I actually have one of these. Overall it's a good tool, but there are a couple things to note:

1) The key ring doesn't go through, so it's more like a strip of metal that snaps into tiny holes. I've almost lost mine multiple times because that ring will bend and doesn't like to stay in the slots after a while. Just something to beware of when having it dangling on a key chain.

2) The ferro rod is really tiny and if you apply enough downward force while trying to use it, it will snap off. It's been so long since I did that, I can't remember if it was replaceable or not. It's still usable if it snaps, you just miss out on the extra grip area it was attached to.

Like I said, overall it's a really good tool, especially as a small "just in case" item.
