The FireSteel Bunker™ Series by FireSteel.com are 1/2 of an inch thick.
This FireSteel is the 4-inch long Bunker 4.0™ FireSteel by FireSteel.com combined with our special Super Scraper, lanyard, and a 3/8 x 3 inch rod made of soft magnesium.
To use the magnesium as tinder, simply scrape a small pile of shavings off the soft magnesium rod. When a spark from the FireSteel hits the magnesium, the magnesium will easily catch on fire and burn at a temperature of 4000 degrees F (2200 °C). This can then be used to ingnite your natural tinder
A big advantage to carrying a piece of magnesium for tinder is that it will not become damp or wet.
Another great combination for starting fires under just about any conditions.

I don't trust the quality in any firesteel if it didn't come from Firesteel.com, PERIOD.

I had never used a fire steel before and was shocked at how easy it was to light tinder, even without magnesium shavings. "Seriously? Beginner's luck!," I thought. Then I lit another pile, and another, and another...Once the black coating is completely scraped off, there WILL be some serious sparks flying. Even a novice (yes, that would be me) can get tinder to light on the first or second strike. I was so impressed that I ordered a "gobspark" for a friend and will probably be ordering more as stocking stuffers. What can I say - the thing works great!

This thing works exceptionally well! Speedy delivery and perfect packaging. I haven't got to use it in the woods yet but I'm having a ball in the fireplace! Thanks Firesteel

was excited to give these a try. Man what a deal. I for sure will not be with out fire ever again. EXCELLENT SET IMO .
AS time moves ahead I will have to add the longer fire steel for future. not that I think will ever need it but just nice feeling to know I would have it . No sense of false security with the FireSteel Bunker Junior with Scraper Lanyard and Magnesium . Service was perfect and delivery came in a very acceptable and timely manner. Merchandise packed well in nice container.
