  1. Get a dozen and don't think about it ...

    Posted by Steve on Aug 31st 2013

    Small but works as well as a large rod. Inexpensive to have available anywhere you can think to store one for that rainy day.

  2. Small but what a spark !

    Posted by Gene McCallister on Aug 30th 2013

    A must have in your backpack for hiking, fishing, and camping. I have purchased several times for the BSA (Scouts) for their merit badge. Also great storage in a water tight pill bottle with your tender. A great product and price!

    Posted by Exploring the Outdoors on Mar 1st 2013

  9. Great for Small Survival Tins!

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 14th 2013

    We purchased these to put into small survival tins for our children. We have went to great lengths to teach them how to use them properly and they are extremely good for those small kits!

  10. Best miniature!

    Posted by ASM Burkhart, Troop 761 on Feb 5th 2013

    I've carried a miniature ferrocerium rod wrapped in a cotton ball and masking tape in my wallet for years. It has been quite handy several times. When I recently bought a GobSpark Armageddon, I went ahead and got several FireSteel miniatures to give to new Boy Scouts when they joined our Troop, so they could add it to their "10 Essentials" pack. I was so impressed with how much better they were than the one I'd been carrying, that I replaced my old one with a new one. It's GREAT!

  11. Amazing

    Posted by Brian on Feb 1st 2013

    For the size of this firesteel, it still does a surprizingly great job! It's in my altoid tin kit. They fit really well. You could even go up a size or two and still fit well.

  12. Repeat customer

    Posted by Ray Kirk on Jan 15th 2013

    I am a repeat customer and have had very good success with these small firesteels.
    I use the three small sizes to attach to wood to make them almost unbreakable. When attached to a striker with a thong, every thing you need to start the fire is together. I also wrap them under the paracord handles on some of my knives for emergencies and have a striker notch on the butt of the knife to keep from ruining the cutting edge.

  13. Excellent

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 14th 2013

    Super fast shipping, excellent product

  14. FireSteel Mod coming up

    Posted by Mike Allegany Co NY SAR Team Leader on Jan 9th 2013

    I gave the smaller FireSteel a 4 but NOT because I'm dissatisfied with it. I'm a 1/2 x 4" FireSteel "Junkie!" I am sending my Ethan Becker BK-2, BK-9, and BK-11 knives to a machine shop to have the topside of the tangs machined to inlay / industrially bond the smaller FireSteels to them as a permanent
    "last best option"for Survival Firecrafting. The knives are ALWAYS with me so I'm spending a little more to insure that a fast, dependable means of starting an unplanned survival campfire will always be with me as well. I will submit a photo of the finished product to FireSteel.com for anyone that might be interested in it.

  15. Great product

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 7th 2013

    I received my product very quickly and I am very satisfied

  16. Perfect for edc

    Posted by Hampton on Dec 13th 2012

    Great product, arrived quickly, so much better and cheaper than buying something else and breaking the handle off. Will fit in any kit

  17. Perfect size to stash for a great price.

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 12th 2012

    These are absolutely the best size on this website if you want to make sure you always have a reliable fire starting method. They are perfect to place inside a strand of paracord or even put in the stock of a .22.

    They fit just about everywhere, and for the price there's no reason not to buy a bunch and put them in all your jackets bags kits and other assorted gear items.

  18. Great for survival packs!

    Posted by Stone on Dec 7th 2012

    Just got both mini steels and the work excellent! Once you get this little beast going it just rains sparks where you need them the most! I had no trouble holding it, despite its size, and it fits excellent in my Survival Capsule. Thanks!

  19. Great for wallets and zipper pull

    Posted by blaze on Nov 13th 2012

    Perfect size to place in a paracord zipper pull. That way you can have access to fire on all your gear.

  20. Small but POWERFUL!!!

    Posted by Carl on Jul 23rd 2012

    It's bigger than expected(because we don't use inch as units). Though small, the spark is BIGGER than any one I bought before!!

    A little bit hard to hold, but great for small packs.
