Durable stainless steel striker.
To get the most effective spark shower, hold the FireSteel firmly in one hand, and the striker with the word "up" facing you . Using a firm, steady stroke, "carve" down at a 45 degree angle the length of the rod. If you're lighting a camp stove, hold the striker steady and pull the rod back towards you.
