"This waterproof firestarter is smaller than a pack of gum, but emits a shower of fat, hot sparks. The one-handed operation left my other hand free to secure a windscreen: I just unlocked the spring-loaded strike bar and pushed down on the igniter, which is contained within the shockproof rubberized grip. When I paired it with UST's WetFire, an effective, breath-mint-size tinder ... I started a fire on the first strike, and in three seconds I had a lively little blaze going." – Kelly Bastone, Backpacker.com
“Regardless of which 3 pieces of gear you keep in your bug out bag to start fire, the Sparkie by Ultimate Survival Technologies should be one of them. It has quite a few significant advantages over many other flint and steel fire starters out there on the market today.” – StraightforwardPrepper.com

This is the coolest little gadget. It works great with two fingers and just one hand! I had no problem getting a spark with it. Great tool to have in your bug out bag or pack when out and about or just at home to start up a stove. I'm buying another one!
