In this video, I show you, review, and demonstrate the Light My Fire 2.0 Army Swedish FireSteel, a compact fire starter. This is an okay fire starter for emergencies, but I would not go to this fire starter as my first choice of tools for fire starting. As mentioned in the video, I had much better luck with a Fresnel lens on a sunny day than with this.
As mentioned, the fire starting demonstration in this video was done in less than ideal conditions. The test was shot a day after a huge rain storm hit California. The air and ground was still pretty humid and wet, and so was the pine needles I used as a fuel source. I did some testing with it off camera several days back when it was dry outside, and the fire steel ignited shredded printer paper and shredded newspaper by themselves in under a minute.
Overall I would recommend you carry this inside your camera bag or bug out bag as a backup fire starter in case your main methods of fire starting (like a lighter) fails to work.
