Pathfinder Flint and Steel Kit
Nice sized flint and easy to handle steel. Great sparks to start a nice primitive fire.

Easy to use, able to light the lamp wick very quickly. Fits in an Altoid can, bag & all.

Gave this as a gift to my friend, but tested it out first. Steel and flint created a great spark, igniting the charred wick on first attempt. I would rely upon this for fire in a survival situation or for recreational use. The object is to be prepared, and this can provide one more means to survive. This could equal the difference between life and death. This is a definite necessity, in my opinion, in an outdoor kit. I like to have 3, 4, 5 different ways to create fire in a kit. Don't forget the $2 Bic lighter... Feel confident in this old school addition.

I had never used or owned a f&s set before this one. Ferro rods were always my choice. I saw this one on the site and thought that I would give it a try. As soon as it arrived, I took it out and tried it. Being my first time, and with some practice I got the wick to catch spark and lit my tender with ease. I'm proud to say this little gem is in my EDC now. For a person with no experience with one it worked great. I would recommend it.

I was on the fence about getting this one or the more expensive one. I am happy with this F&S although, for those that have not practiced with one yet, it is far harder than a fire steel. I wish the flit was a little bigger but for the money this can't be beat (unless of course you live in a area where flint can be found).

What can you say? It has a nice sized piece of flint and the steel throws an incredible amount of sparks. You will have to light a LOT of fires to wear this thing out.

The striker is what you expect from a extremely basic steel, the flint was garbage and basically unusable. Lamp wick works as expected. Good budget choice as long as you have flint in your area.

Just got this in the mail last week and I have been happy with it so far. I will say that even though I have much experience with building fires, this is my first flint and steel set. At first I wasn't a fan of the "U" design, i don't think it is as attractive as the "C". After using it though, I began to appreciate the fact that if I wanted to, in order to get even wear on the tool, I could strike with either handle. Something that could not happen with a "C" steel. For what you get, it is def the best priced set that I could find. Shipped reasonably fast too. Comes with everything you see in the picture. Would def by from The Pathfinder Store again.
