The Boker Plus Magnesium Fire Starter is an indispensable tool for emergency situations. It includes a scraper and a magnesium fire rod for starting camp fires and emergency flares. The rod stores inside a threaded aluminum body featuring sturdy construction and an integral compass. A ball neck chain is included with the fire starter for convenient carry. The Boker Plus fire Starter is an essential item for any outdoor survival kit.
We do a descent amount of camping and wanted to have a magnesium starter for back up. This one is very cleverly designed! I didn’t even realize it had a built in compass when I bought it. Only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is that I have not had opportunity to use it yet and test its functionality. As far as it is in and of itself (not being tested yet) its 5 of 5 stars. Will update after getting to test it.
