I got this from my Dad a few years ago. It's a flint and magnesium fire starter. This little guy can work even when wet. At night it can work as an emergency signal. Another great item for the bug out bag Check it out at http://www.Montanaantlercraft.com

That is the first time I have ever seen a magnesium fire starter like that. It has the COOL facto built in.

I have one, but its made in china and came from china-mart. I dulled the hell out of my knife when I first got it because I used the sharp side to get the mag off the bar instead of using something else to shave it. lesson learned though.

Yeah that's why I think everybody should have a fixed blade knife that isn't sharpened on both sides, that way you can use the back edge to shave off the magnesium and spark. Or just tie a mag stick to a piece of steel with paracord.
