Emberlit flint and steel striker review Emberlit makes some very cool looking striker designs. So when the wife was placing an order on Amazon I had her order one for me. It came with a large piece of "flint". I got a few sparks off the supplied flint but even more rock chips. So I got out a piece of petrified wood that I have used with good results on my other strikers. I dare say the results were disappointing. Where I would normally get up to a 1/2 dozen or more good sparks from a file striker or one made from our BCUSA vendors the Emberlit only produced 3 at the very most and on some strikes zero sparks. Those sparks that it did produce were short lived. It will work, just not very good. At $18+ I would recommend you stay away from them unless you just want a meager striker that looks cool. Or who knows maybe I got a lemon. I will contact the vendor and if I receive any feedback I will update here.
