- Yes, but not the striker. I have a broken carbon steel hack saw blade attached to mine, but a carbon steel knife blade works, too.by Jfeatherjohn5/27/2015Was this answer helpful? (3) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Yes. I reccomend using a file instead of a knife as it creates a lot more sparks that way.by hess835/27/2015Was this answer helpful? (3) (0)Was this answer helpful?

- Depends on how much you use it. If you make 1 fire with it to keep you warm I feel it has paid for itself.by VivaLaWally5/27/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It will start a couple of dozen fires, easy. It does depend on conditions and how much powder you need to get your fire going. I only use these when everything's wet, so my last one lasted about 15 years.by Jfeatherjohn5/27/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
