Magnesium Flint for $1.49 steal! on 07/28/2010 08:16:12 MDT Print View offers this Wilderness Survival Flint Striker for $3.19. Coupon code "MLCK600702072853NL1" cuts it to $1.49. Coupon expires after 1,000 uses.

Flint is from china so it takes 2 weeks to ship, but should be fine. ive ordered stuff from meritline before. will let you know how brittle it is for 1.49, but at that price, it justifies its price in magnesium shavings alone...

Thanks for the tip! I picked up a couple of flints, a cheap LED light, and a very cheap remote that may or may not work with my camera. =)

yea, I've ordered lots from meritline, only ever had one issue which they resolved quickly and easily, no complaints whatsoever.

I have an older version of their "tent" light, two actually, they're great for car camping and the one I have has a "disco" mode which is always fun =D
