The FireSteel Survival™ Series by FireSteel.com are 5/16 of an inch thick.
The Survival 4.0 FireSteel with lanyard hole is 4 inches long
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:
I do not recommend attempting to drill your own holes into a FireSteel! To drill a FireSteel safely requires rigourous saftey measures and specialized equipment - 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.

Just plain great! Try one of these next to your bud's wally world toy and watch him throw his into the trash. You can start a fire in the rain with one of these.

If you cannot start a fire with this product- stay home. Incredible sparks!

I immediately took my new Firesteel out and put it to test on a log in my back yard. I had just purchased a new Hunting knife, and it had a good FLAT area on top of the blade which worked really well to strike my fire. I used a Cotton Ball with Petroleum Jelly to get the fire started, and the spark took to it right away.
Love it, and I have a heavy duty key ring strung through the hole of the Firestell, which will help me keep it secured.

I attached this fire steel to a piece of cedar and pinned it on. Worked great and made a feather stick and had a fire in three strikes after coating was removed
