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 received my Armageddon Jr. and had to give a try! After a couple of strikes to remove the coating, the Fire Steel was throwing multiple white hot sparks with each strike. The size is great! Big enough to hold onto easily with my big hands, but not so big it will add much weight in my pack. Dryer lint and lathe shavings fear my Armageddon Jr.!!!

Better than all the others I have tried. Bought for each son, my wife and myself.

This product is far better than the stuff you'll get at a retail or sporting goods store. The magnesium bar scrapes effectively without much effort, and the sparks from the firesteel are like a mini fireworks display. The sparks are so much larger than any other firesteel I've used and so bright you can barely stand to look at them! Much easier to get a fire going with this item than the typical cheapo from coghlans, cabela's, coleman, etc... I'd recommend this product to anyone and advise you to throw the old ones in the trash. Buy this. It won't let you down.

Delivered on time. Took a few strokes to get the coating off but started sending sparks in droves. Coated some dryer lint with Vaseline and fist strike lit it up! Highly recommended as a backup to a Bic lighter. Bics don't work to well wet where as the FireSteel will.

This Fire Steel is simply perfect; great size, the striker is superb, thick popping sparks every time; perfect. A three-fingered monkey could make fire with one of these.

Works exactly the way it is supposed to work. Big sparks each and every time. Will definitely be ordering more in the future.

I have not had a chance to use this product other than a trial test in my office. From what I can tell by that this product should more than do the trick. I also liked the tip that was sent.
I ordered 5 to begin with and will order more as gifts.

I like this so much that in the past I have ordered 5 altogether. I have given 4 as gifts and kept 1 for myself. Not only great product but great website with valuable information and additional products. I love to just browse and maybe find another product to order.

These Firesteels are the easiest to use and produce the best sparks of any similar product I have used. Recommend them to anyone interested in quick fire-starting. My wife was able to light tinder without any instruction, and she's a complete novice in the outdoors!

I love this this thing. I plan to order another one soon.

FireSteel delivered this order very fast. The Armageddon Jr is great and has already proven very useful.

I carry this fire steel everywhere with me, this and my knife never leave my side.

Big sparks, lit cotton ball on 1st try 4 times in row. Fast shipping also, ordered on Thursday and arrived the following Monday.

Once we got the black coating scraped off we had to work a bit on technique for getting really big sparks. You have to hold the scraper at the right angle. But once you get it, it's easy and it makes nice big sparks. I am happy to have it with the magnesium conveniently attached as I will always have a convenient firestarter

Very fast shipping, my 9year old daughter really loves it. I'm crazy about it. itching to order more for upcoming camping. we tried it on dryer lint, cotton balls, no Vaseline at first, then with Vaseline. all work without a problem. Just amazing.. cant wait to get some more... actually I have put some more in the shopping cart..
