Magnesium lighter has one significant advantage over the traditional matches or lighters - it doesn't mind moisture. To make matters easier, you can use any knife to scrape off the magnesium shavings.

The Doan Magnesium Lighter is supplied to the US armed Forces and in our opinion it is the best classic magnesium lighter on the market. It is lightweight, the magnesium scrapes well, and lighting a fire is fast and reliable.

He's a helper.
  • Again a very practical helper, no need for the trumpet and similar matters. Scratch, suitably supplement with flammable fine materials, cross out and that's it.
  • Great thing, but with other products of this type, it is common for the product to already include a "scraper / cutter" in the form of a single-sided toothed plate. No need to hunt a knife or other object to scratch and throw a spark

Works great in combination with cotton wool. It can be very difficult to burn something heavier than cotton wool (for example, dry grass). The product itself is great.
