    Have used these products for years in all weather, there are NONE BETTER than FIRE STEEL!!!

  2. Great fire starter

    Posted by Kenn on Jul 4th 2013

    These fire steel's are awesome, I've used them several times experimenting with different materials, just to see how well they work and the shower of sparks is amazing. I've had no problems with them, and the service of the FireSteel staff was excellent.

  3. Money Well Spent

    Posted by Kenny on Jun 5th 2013

  5. Great product

    Posted by Christopher M on May 24th 2013

    I am a wilderness survival and outdoor expert, I have used many different fire steels. None of them though can compare to the prices and the quality of firesteel.com fire steels.

  6. the best i've used

    Posted by Mike on May 13th 2013

    Product does what it's suppose to do [Make Fires!]

  7. Great Product!

    Posted by Outlander on May 9th 2013

    Easily throws showers of white-hot sparks and quickly ignites a variety of tinders. I will be a repeat customer.

  8. Excellent

    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.

  9. Lifetime

    Posted by Daniel M. on Apr 5th 2013

    All of the products I have gotten here are very robust and made to last. I would guess I'll have this fire steel the rest of my life.

  10. Fast shipping

    Posted by Lee on Mar 23rd 2013

    Fast shipping fine service the best.
    great product.

    Thanks tons!. 5 Stars for sure

  11. Great Product

    Posted by Eric on Mar 18th 2013

    These make easy work of getting a fire started. I used with charcloth,shaved fatwood, and just plain tender.plenty of large sparks to get anything going. Will be getting plenty of use out of this one but plan on getting the bunker also

  12. Don't waste your money on anything else

    Posted by Mark on Feb 13th 2013

    These firesteels are the real deal! They throw amazing sparks and can catch even the most stubborn materials on fire

  13. Awesome

    Posted by Dave on Feb 4th 2013

    I add antler handles to these and they fit in the fire steel loop on my bushcrafter sheath for my pathfinder knife. Amazing sparks!!

  14. Never Fails

    Posted by Endurunner on Jan 21st 2013

    The Armageddon FireSteel is an exceptional product in that it is compact, portable,and will start a fire under any circumstances. I have had luck starting a fire on the edge of a cliff in 10 degree fahrenheit weather with the Armageddon, when my matches failed.

  15. sparktastic

    Posted by junbug on Dec 14th 2012

    if the shit hit's the fan this is the first item i would reach for, second my scraper and knife.

  16. Great Piece of Hardware

    Posted by Dustin on Dec 6th 2012

    I buy these rods and put antler handles on them. The 3/8" diameter gives the striker plenty of surface contact, which in turn sends a huge shower of sparks with just one strike

    They are absolutely excellent for any hunter's, camper's, or any one else's survival pack. I keep a ranger FireSteel on my key chain, and use my Armageddon FireSteel on extended trips to the woods.

  17. FireSteel Armageddon a perfect name!

    Posted by PRSFX on Sep 17th 2012

    Shortly after recieving this item I went on a 3 night outing to some remote wilderness in northern Oregon. This Firesteel is unbelievable! If you cant start a fire with this....well, dont worry, you cant fail!

  18. Better than all the rest at a great price!

    Posted by Todd N on Jun 27th 2012

    I tested this out as soon as I recieved it. It works great, producing a shower of sparks every time. The FireSteel Armageddon is much beefier and much more reliable than any of the other similar products I have purchased at the outdoor stores.

    I keep one on my knife sheath and one in my fire starting kit in my backpack.

    This is a great product at a great price!

  19. awsome product

    Posted by John on Feb 4th 2012

    I recently purchased a 3/8 by 4 inch fire steel from here. I decided to test it using birch bark wich is a natural good fire starter. After about 6 strikes thats including removing the black coating off the steel it caught fire and stayed burning. Was very happy with the amount of sparks produced and how fast the birch caught fire. Love the product great work.

  20. Extremely Pleased

    Posted by Scott - Lawrence, Kansas on Oct 24th 2011

    I am extremely pleased with your product! I carefully removed the black coating as you advise and was able to start a fire on the FIRST try using clothes dryer lint. I subsequently started several other fires using material from the back yard with no problem. I shall be back later for more of your products.
