  1. I’ve been a guide in the Boundary waters canoe area for years and always show clients how to use a magnesium fire starter always without a problem. I must be buying the correct starter. If I was in a serious situation in the wilderness and had one of these cheap ones I would be outraged because your life could be at stake. always buy the top of the line equipment and this is a great example why!
