I have used some other cheaper firesteels, but this one is by far the best. It arrived very quickly, it works easily and provides a nice shower of sparks. I would definitely recommend this product.

This thing is so good a small child with no prior experience started a fire in a few strike's as a guy who spends countless nights in the woods this thing is worth its weight in gold 2x
Finally a company where you get your money's worth

Immediatly after receiving my Armageddon 4.0, I opened up the package and was pleasently surprised at the actual length. I took the striker and after two scrapes, I had a shower of sparks dancing on my garage floor. I am saving the lint from my dryer (excellent fire starter material) and can't wait to try this out in my backyard. Most impressive, would recommend this product to anyone who even remotely thinks they may need a fire starter. With this product, I am more than confidant I will stay warm and have hot food and hot beverage, whatever my situation may be.

I bought 3 of these as my second order from Firesteel. They throw a lot of long lasting sparks that the previous rods from other vendors have not done nearly as well. I am more than willing to pay a little more to get the best product that I have come across. Their magnesium bars are also the best that I have purchased. These actually scrape well and will burn when ignited.

I have been extremely pleased with this product, and find that I am often carrying it around my neck when I leave the house. When struck with the accompanying steel striker, it consistently produces a brilliant shower of sparks. I would highly recommend this product to a potential buyer, and at the price you've got nothing to loose. :)

I tried starting a fire with 4 different magnifying glasses. Only achieved smoke.
Scraped just a little residue onto dried grass and a cotton ball smeared with Vaseline. Next I struck the firesteel to produce a spark. The grass and cotton ball caught on fire instantly! I felt like Tom Hanks in the movie Castaway! I will be buying more firesteel for my EDC (every day carry) and my BOB (bug out bags). Great product!

This is by far the best firesteel. I live in a tropical climate and it rains quite often here so having something that will light your tinder quickly is kind of a must. Sure it's not snowing like other place but if you wanna sleep all wet and don't have a way to dry yourself up be my guest.
All the time I used this firesteel, sparks/bouncing fiery balls are a guarantee and they are hot enough ignite any tinder most likely on the first to the second strike assuming you know how to do it.
I highly recommend this product. A+++++

I'm not sure how you infused molten lava into these things but you did! I've been using flint & steel for years and love doing that, but was finally intrigued enough to try a ferro rod. Was excited when they arrived and decided to spark it up while in the garage. These things aren't sparks, they're mini gobs of the sun burning with mad intensity! Second pull of the rod & boom, the packed instruction set was in flame. Now how cool is that!
NOTE: Do not try while wife is in close proximate.
Killer job FireSteel.

These fire starters are the best.I bought one after seeing a review on YouTube, took it out and tested it on a camping trip. The people with me were just as impressed as I was. Worked just like I saw on the reviews. I now bought several more to give as gifts. I now keep one in my backpack and one one with my survival knife.

Makes sparks easily (with enough pressure!). Great scraper. My hands are fairly large and both are a good fit. Will be back for the magnesium rod. If you want magnesium just get all three to start. Haven't hiked off the known face of the earth and placed my life in jeopardy if it didn't work but did use it in my "out back" (my back yard!). Worked great with cotton balls/petrolatum fire starters.

Took this along with the larger Gobspark on a trip to Montana last week (mid June '14). It did a bang-up job and got the camp fire started every time. The size is perfect for pocket carry, but still big enough for me to use (XL work glove - sized hands) without any problem. Both this and the GobSpark work as advertised - much easier than a magnesium bar + flint. It was the favorite fire starter among the campers.

I have several sizes and configurations of firesteel.com ferro rods. They are all absolutely tops. Great sparks and easy to use. Many sizes and options to fill all needs.

I like the length of the 4.0 and actually got it for my kids so they have a little more to "hang on to" Throws great sparks too.

This firestarter works as advertised. Makes a hot spark which usually works the first time. You can use whatever is your favorite tender; I find that dryer lint works very well.
One problem though; the paracord loosened up in my pocket and, within a week, my striker was missing. My fault for not checking the knot. Also, the ends of the paracord quickly frayed, becoming too short to be useful. Again, my fault. I should've fused the ends with a match to prevent fraying.
A great product, not cheap Chinese junk. A little more attention to detail would've been nice.

No batteries to fail! You don't have to worry about if it gets wet! You can always get a fire lit. I have several FireSteel Fire Starters on knives, in my truck, bags, and have given some to my sons!
I never worry about 'IF" I'm going to get a fire started!
I would recommend FireSteel to anyone!

This really throws the sparks and will be a great firestarter. I will use it at scout camp.
