  1. Very good, but messy!

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 26th 2018

    The firesteel arrived in about three business days after the order, which is a very acceptable turn around time. I like that there were suggestions on how to use it and get the most out of it. There was an explanation as to the packaging and why minimal packaging was important to the company. Then, I grabbed the firesteel in my hand and realized there was a coating of sorts on it, as my hand turned black. I am not sure why the coating is on it...anti corrosion? The coating has to be scraped off for the firesteel to be effective. That is my only complaint. Getting the coating off is a process and messy at that as your hand will turn a tacky black. I suppose if you do it with a glove on, it would be nearly impossible to get the coating off the glove and everything you touch from that point on would have a oily black imprint. Other than that, once you can get to the silver part of the steel and strike it, the sparks are intense and bright. I lit the instructions on fire with no problem. I love it...just wish the coating wasn't necessary.

  2. Highly recommended.

    This is the second product I've purchased from Firesteel.com and I'm happy as ever with both the products and the surprisingly fast shipping. I would recommend Firesteel.com to any one, they obviously care about their customers. Al C

  5. Happy fire maker

    Posted by paul lewis on Apr 14th 2016

    The people at fire steel are a bunch of geniuses.. Saving them and the customer a lot of money on packaging as they use the instructions and packing slip. That's the way to go green. The website is easy too manage and the shipping was very fast. Ok with that out of the way on to the product. These fire steels throw sparks like none other. I was showing a customer how well they work and burnt splatter marks in our display case glass. They are hard I expect them to last a very long time but not so hard that it's impossible to get good spark. Anyway I love them and would recommend too anybody that wants to start a fire.

  6. Showers of sparks

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 14th 2016

    This steel is awesome, emit a tons of sparks that ignites the toughest tinder. A must have!!!!

  7. High quality firesteel

    Posted by Lenni on Jun 18th 2015

    The fire steel came quickly in the mail and was of very good quality. It creates powerful hot sparks when scraping it. Definitely would buy it again.

  8. Armageddon 5.0

    Posted by Dallas on Feb 19th 2015

    Was shipped fast and arrived in a reasonable amount of time considering that I live in the great white north. The 5.0 is fantastic, the coating is not to hard to get off and sparks of plenty soon there after. I'm also impressed with the sparks themselves, well formulated with not a lot of excess material being wasted. Three fire's in and all three started first time, I have no idea how long this will last but the claim of thousands of fire's would be a good guess. I also appreciate the packaging it's refreshing. I'll be ordering again.

  9. 3/8x5" firesteel

    Posted by Jim on Nov 23rd 2014

    Nice firesteel, long enough to use, short enough to carry. I ordered this one after losing my 1/2 one which was heavy to carry. Thanks for the quick shipping, and a good value for the money product.

  10. Great Product!

    Posted by Erik on Nov 7th 2014

    I purchased these to make gifts for a few people. They look great. Just have to finish some custom handles for them. They are beefy and should last a long while. Not to mention the gobs of sparks they throw. Thank you
