The FireSteel Armageddon™ Series by FireSteel.com are 3/8 of an inch thick.
This FireSteel is the 3-inch long Armageddon 3.0™ 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 have watched several youtube vids where the folks were using these firesteel rods, and so I ordered the Armageddon 3.0 kit with scraper and magnesium. WOW! I have built a half dozen fires with and without the Mag bar over the past week and I love this thing! Plus the Super Scraper works outstandingly on my other [lesser quality] ferrocerium rods. I will definitly be coming back for more. 5 stars def!!!

From the very first time I ever purchased a product from this website I've been very impressed. Very professional staff and the products delivered are always on point. I'm very happy with the Armageddon 3.0. Keep up the good work guys and thank you again.

This is the brand I trust. I always get spark and plenty of it.
Bad part is I can never keep them! I'm always giving them away to friends and family.
I have to buy a new one every couple of months to replace what i give away! lol

This product is excellent. Very easy to achieve a mega spark. I tried to ignite dryer lint coated in petroleum jelly, and as soon as the spark hit, it was on fire. I really enjoyed the compact packaging and use of instructions as padding;very efficient and functional. I would highly suggest purchasing this product.

I bought these for my family after receiving one last year. What a great product! Take your time finding (or packing) dry tinder and you can't go wrong with this firesteel.

A must have, be prepared

A well thought out simple piece of equipment for anyone venturing to the outdoors.
With all the high tech stuff out there it's good to know that I can rely on something that has been around for ever and will always work if I need it.

I have various types of fire steels. All work but not all work well. This one I purchased from FireSteel.com is by far the best out there. It shoots out large amounts of sparks every time and they catch fast. I am very impressed!

I have used FireSteel.com FireSteel's to light countless fires and it is never not on my person when I am out in the wilderness. The firesteel and super scraper works wonderful and make short work of lighting a fire. I would trust my life with this as my fire starter. Thank you for a great product.

gives phenomenonal sparking to get even the toughest fires started!

It produced the largest and longest burning spark I'd ever seen. I will be purchasing a couple more of these after the holidays. I'll keep them in all my outdoor gear and truck!!!!!!!

Very quick delivery. I'm glad I got the 3" version. After getting the coating off with a couple of strokes, it' creates a great shower of sparks. Able to start a fire with dryer lint/petroleum jelly in a few seconds. I ordered 2 (one for the truck, one for the pack) and am going back for more. Also, I recommend getting the combo on the lanyard-can't beat the price.

Great tool for any Boy Scout!

I was very impressed with the quality of my Firesteel rods, but I had to change the 26" lanyard with an old shoestring because it wouldn't fit over my head so I can wear it around my neck. That way, if I lost everything in the river, I would still be able to start a fire and survive.

We tried the FireSteel product and 1st try were able to start a fire! We are extremely happy with our new product from FireSteel and have recommended it to our friends and family.

This Fire Steel Rod work beautiful on a camping trip and in training at a primitive survival as well as in our Wilderness First Aid class. We have try other types and either they fail in the field or take to much effort to get a spark (SWISS Fire Steel.
I would depend on your company product in a disaster (and have)for lighting any fire, lantern, candle, etc..
We have use got approval for individual of our SAR Team to buy some for their kits.

WOW this damn thing creats nore sparks then any other I've ever used. I was in the USAF survival school. Wish I had one back then

great fire steel the best magnesium i have ever used.
Posted by AJ on Mar 31st 2014
I have used the GobSpark in tandem with the Magnesium. (Many times with this firesteel the Magnesium isn't required.) That being said, this is a great product in a small package. Perfect for hiking, camping, or survival kits.

This was my second order from FireSteel. Easy to use and light for our hiking and camping packs. And, I'm just a girl that can start a fire with a little dryer lint packed in a used toilet paper roll! Mine are still good after 2 years. I bought the new ones for friends.
