  1. Works every time

    Posted by Mike on Jan 2nd 2016

    I make my own handles (holders) and have had one for a while now. It works. I am now going to make some up for gifts for friends.

  2. It works for me

    Posted by Mike on Aug 6th 2015

    Arrived in great condition using the packing slip to protect the product was a clever idea. I ordered two and have one mounted in a handle I made, took it outside and it throws sparks so I am happy..

  3. Perfect size

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 21st 2014

    This is a great size for many of the sheaths out there. Excellent firesteels!

  4. Best product and World class customer service

    Posted by MB on Mar 16th 2014

    The fire steel preformed 100% as advertised and also comes with detailed instructions and tips for first time users. I also wanted to say that the customer service is outstanding, when I contacted Ron, I had a question about the shipping and was met with a quick and accurate response for my order and it was delivered on time with 100% accuracy and satisfaction.

  5. Awesome

    Posted by DBB on Feb 20th 2014

    Very good product. Extremely pleased.

  6. An Outstanding Product

    Posted by C R on Feb 11th 2014

    These firesteels are simply outstanding. The price, the buying experience, the quick handling and shipping, and your company ethic are all outstanding also. Your competitors, if you have any, must be envious.

  7. I trust my life to this

    Posted by Erick from Baltimore on Dec 9th 2013

    I look at fire as the single most important thing to ensure short term (and long term) survival. I love the sparks that are produced from firesteel.com products. In the wild, your tinder may not always be as easy to light as a cotton ball, and for this Mr. Fontaine delivers the perfect product. For damp or rough tinder like cedar bark shreds ( or feather sticks ), slowly scrape a small amount of material from the firesteel and strike one or two good sets of white hot sparks. They will continue to burn as well as light up the pile of scraped material. Instant fire even with damp tinder. Best of all, with the survival size, you have plenty to work with without carrying extra weight. I keep one attached to the back of my mora sheath using ranger bands as well as a gob spark ranger size in my pack, and another survival size in the get home bag in my car. This is a great product and great value.

  8. Ideal Firesteel

    Posted by Adventure Sworn on Nov 9th 2013

    I've worked with over a hundred firesteels from this site, and I just started using the Survival model. It's my new personal favorite for long-term wilderness trips. It shoots tremendous sparks, lasts [seemingly] forever, yet it doesn't have any unnecessary weight added.

  9. Long-lasting Excellent Quality Firesteel

    Posted by EDCE on Oct 2nd 2013

    Been using the survival and ranger firesteels from Firesteel.com for many years now. THEY ARE EXCELLENT!! I cannot recommend them too highly. Very easy to use and carry. Best of all they really work. I teach a machine shop class and have purchases hundreds of these firesteels for the students to use in projects. I am constantly getting comments from students, their parents, and friends on how well these work. I will be a repeat customer.

  10. Great Product

    Posted by Outland on May 29th 2013

    These rods throw a shower of white-hot sparks that will ignite a variety of man-made and natural tinders. Durable and reliable. I will be a repeat customer.

  11. They work

    Posted by Glenn Douglas on Mar 14th 2013

    I have been working with traditional flint and steel to start fires and decided to extend my capabilities so I bought the FireSteel Survival and the FireSteel Super scraper and when they came in I took them out in the yard where I had some fire making material and in just a few seconds and a few scraps I had a good fire started. I will be sure to ALWAYS have these items in my kit at all times. Thanks FireSteel for such a great product.

  12. Great sparker

    Posted by Mark on Mar 5th 2013

    This material sends a very hot shower of sparks. Awesome for any backpacker or anyone who goes into the woods. The order was filled very fast, I'll get more.

  13. Excellent Choice

    Posted by Jeff Specht on Feb 27th 2013

    I am very pleased with the quality of the product and the fast transaction and shipping. Buy with confidence.

  14. Perfect Size!

    Posted by Dustin Leonard on Jan 17th 2013

    I carry a firesteel on my keychain daily, and currently it is a ranger. Once I have worn through it, I will be replacing it with a survival firesteel without a doubt. I put antler handle on all sizes of these rods, and have been really wanting a survival. I definitely recommend this size!

  15. Great price, great product

    Posted by P Erickson Youth Pastor on Dec 26th 2012

    You get the opportunity to customize it to your liking. I bought 10 of these for a program I have started and looking forward to seeing the guys make birch tree handles.

    Posted by Mike Hull on Dec 14th 2012

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 17th 2012

    What an extremely fantastic firesteel. I keep them everywhere, in my go bag, both trucks, hell I even keep one in my pocket as part of my EDC.

    Posted by Dale in Colorado on Sep 26th 2012
