measurement of this new smaller size fire starter buckle:
length - 2"
width at the whistle tip - 1.05"
width not including the whistle tip - 0.85"
The man-made flint piece measures .63" long and 0.156" diameter (it is much smaller than the 3/4" buckle)
Our test whistles measured 95dB. When we covered the hole on the bottom of the whistle, we just got 94dB.
For those of you that have not had a fire starter whistle buckle: The flint has a coating on it so you will need to get that scrapped off before you start seeing the sparks fly. It took me about about 20 scrapes before I saw the sparks fly. My husband had sparks quicker than I did probably because he scraped harder or faster.
The scraper is the metal thing on the underside of the buckle. It can be used as is (attached to the buckle). *When snapping the buckle together, lift slightly on the whistle side so the metal scraper can slide into place.
This buckle is called 1/2" because that is the size of webbing it will accept.
