THIS IS THE TUNGSTEN BLADED, MAGNESIUM VERSION, NOT THE PLAIN 440C ONE!!
This version has added magnesium to increase spark temperatures and also has a much more durable tungsten colbalt blade. When you stike these fires steels blade edge retention is important as you have to 'bite' the firesteel to get the best out of it. We tested both and the tungsten version is much the best and does not need replacing as the 440c version does.
