Attach the toggle to any outdoor gear and you are good to go.  Heres what I like.  Its a clone of the Nanostiker.  I added a piece of "tinder quick" type cotton.  Its super flammable with just a spark.  I also keep jute in a small hank handy.  The clone nano striker is small enough IMO to keep on a keychain.  Its also not threatening looking.  No-one would know what it was.   
That looks like a nice set up. And as long as it works, thats all that matters!  :like:

Thanks. Its been great in trying out and testing.  I was curious more than anything.  I was also very curious about the FF but after this thread I think I'm over it.  I like a few ways to start fire.  Lighter, ferro rod, storm proof matches.

Ferro Vanadium is produced from Vanadium Sludge & usually available in the range with V: 50-85%. Ferro Vanadium acts as universal toughener, enhancing and rust preventive additive for steels like high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steel, tool steels, as well as other ferrous-based products.

So far, falls out of most of my SAKs but that's ok, only the back edge of the saw blade has enough angle to spark it anyway.
My opinion- great idea, does not work entirely as advertised...

I was in the kickstarter and got a pack of 3 full size strikers. So far they have fit my knifes no problem, haven't had the issues with falling out.

Up until I read this, I would have highly recommended this for a Victorinox SAK enthusiast. They are a little small but can definitely throw enough sparks to start a fire in a survival situation. The metal file is definitely the best tool to strike with, and the wood saw is second best. And you do have to be careful because of the size, but with a little practice it's not bad.

I too actually use the toothpick and wish there was another option on where it can be stored, but I always seem to have a second knife or tool on me.

But for the price I think it's a neat add on for your EDC SAK. Just my opinion, but as a backup plan for having fire, this is a great little product. I would still bring my bigger ferro rod if I knew I was going to starting multiple fires but this will work in a pinch.

On my Executive, the toothpick remains and this device replaced the tweezers.

Oh on the smaller size I guess it could go either place. But on the bigger size I might have to file the end down to make it fit flush as it is shaped perfectly to replace the toothpick.
