    I bought 5 of these little things to use with the BSA and will definitely be ordering more. The sparks flow out like a firework making it simple to get the fire started. And they arrived super fast.

    Small but works as well as a large rod. Inexpensive to have available anywhere you can think to store one for that rainy day.

    A must have in your backpack for hiking, fishing, and camping. I have purchased several times for the BSA (Scouts) for their merit badge. Also great storage in a water tight pill bottle with your tender. A great product and price!
