You are going to have to steel yourselfI know it's the small unit, so you are not going to get a long graceful stroke, but with the steel it comes with you are going to struggle to get sparks for 50% of the stroke. The quality of hard carbon steel is too low. I hate to sacrifice my good knife edges, but I, like you, will need to steel myself and use my own steel source.
If I purchased again, I would get the larger Flint and steel, then throw away their steel to call it equal on the weight and space used. Use your own knife. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

No quite what i hopedI bought a few of these firesteels hoping to give them to members of my Scout troop who were impressed by my other Light My Fire firesteels. I hoped that they would produce a high quality spark, but maybe for less strikes, but there's just to much spark. You'd be better spending on their other more expensive fire steels, they're exceptional. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
