Does anyone here have any practical experience with the W.S.I. P-60 Hot Spark fire starter? I've been searching for one without any luck, as I've heard many good things about it. Can't seemt o find any place who still sells them. I understand that the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center tested it and liked it enough to buy some to issue in small numbers to those marines who attend the mountain survival school at Pickle Meadow, outside of Bridgeport, California
I know that the P-60 was made for and sold by World Survival Institute, sadly out of business since April of '06 when the owner died. Just wondering how it compares with a standard magnesium/flint block or a Swedish Firesteel?
I have yet to find anything that works as effectively as the standard magnesium and flint blocks. I even have had good results with the Swedish Firesteel by Light-My-Fire. Just wondering if anyone has used the WSI P-60 and how it compares? If it's even worth seeking out? Since it seems impossible to find anywhere.
