The Ferro Rod is amazing.
Tried using one of my fixed blade knives and I get a good consistent shower of sparks using that.

This large "Bunker" model fero rod strikes large showers of sparks easily and should outlast me. Got it with the striker and lanyard- and I like the striker, too. The long rod provides a good grip and allows for a long stroke with the striker. The sparks are large, and many of them burn with a sizzle after being struck. I used to use flint and a steel striker and char cloth. Now I'm spoiled. Plan to order some more FireSteel Rods.

I bought two FireSteel Bunkers for me and the hubby's Zombie Preparedness Bags for his birthday, along with a dress shirt and tie for him. I received very polite thank-you's for the shirt and tie. For the FireSteel, I received a high five and kiss. haha. It's an excellent product and works flawlessly. Thanks, FireSteel.

The Bunker Fire Steel 5"×1/2" of fire making steel with an excellent scraper. I have 4 Fire Steels 2 Armageddons, 1GobSpark and the Beastly Bunker all with Strikers. When I received the Armageddons I was sick and wasn't able to leave a review but because of their excellent performance I've ordered the GobSpark and Bunker. I keep one in all of my backpacks so I'm never without and the Bunker is always in my pocket or backpack, it is a massive and absolutely effective tool, because of FireSteel I'm never without the ability to strike a life saving fire. Thank you Ron and Firesteel.

Deserves highest praises I ordered this fire steel Bunker with scraper and lanyard it arrived in just a few days - and the very first chance I had to try it I was camping right in the middle of a winter snow storm with 30 mile an hr. winds and sideways snow. A cotton ball some twine and damp wood 2 strokes off the Bunker and we were in.
Fire was roaring with in minute.

When I ordered the "Bunker" firesteel with the lanyard and scraper, I was hoping it would be worth it. Wow, was I ever pleased! This thing is absolutely awesome! Not only is it a huge firesteel, but the striker kicks the sparks in a way that had me mesmerized. I couldn't believe it, so I just kept striking it and watching the sparks fly across the room. Definitely worth every penny. Also, the shipping was amazingly quick. I found it in my mailbox within 2 days of ordering. Highly recommended. If you're wondering whether or not to buy this product, stop wondering and buy it. You won't be sorry.

Tons and tons of sparks. If this won't get a fire going I'm not sure what spark generating device would. Should last a very long time. Definitely recommended.

We emailed the company with questions and the response was immediate and exact. We placed our 1st order and I believe we received our merchandise within 2 days. Of course, I had to try out the product as quickly as I could open it. The firesteel produced sparks beyond belief to the point that my wife jumped back when she saw how large and how many sparks. The best firesteel on the market, there is no comparison out there. This firesteel will outproduce any other product. I would trust my firesteel more than an unlimited supply of lighters or matches. 6+ stars out of a 5 star rating. No need to look elsewhere.

Ordered two bunkers. Shipping was FAST! The firesteels are light enough to carry anywhere, yet large enough to last MANY years of regular use! Not to mention they SPARK!!

This is the third firesteel I've purchased from Ron and all of his products are the of the absolute highest quality. THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS.
This thing is massive. Shipping is incredibly fast and super affordable. And, if what's ordered doesn't arrive meeting your expectations, Ron goes above and beyond at providing the customer with whatever is necessary to make it perfect. YOU CAN'T BEAT HIS CUSTOMER SERVICE. PERIOD! Customer for life.

A few days ago I received the Bunker Firesteel from Ron, and it is by far the best firesteel I have ever owned. This steel really throws alot of Hot sparks without much effort. I Own of firesteels and the one's i have purchased from Ron at FIRESTEELS.com are by far the best. also they have very fast shipping and are very friendly.

I love this product! There is no comparison between this and all the others I've tried. I lit a fire last night with a cotton ball coated with vaseline with one strike! One strike ignited the ball. It usually takes at least a minute of trying with the others, but this thing threw huge chunks down that lasted a couple of seconds. Thanks for a great product!!

Throws TONS of sparks. From a standing position, it will throw enough sparks that they will 'dance' on the ground briefly at my feet. I may wear it out just playing with it!
Posted by Jason Reeves on Dec 21st 2012
The bunker is large enough to scrape off some serious molten firesteel action! It might be impossible to wear this tool out, FYI.
There is a black protective coating that will require a "pre-scraping" prior to use. The first pass (after the black oxide was removed) produced huge showers of heavy molten sparks. You can actually hear the faint "thud" as they hit the ground!
The wad of paper that my firesteel was shipped with was instantly aflame on the first pass.
This is definitely the one you're looking for...

The Fire Steel is excellent.

My FireSteel came and I tried it out tonight on a cotton ball soaked in PJ. ( I learned that from your video)
Third strike the cotton ball lite right up. First two strikes I was getting my aim down I guess. Worked like it should.
I have no doubt the ONLY reason I'll need more of these is for the rest of the families packs.
I doubt I'll ever where this thing out.

The bunker size steel is great. It seems larger than the ones we at SpecOps got from you back when we were first deployed. I have been training intel officers after my 4 tours to Iraq and 3 to the Afghan Hills.
I am using the fire steels in both the field ops and SERE parts of the intel training. I like the new scraper over the last large version. Those large blocks of magnesium were slowly whittled down over the years as were the old large fire sticks.
We did have one pilot stand on a mountain scraping his fire steel as a signal. The PJs saw it 2 miles away. We even ignited time fuze with one to set off an IED.

I received the firesteel quickly, and the firestarter preformed very well. I would recommend this fire starer to anyone who likes to go camping, and its perfect to have in your bugout bag.

Right out of the box I had this throwing gigantic sparks. If you can't get sparks from this monster there is no hope for you.
PS - get the special FireSteel.com "Super FireSteel Scraper" for more sparks than you can shake a stick at.

Firesteels from this company are the best ways to light my fire. Why? It is very simple: matches get wet, lighters run out of fuel or break.
This Bunker firesteel will start thousands of fires before wearing out. That's IF you could EVER wear it out! The firesteel still makes sparks after being dunked in water.
And using a firesteel is easy. Just scrape the firesteel with your knife blade or use the Super Firesteel Scraper Firesteel.com provides. You will get big giant sparks very easily.
If you want to survive, get this firesteel!
