    Not ready to leave my Mag stick behind.

      Comments about Ultimate Survival Technologies Sparkie Fire Starter:

      First look and thoughts of this "Fire Stick". The one handed operation is a plus however that is about it. If you were igniting a flammable fire helper perhaps it would fit the bill. I will give it more of a chance in the field but it will not replace my tried and true Mag stick or bow drill, for that matter.

        Comments about Ultimate Survival Technologies Sparkie Fire Starter:

        Ive tried many sparkers, this is the best I have found to date. The BIG and hot spark is excellent The one handed use is critical in my view as the spark is easily controlled at the same time the tinder is so there is excellent placement of the spark. I now carry it and provide it to crew folks as an excellent,tuff, handy, reliable backup to put in their emergency kits.

            One handed use is a good concept for a back up.

                  Comments about Ultimate Survival Technologies Sparkie Fire Starter:

                  So I never got to use this to start a fire however I tested when I received in a shoe box and it managed to create burn spots inside it with about 5 or 6 pushes. I'm confident this could start a fire under dire restrictions. I unfortunately lost it while at camp and ultimately is a no brainer to use a lighter, especially at dusk.
