Like it's smaller brother but more of it. The ExoTac nanoSTRIKER XL has a larger rod and striker handle. It utilizes the same innovative design as the original, but with just enough extra size and heft to improve its ease of use without making it too big or bulky for key chain carry. The striker handle is 46% bigger, making it easier to grip. The XL version also sports a 33% larger ferrocerium rod, which improves the durability and lifespan of the rod even beyond that of the original nanoSTRIKER. Slowly scrape shavings off the rod into a small pile. Use these shavings on top of your tinder bundle for even better sparks! Use the nanoSTRIKER XL to light gas stoves, alcohol stoves, fuel tablets, BBQ grills, etc. Burns at nearly 5500F 3000C. 14 waterproof ferrocerium magnesium rod. Ferrocerium rod works when wet.
