Yeah, these things blow. Spend twenty minutes scraping a small pile of shavings then watch a little wind carry it off so you can start dulling your knife all over as you freeze. Get a SolKoa firestarter kit and you'll get a fire going in wind and rain.

Response to WinterCampers: the magnesium block is not nearly as flammable until it is shaved into small filings. That's why they don't recommend pre-shaving it and carrying around the filings. It's not the most elegant way to start a fire, it really is just designed for emergency use, and as we mention plan on losing the edge on your blade while doing it.

Our experience is greatly different. Read it at
