  • Adding a lanyard hole to your FireSteel allows you to thread a lanyard for attachment to your gear or for easier holding

 Product Description

The lanyard hole in the FireSteel comes in handy when you want to add a lanyard or attach the FireSteel to your gear.

An important note about lanyard holes in FireSteel.com FireSteels:

We do not recommend attempting to drill your own holes into any FireSteel!  To drill a FireSteel lanyard hole safely requires rigorous safety measures and specialized equipment.  Think about it:  when a drill bit bites into the FireSteel it will produce a huge shower of sparks with temperatures over 5000 degrees F.  The FireSteel sparks will also emit an exceedingly bright light, which could cause damage to your retina.

Don't take a chance with your safety.  If you want to string your FireSteel onto a lanyard, get one with a pre-drilled hole.

  1. Great prices for VERY Hot Sparking rods

    Posted by Woody on Jul 6th 2018

    For a few years now I've been using FireSteel.com rods & strikers. I've included them in EDC kits, vehicle kits & emergency go bag kits. They've always worked above n beyond any of the 'bargin' brands due to throwing more and hotter sparks. You can't go wrong picking up any of their rods.

  2. The best firesteel for the best price

    Posted by Nicholas Smith on Mar 8th 2018

    FireSteel.com offers extremely affordable and customizable products. I use my Survival 3.15 to light tinder for my woodstove nearly every night. It is the only steel that I have used thus far that throws off palpable heat with each strike. The sparks burn longer and hotter than my other brands: I set my tinder on fire, placed it in the stove, and looked down to find several chucks were still sparking. I also own two FireSteel Minis, and they function just as well. This is the only brand you will ever need.

  3. Firesteel.com makes the best fero rods I have found.

    Posted by Cameron Hummel on Jan 22nd 2018

    I have many sizes of Firesteel.com rods, but the 3.15" with lanyard hole is a great size to attach to a knife sheath, or as I like to do, glue them into a fatwood handle. Along with the Super Scraper, my fatwood/fero rod tool gives me fire in the wettest conditions in a small package.

  4. Will more than serve my purposes

    Posted by Don on Oct 4th 2016

    I'm very happy with this product. Only time will tell on longevity but it definitely throws more spark than other steels I've owned. The lanyard hole is a plus.

    Shipping was very fast. The products I purchased were at my mailbox in less than 48hrs from the time of the order. Customer for life now

  5. On my car key rings!

    Posted by Gregory Turner on Apr 12th 2016

    I connect one of these firesteels and a Super Scraper together using a split-ring and then attach the split-ring to my car key ring. Whenever I have my car keys with me, I have the means to make a fire. I also keep a Firesteel, Super Scraper, compass and a Storm Emergency Whistle on a paracord lanyard in the glove box of each car.

  6. Nice touch

    Posted by Tim on Feb 5th 2016

    The Firesteel with lanyard hole makes it simple to add a scraper, and even a magnesium bar, to assemble a great kit to have in the car, your go bag, or anywhere you might need fire-starting gear.


    Posted by Mike on Mar 17th 2015

    I've stashed these steels in every piece of gear that I carry. I've used them many times myself and now I put Ironwood handles on them and give them to friends. Great product!!

  8. Excellent compact firesteel!

    Posted by JD Mandrell on Mar 10th 2015

    Throws a nice shower of sparks easily. I tried it with a few different scrapers, and even the spine of my Randall Model 18. I would gladly buy from Firesteel.com again!

  9. Two birds with one strike ;)

    Posted by Godfrey Harrison on Mar 1st 2015

    This is for the Survival 3.15 ferro rod AND the Bunker 4.0, so please bear with me. I wear the 3.15 around my neck (with my cross) and I have it at all times. the size is (at 5/16") a light weight but easily held size and has enough body to make holding easy. I have played with it long enough to try to wear it out, but it just ain't gonna happen.

    The Bunker 4.0 is short enough to hold but still put in a pocket and is a great 1/2" in diameter. I have played with it but have no illusions that I'll outlast it :) It is in my BOB at this time. price and durability is right. the 3.15 is easier to carry but both are quality items.

    I make fires in my hibashi (sp?). I had a blast.

    I was using petro-cotton balls and very wet twigs and had not one bit of trouble making fires. I think my neighbors thought I was nuts, but I had fun, which at that time was needed.

  10. Great Fire-steels!

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 13th 2014

    Ron has top quality products at a great price. I get supplies for the young men I mentor and send all my buddies here as well. Wouldn't do that if this wasn't the good stuff. This is the place for starting a fire...K

  11. Firesteel.com Firesteels.

    Posted by John Danow on Aug 26th 2013

    As usual, these are the best firesteels on the market. Service from Ron is prompt, and prices are more than fair. I would recomend these firesteels to anyone; and get the strikers; also excellent.

  12. How do you describe the best?

    Posted by Max in Arizona on Nov 19th 2012

    Have several sizes of FireSteels in my "small, medium, large and car" GO bags and on the ID tag chain around my neck. Also, the FireSteel scrapers are a quantum leap ahead.

  13. get it with a hole

    Posted by Dale in colorado on Sep 2nd 2012

    I love the fire steels,...With that hole, I can add a handle

  14. amazing product

    Posted by Alex on May 1st 2012

    This firesteel is no knock off with soft metals to scrape. It is huge and but not huge in size. fits right next to my stone pouch on my 499 survival knife. and goes with me everywhere in the backcountry even if i leave my pack behind for a scout i also know i have fire and the package I turned into my own tinder box just electrical tape it and pack it full of dryer lint and go start ur fire. so pleased with this product i want to get 5-10 more just for every other bag kit, survival kit, u name it or just have on ur neck.

  15. Great!

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 9th 2012

    I was worried that this one would be too small. So wrong! I've been scraping on this thing non stop, and it looks like it'll last forever! And this thing is just showering sparks! Very satisfied!
