CR9081: 9081 Spark'N Sharp Firestarter


Because sometimes the SHTF and you gotta' make do.

Anyone who's made a fire with a magnesium fire starter rod knows it's no picnic. And anyone who sharpens knives knows a tungsten carbide blade sharpener isn't the first choice to get your edge back. But when you're stuck in the woods in a snowstorm and the stakes are high, the rule book is your first source of tinder.

The Spark'N Sharp designed by Tom Stokes features a sliding plate that moves to expose either the sharpener or the steel striker. The fire steel snaps in place to form a streamlined bundle that stores easily in any pocket, bug out bag, go bag or survival kit. All parts of the fire starter are connected to a lanyard, so you never have to worry about losing pieces of your tool. The tungsten carbide knife sharpener will keep your blade honed to a working edge and the magnesium rod fire starter will produce sparks until your troubles go up in a cloud of smoke.

The Spark'N Sharp is lightweight, versatile and it could save your life in a pinch.

Pros: Overall Quality, Ease of Use
Cons: None
Purchased this a few months ago because i thought it was a pretty cool little tool, ( I admit i am a total gadget nerd ) Turns out, this is one of the best purchases i have ever made. I have sharpened dozens of knives, mine as well as friends and coworkers. it takes up very little space on my edc keychain.The ferro rod is a bit small but it works great too. Have purchased a couple as gifts for friends. This is a great little tool.Do yourself a favor and get one.

Highly reccomend, a little weird to carry for edc..
Before buying this I ad a swedish firesteel on my keychain that ended up snapping in half during a fall. This has since replaced it since the firesteel itself is encased by polymer when the tool is closed. There is a carbide sharpener which slides out that could work in a pinch or to reprofile an edge on a knife, good for removing material... The firesteel itself seems to be of good quality (beats gerber or the magnesium cheapo ones) and behaves a lot like my swedish ones for wear and spark density. One thing to say for this tool is it may be a bit bulky for keys but of course you could use just the fire steel. Overall I like this thing and will buy more.
