3x flint/magnesium blocks
3x saw/strikers
3x metal chains

===== INITAL IMPRESSIONS =====
Straight out of the box the items are well packaged and come with clear instructions on how to use effectively. They all would appear to be of a high quality, something I am coming to expect from 'The Friendly Swede'.

===== METHOD =====
Simply use the saw to scrape away at the magnesium block and create a small pile of fillings. This will need to be somewhere relatively covered, as they are very susceptible to the wind.
You should already have the rest of your fire starting kit to hand, i.e. tinder, wood etc.
Use the back of the saw, the striker; and push this rapidly against the back of the magnesium block, the flint.
This will create sparks. Make sure said sparks fall on your pile of magnesium fillings and you're sorted. Fire!
Chuck in the tinder and build slowly. Simples.

===== PRODUCT IN USE =====
To create the pile shown in the video I've attached, it took around a minute or so of scraping away at the magnesium block with the supplied saw. Obviously to create a larger pile, or to get results quicker, then you could always use a more substantial saw/serrated blade; but for normal fires, the supplied saw fits the bill just fine.
Using the striker against the flint to create sparks was ridiculously easy and also rather fun!

Colour Name: Magnesium Fire Starters - Older Version Verified Purchase
Just got these & they are really good, hold the striker & saw sharp side flat against the magnesium & shave up & down to get a good mix of particle sizes, this makes it easier to light & burns really hot... me & my girlfriend have these with our tins of home made char cloth from old denim, brilliant combination that can't fail to start a fire... & we are considering buying more so we have a couple in each of our emergency packs as fire is essential in an emergency to survive (unless the emergency is a fire, then these won't help lol), & 1 for each of our knives (WARNING, do NOT strike these with your knife, it WILL ruin the heat temper making it easy for the metal of your knife to crack, it is a VERY high temperature spark)!!! ..... only just found this company online & am impressed so far, we shall be having a look at the other products they have that we may need in an emergency/survival situation, if we prepare for anything we will be calm, comfortable, & ready if something does happen :)

Colour Name: Magnesium Fire Starters - Older Version
Wow even I can now start a fire!

These are just so useful if out camping or even having a barbecue and needing to light a fire. We are a non smoking household so either the candle lighter gets lost. (Other half tends to have a habit of leaving it in his coat pocket, never to be found). Or looking for soggy matches again left in his pocket.

This is a safe item to carry about in your pocket or bag, no fear of accidentally lighting it. But I must warn you that it needs not to left near children, as they find it quite fun and start to mess. They wonder what it is, then when told, well like most kids they want to try it out.

I did get it to light but only after a few goes, but thinking it better that way at least I can feel safer knowing that it will not strike a light straight away.

The chain on it is a good idea, easy to misplace if not, but then again with there being three in a packet we should not have any worries about fire starting. Really is good for picnics, parties and just in case you get stuck out in the back of no where without heat, at least you will be able to start a fire.

They look well made and come with a lifetime guarantee, fast delivery and packed really well. So glad to have been sent these to review.
