  1. Softer than in the past

    Posted by Woodland Guru on Dec 6th 2017

    I have purchased in the past and loved the products. This time, the alloy seems a little "softer" than in the past. As a result, the material scrapes off in larger shreds, and can even stick to the scraper and go in strange directions. If it hits the tinder, the shred glows longer and is effective, but getting fewer but larger big sparks to hit the tinder is more challenging. I tested with a super scraper, palm scraper, carbide sharpener and knife spine; comparing my old Armageddon GobSpark to the new Armageddon Blank rod with a homemade handle. There is a difference, and I think I like the old alloy better. The new one also does not spark as frequently. This means I can scrape more material into the tinder before lighting, but it tends to use more material and I don't always get a spark when I want it. So this is still a good product, but I pay a premium compared to the 'cheap stuff' and expect perfection, and was a little disappointed, so only 4 stars.

  2. First timer... no problem!

    Posted by Chris R Masello on Oct 14th 2017

    I’ve been bushcrafting for a little while now but I have never really thought to pick up a fire rod until now. I looked on Amazon for hours until one of my brothers swore by FireSteel.com.
    And let me tell you this tool Delivers As Promised!
    After a couple of fine shavings of wood, some larger twigs gathered, and some finally shredded birch bark, I was ready to give it a go...
    The same brother who suggested FireSteel.com looked at me and said, "You’re not going to get that started with this wind."
    But being as determined as I was, I wanted to try anyways. I pulled the striker on my multi tool out and stroke the rod two times towards my tinder and poof, FIRE!

    Posted by Jody O on May 28th 2015

    Wanted to build some firestarters with antler handles. Purchased two of these and they proved to be perfect. Not only was the product top of the line, the speed with which my order was processed and shipped was nothing short of amazing. On my desk less than 48 hours after placing the order. No additional shipping charge for the efficient service. Thanks for a great e-commerce experience.

    Posted by Stellan on Apr 26th 2015

    It strikes good sparks that burn for a moment, enough to light dry grass if you can't find seed fluff.

    I've tried them all, and nothing compares to the FireSteel.com brand.

  14. Excellent fire starting tool!

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 8th 2014

    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!

  15. GREAT Firestarter rod

    Posted by Unknown on May 26th 2014

    I have used firesteels before from other brands, and they do not measure up to this one. It throws a ton of sparks that burn hot and long.

    Posted by Jason Alexander on Nov 11th 2013

    This product is the perfect size for my fire kit and throws sparks in molten curtains on my tinder. I have not failed to start a fire with the right tinder and one of these firesteel.com firesteels. This Armageddon is an excellent product!

  18. Like the tail of a comet

    Posted by M. Lovett on Oct 3rd 2013

    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.
