This is the first one ive owned, and I was a bit confused as to how to use it at first: and came to these reviews to find out since it doesnt have instructions.

Incase youre in a similar position:
You hold the key shaped black/silver part with the black section facing upwards.
Strike it with the FLAT side of the saw-like part.
It wont do anything until the black surface of the key part is scratched off and the silver part beneath is revealed.

Starting a fire with it is a whole different story.. I cant even light a piece of tissue yet! (all due to my poor skills- as the product does make a spark as well as any ive seen in videos)

Once thing I would perhaps go for if I buy another; is to get one with a more comfortable handle on the key-like part. because its so small, and you have to grip it quite firmly when striking, making it quite uncomfortable. Other more expensive ones seem to have a bigger area to hold on to. (this is not an issue if you can light your fire first time...)

Easy to use, and effective. Using the right tinder is, as always, essential to use this tool to it's full potential and with a good tinder it's perfect. On 10 test uses I done it lit within 4 strikes everytime.
The striker also doubles as a saw in an emergency as it has teeth on it and can be used as such.
Remember, strike with the smooth diagonal edge of the striker, not the teeth.

this flint and steel is capable of making a very strong spark if you know what you are doing but it can be a bit difficult to produce a strong spark without practice

10/10 it works. No fancy stuff here just straight foreward tool. If you find it a bit short to hold on to use or add an extension piece. "Magic".

A small packet from Guangzhou China.
I tried it and got a spark straight away. The top part seems easier to get a spark when you strike it. One side acts as a saw which will come in handy when sawing wood.
