  1. Its more than just another way to make fire.

    Posted by Todd on Jan 30th 2014

    Firesteel Armageddon is what I am outfitting my field knives with. I confess that much of my experience with bushcraft is learned in my backyard sitting at my fire whittling all sorts of things. Building fires with my fire drill or magnifying glass is most rewarding. But the firesteel is my absolute confidence that I can make fire fast and efficiently when other methods are too slow and risky. Many of us Americans are rugged individualists who find comfort in our independence. Fire is a basic tool we use to live our lives, and making fire without a lighter or match is its own reward. With my Firesteel I don't mutter to myself, "I hope this works." I know it will work because it always does. Ron's blend of metals works every time in a most predictable manner. It is consistent, and I know I can use it to make fire. Armageddon is a robust steel and fits perfectly in the tubes I made on my sheathes. I recommend getting the scraper, too. I can pull the steel off my knife and still have a complete system for fire starting and don't have to rely on my knife to scrape with. I just like the added independence. Thank you Ron for committing yourself to your business and us, your customers who appreciate quality the first time.

    WOW, this thing works great. I used it to start a pile of dead grass on fire. I used a small amount of accelerant on the grass and the Firesteel lit it the first time. I think I'm going to order another one to put in my BOB.

  3. Beefy

    Posted by DKG on Oct 15th 2013

    I purchased this product to be used as my primary firesteel on camping trips. I liked the idea of having a scraper to save my knife from getting dirty and possibly damaged whilst striking the steel(by making contact with the ground). The first thing I noticed after unboxing was how hefty this steel is. The striker is light weight and is a good size and shape. The lanyard included was very nice paracord in a camo color. The firesteel and striker work great. The first test out of the box was to light some dryer lint which was lit on the first spark. Then I used the steel and striker on a weekend camping trip in which it lit every fire throughout the weekend. The tinder was fatwood that had been feather sticked. Product worked as advertised very reliable. The firesteel also appears as it will last through many uses due to the larger size. Recommended.

  4. This is a MUST have!

    Posted by Chris on Oct 11th 2013

    Whether you are a causal camper who needs a tool to start a camp fire or looking for a valuable thing to have in a survival situation, the FireSteel is what you are looking for. After getting it out of the box and going outside and gathering some kindling, two strikes and I had a fire. Great product.

  5. Didn't know what a good ferro rod was before this.

    Posted by Justin on Sep 2nd 2013

    This thing will light material that resisted sparks from my Doan Firestarter. I am impressed. Very effective product. Definitely recommending to friends.

  6. Armageddon Top of the Line

    Posted by Rich on Aug 5th 2013

    This is the best firesteel I have purchased. I had our preteen grand children starting the campfire with both pitch and cotton balls. This is a great size to carry.

  7. A Must For The BugOut Bag

    Posted by Larry Farris on Jul 29th 2013

    Building a fire in the wild is now one less thing to worry about. If you're like me, you'll be putting one in every knife sheath and multitool pouch you own. Even for car camping. Got one hanging on my camp chef stove. Thanx Firesteel.

  8. Amazing Product!!

    Posted by Erik Greer on Jul 16th 2013

    Best deal out there. I have ordered multiple steels from these guys over the last couple years. Every bag I have has one in it, and I won't go anywhere without one. Try the cotton ball trick, you'll never use matches again! I lit my portable grill with one of these steels on independence day this year!!! I'll be buying more in the future.

  9. Wow this thing really works

    Posted by Patrick Morton on Jun 17th 2013

    This thing is so easy to use, throws a ton of sparks. Set dryer lint on fire with ease. No need for a lighter ever again to start a campfire. First scape removes the coating, after that, every scrape throws a huge stream of very hot sparks.

  10. The only way to start a fire

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 3rd 2013

    This is an outstanding product. Once you get the coating off the sparks will fly. Tested the product and started a fire the second time. I got 4. One for each one of my cars and the others for my Bug out Packs. Highly recommend this product.

  11. great product

    Posted by Doug on May 13th 2013

    Very pleased with the Armageddon and Bunker firesteels. Puts out more and hotter sparks.

  12. Great Product

    Posted by Ken on Apr 3rd 2013

    Excellent service and the firesteel is amazing. Used with their scraper it throws sparks 4 feet.

  13. Sparks Fly

    Posted by Ty on Mar 13th 2013

    Items worked as promised. Looking forward to trying them in different settings.

  14. First, but not the last

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 11th 2013

    After scraping off the coating, I took a wad of dryer lint, rolled it into a small ball and it lit on the second strike. Must have!

  15. Excellent Product

    Posted by Eric on Dec 5th 2012

    This was my first purchase at Firesteel.com. The product is exactly as described, and it was delivered quickly. Firesteel.com has a great website, too. It's informative and well-organized. All-in-all, a great purchasing experience.

  16. Good stuff

    Posted by Logan on Oct 31st 2012

    This is my second purchase of this firesteel - gave the other one away to my buddy in the air force.

  17. Amazing

    Posted by Jim on Oct 30th 2012

    I have to say thank you for this amazing product. I don't know how ANYONE couldn't start a fire with this FireSteel. The sparks just fly off the rod.

    I tried it out on a cotton ball with a touch of vaseline and also on some paper that I had run through my shredder. In both cases, I had fire in seconds.

    You cannot find a better firesteel. I'll be ordering again shortly to include this in all my gear packs.

  18. Must have firestarter

    Posted by Joel in Michigan's Upper Peninsula on Sep 28th 2012

    Have had one of these for a while, never failed to start a fire. It worked using birch bark as tinder. Just ordered 4 more, one for each car and one for my pack.

  19. Best I've Ever Used

    Posted by Tighe on Sep 4th 2012

    Received my order in about 2 days. Fast shipping and a great product. I've used it several times already with cotton ball tender and it's built a good fire every time. This size is perfect for my RV. I have a survival size for backpacking and a tube version for my jeep.

  20. Perfect for Alaskan Wilderness

    Posted by Matt on Jul 22nd 2012

    I have camped, hunted and hiked in Alaska for nearly 30 years, experiencing weather as cold as -65 degrees F. I have purchased several other inferior firesteels made by other companies. The Armageddon firesteel is the best on the market.

    With a bit of practice, the Armageddon will start a fire every time. I carry tinder in a small waterproof matchbox to make darn sure that my fire will start, even in pouring rain. The Armageddon is perfect when your life may depend on starting a fire.
