How are the Ti Stakes?
Super lightweight, robust, minimal pack real estate. Anyone can bushcraft stakes, I'd just rather save the time and calories. Of course, in terms of opportunity costs, I only have them because of an old REI dividend.
Cool, so they stack well, and dont weigh much. Right on. I am forever thinking about kit weight. We used to have an REI when I lived up north, but it went outta business. Damn nice place though.

Sorry to wake a sleeping thread, but the design of this sparked really needs a small mod. it needs a pin size hole through the top where the flint protrudes. this would allow loading the flint and pushing in a little further with the tip of a knife or similar and put a pin through the new hole and then the spark wheel can be installed without any spring tension. once installed, pull the pin and, tada, ready to go.

Too many moving parts. I don't trust it.
