The opinion of Aventure Nordique
Doan Magnesium Fire Starter is made in the USA by Doan Machinery and Equipment. It is a firelighter with a rectangular magnesium block and a ferrocerium rod. This set is more reliable, durable than a match or lighter.
By scraping the "shaving edges" with the blade, you will accumulate a pile of magnesium shavings. Simply scrape the "sparking insert" to ignite the shavings to temperatures of 3000°C, hot enough to light even the most stubborn campfire!
Step 1 :
Support edge of tool on ground. Scrape narrow side of tool marked "SHAVING EDGE" with knife blade held perpendicular to tool. Amass small pile of magnesium about the size of a quarter next to tinder. (paper. leaves, small twigs, bark, etc.)
Step 2 :
Support edge of tool on ground within 1" of magnesium shavings at approximately 45° angle. Scrape entire length of side marked "SPARKING INSERT" rapidly with knife held perpendicular to SPARKING INSERT. This action will cause generate sparks, causing the magnesium shavings to ignite, providing a white hot flame. If you don't want to dull your knife, a small hacksaw blade works great!
