    My firesteel Armageddon 4.0 is an awesome tool! This will ignite proper tinder every time with just a strike or two. I use it to light my gas grill as well. Being weatherproof and almost endless is piece of mind in the outdoors!

    The formulation of the Firesteel.com ferrocerium rods are the best in my experience. They produce an intense shower of sparks that make fire starting easier even in difficult conditions. Orders are shipped immediately. Great customer service.

    Posted by James on Apr 13th 2013

    I am loving my new fire steel. I have tested it on some of my favorite tinder and it works very well. The firesteel throws sparks like crazy!

    If you can't get a fire going with this then you can't get one going with anything.

    I would recommend this product (and FireSteel.com) to anyone who wants a quality product at a good price fast.
