Top critical review
Works, but bit harder than expected to use.

For the price its ok and does the job. However, I had the following challenges when used during my spring camping trip.
Very hard to scrap this magnesium block with my gerber blade. Not sure if it was because of the cooler temperature or... that's just the way it is.
Got to dig really hard on the flint, but once you clear the top layer of flint it starts to throw sparks well. Its not huge so you need to be careful when griping it and scraping with a sharp knife. I did successfully start a fire after trying for about 10 min. Looks a lot easier on the videos.
