I have purchased ferro rods from other companies and thought they were good and spot on when it came to creating sparks to light different tinder material. Boy was I WRONG!!! The sparks that these produce are far more superior than any other that I have purchased in the past.
Thanks for such a great product!!!!

You can't beat perfection and that is exactly what my new firesteel is . . . Perfection! I highly recommend it to anyone looking to create a consistent fire-making shower of sparks.

Bought this steel along with the 3/8 x 5 magnesium rod for my Maxpedition Fatty EDC. They're a perfect fit for the pen/pencil slot bands. I have a bag of 30 zip-ties in the band behind them, making for a snug fit with zero slippage. Big advantage to the 6 inch length is you can get a solid grip without needing to make a handle; I have other steels that are half inch diameter, but much shorter, meaning I need to add a handle to get the leverage I need for a good spark.
I look at it this way: for under $20, I have a steel and a magnesium rod that are built just the way they need to be built for an EDC. That's a "can't miss", and it allows you to double down on your fire-starting with a MagSlab while still being under $25.

I already heard good things about the company and product. My delivery was on time. As soon as I received them I was trying them out. A very good size and design. They shower sparks for the length of th rods I mean they SHOWER SPARKS. I'm extremely pleased with product and admire your company along with your efforts as company too recycle. You have a life long customer.my referrals will last as long as these giant ferrous rods. Thank you.

If you own or intend to own a quality knife, they nearly all come with 3/8 firesteel loops. Bottom line: THIS is the firesteel you want to pair with your bushcraft/survival blade if you never want to spend a cold night out there.

Gave these out as gifts. They were well received. So excited to try out, that we started a fire in the chiminea . Wet and damp and lit right up. Great products that shower sparks!

Throws a ton of sparks. I plan on using the base off some old antlers I have for grips. The shipping was wonderful, literally 3 hours after I placed my order I received an email stating my rods had been processed and were labeled shipped (I ordered these on a Sunday). Would recommend FireSteel.com to anyone and I will be a return customer.

The extra length for gripping is awesome. Works great and has a great value.

I ordered 2 of the 3/8X6 Armageddon Steels. For me, the extra length allows for a longer / larger homemade 3 inch handle and 3 inches of shaft for sparking. Something to consider if your hands are "more mature" like mine.
Firesteel rods surpass "Swedish / Euro" steels in my opinion because they seem to have a higher Magnesium content (the shower of sparks lasts longer)...they are slightly softer in my opinion which makes them easier to spark...and...produce more sparks.
With practice one can also learn to "shave" filings into ones tinder bundle prior to ignition with by sparking.
These are the best...don't waste your time with other stuff.
