I think this premium pen-sized fire starter from Survivor X is a great concept. It's small and compact so it's perfect for keeping on your keychain or in your purse. It comes in handy in an emergency situation or to use when you are camping or hiking.
While it's great that it's compact and small, it does provide a challenge to those with bigger hands. Jerry did the review video for me on YouTube this time and found it difficult to handle having larger fingers. As you will see demonstrated in the video at the end of my post. Also there is only one very small piece of cotton included with it, so if you don't get it right on one shot you will need back up pieces of cotton or other material that will easily catch a spark and keep it going. It is reasonably priced.
To use the tool after you unscrew it, scrape off the protective coating, remove the cotton under cap and then strike until you create sparks with swift strokes. Takes a couple tries, but it does work. Nice product, wonderful to have on hand if you enjoy camping a lot or traveling different places and may have use for it.
