The FireSteel.com Micro FireSteel™ is is our smallest FireSteel Rod. The rod is ultra thin - only 3/32 of an inch in diameter, two inches long, and weighs just 0.053 of an ounce. Put another way, there are over 300 Micro FireSteel.com FireSteels in every pound!
Made of the same special high sparking ferrocerium formula used by all of its larger FireSteel.com FireSteel relatives, the Micro FireSteel™ can be utilized to make fires when space is at an absolute premium.
Because it is very thin, extra care is needed when scraping it. A rod of this size may have some interesting applications and so I decided to make a batch!

I was looking for something to put in to a fishing kit. These work amazingly! Throw excellent sparks for size.

I pair this with a DermaSafe "knife" and strike with the blade side. The firesteel is very, very small and hard to hold. It is best to brace it flat against something else, like a chopstick, for example, so you can scrape it hard enough. I can typically ignite a 1/3 piece of tinderquik every other strike (50% of the time) in ideal conditions.
