I use these fire steels for both my Scout Group and also on my Bushcraft courses. They are dependable and easy to use with minimal help. I tend to show people to use the straight edge burr for striking and use the jagged end for rubbing wood / branches for tinder. I make my own steels for personal use but I always have one of these on my person for a back up.
