BSA HotSpark-
I have several and for the price they are great. Any downside to them at all? I can't seem to find any.

I love them, the price is right, they are a great size, they throw a good amount of sparks, and they have the BSA logo on them. What is not to love? <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> As to problems with them, they arn't as big as the Swedish firesteels so they wont last as long, but you can buy 5 of them for the price of the larger swedish firesteel model.

Nowhere to my knowledge. You can find them at scoutstuff.org(or .com, can't remember which) but it'll just direct you to the local scout supplier.

Maybe on eBay?
