I ordered 3 of these as well as a Magnessium rod and I just received them today. Not only did I get exactly what I ordered but I received a handwritten note from someone named Ron. He threw in an extra beefeier rod as well as a striker for free. I will absolutely be purchasing from you guys again. Oh btw..the rod puts out a massive amount of sparks.

I BOUGHT THESE TO ADD TO MY (BOB) BUSHCRAFT KNIFE AND MY USB (URBAN SURVIVAL BAG). I HAVE FOUND FIRE STEEL.COM STEELS ARE THE BEST AND THE BEST DEAL ALL AROUND.

NEEDED A GOOD FERRO ROD AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE. THE FIRESTEEL ARMAGEDDON IS AN AWESOME DEAL. JUST RECEIVED A COUPLE OF THESE IN THE MAIL AND DON'T THINK I WILL HAVE TO BUY ANY MORE OTHER THAN FOR A FRIEND.
YOU SHOULD CALL IT THE FLAME THROWER...LOL....THANKS FOR A QUALITY PRODUCT.

This firesteel is lightweight, works perfectly, and was shipped immediately. What more could you ask for? Thanks so much, looking forward to buying more in the future!

I can't conceive of a situation where I would use this thing up. In a primitive society it would be passed down through generations and worshiped.

This size firesteel is perfect! It feels substantial and trustworthy for any situation.

As a full time bushcraft knifemaker, I often get requests for a firesteel matching the handle material of the knife. These are what I use now, and they're quite ideal to go on the side of a sheath in a firesteel loop. It is also a good size for a necklace. And of course the 3/8" diameter allows for longevity & large sparks which rarely fail to ignite your tinder in the first flash.

I bought 10 of these for the great quantity price which will last a lifetime. These will give you the most sparks in the smallest size Firesteel. They fit fine in Altoids tins and give great sparks with Firesteels super scraper tool or even a piece of an old hacksaw blade. These will always work and you don't have to worry about them having a "shelf life". Keep one along with some cotton balls soaked in petroleum jelly and you will never have to worry about making a fire any time you need one. Keep one in every vehicle. Having a career in quality control, I tested and compared these against several others. Firesteel.com firesteels are clearly the best.
