  1. I Felt Like Zeus

    Posted by Jake P. on Apr 24th 2018

    I have plenty of ferro rods, still do, and all work to some extent, even the cheap chinese made ones. I expected a lot more from this company, and boy did i get it! It came fast and easy, and very reasonably price, I'd even say inexpensive. After scraping off the coating, and then using the included scraper, also a MUST buy, i was throwing sparks across my driveway, lighting the night. Some even burned so long and hot that they hit the ground after a 4 foot drop and continued to burn. This steel is like no other. I have had made damp feather sticks ignite like seasoned fat wood shavings. I'm definitely buying again. Beyond impressed, and dollar to fires started, this is going to end up being a small percentage of a penny for each fire lit. Don't buy cheap chinese ferro rods anymore, or expensive Swedish ones, buy an inexpensive, American made product that will pretty much guarantees you a fire every time if your skills are up to it.

  6. Armageddon+Super Scraper is a winner!

    Posted by Kyle Davies on Oct 8th 2017

    I recently purchased an Armageddon firesteel (5" long) and after a quick test at home I used it over a long weekend up in the BWCAW. Even after scrapping the black coating off I was unable to get acceptable performance out of it. I scrapped so much that I rounded off one side of the spine of my inexpensive bushcraft knife (from a European origin) without being able to get enough spark to start a fire. This was a serious let down because my goal was to not use a lighter all weekend with my new wood burning cooking stove.

    I emailed firesteel.com promptly when I got home and asked them for a return of my firesteel, but after reading about my experience, Ron had a hunch the steel in my knife was not hard enough. He quickly and graciously sent me a Super Scraper for me to try. As soon as I got the Super Scraper I easily got sparks as advertised.

    The Armageddon with the Super Scraper is a winning combo. Thanks firesteel.com.

  7. Great fire steel.

    Posted by TD on Jan 29th 2017

    Awesome piece of kit. Throws excellent sparks!!! Highly recommended.

  8. No other.

    Posted by Harry on Oct 30th 2016

    I will only buy FireSteel Ferro rods. I have purchased the 5X3/8 as well as the 5X1/2. You just will not find any better as far as throwing sparks.
    I have purchased the other competitors and found that they just ain't up to what FS brings. Also, their service is excellent and I receive the product quickly. Great folks to deal with.

  9. Reliable as hell!

    Posted by Todd Elliott on Oct 10th 2016

    All the fire steels from firesteel.com are the best on the market bar none.

  10. great product and awesome service

    Posted by DaveJr on Apr 13th 2014

    I never do reviews on things I buy online. I was so impressed with the service that I recieved that I thought I had to say something. I ordered the Armageddon 5.0 on a Sunday morning and just a few hours later I got an email saying my order was shipped. I have never had an online order get sent out so fast and on a Sunday on top of that. As far as the product, it is as advertised. The extra length means I don't have to install a bulky handle and the sparks of this thing are awesome.
