The FireSteel Survival™ Series by FireSteel.com are 5/16 of an inch thick.
The Survival 3.15 FireSteel™ by FireSteel.com with a special Super FireSteel Scraper, magnesium tinder rod, and lanyard. The firesteel rod measures 5/16ths of an inch in diameter and is x 3.15 inches long. Also includes a tinder rod made of soft magnesium.
To use the magnesium as tinder, simply scrape a small pile of shavings off the soft magnesium rod. When a spark from the FireSteel hits the magnesium, the magnesium will easily catch on fire and burn at a temperature of 4000 degrees F (2200 °C). This can then be used to ingnite your natural tinder
A big advantage to carrying a piece of magnesium for tinder is that it will not become damp or wet.
Another great combination for starting fires under just about any conditions. Find out why FireSteel.com is rated #1 by thousands throughout the world!

The reason why you buy a FireSteel is because it does what you need it to do. No Hype required. Put one in your fire kit. You will be glad you did.

I love having options and this certainly gives me another option for firestarting. I teach fire building and am always anxious to show new methods and techniques.

I work as a conservation land manager helping oversee more than 300,000 acres in Maine. In function of my work, I spend a considerable time camping in remote locations. The FireSteel Survival 3.15 with scrapper, magnesium, and lanyard proves to be rock solid from a safety and preparedness perspective, but just as important, and also from my on-the-ground experience, is excellent for day to day use. Since acquiring my kit, it’s been lighting my cooking fires and stoves successfully on a near daily basis. This FireSteel Survival 3.15 package is simply a no-brainer if you work or spend considerable time in the woods, and like to be nimble. Light, compact, and well put together, you will not be disappointed with these extremely usable fire starting tools. Quite simply, the FireSteel Survival 3.15 works.

Of the products, I like the fire steel Armageddon 3.0 the best. I make knives and have started adding them to the sheaths for a extra. I also have been adding deer antler tips to the end of the rod to give a little extra to hold on to when striking. I do this by drilling out the antler and using epoxy to secure. This makes the rod easier but looks good to. Great product, great price. I have been recommending this product to other campers and people in my Boy Scout troop.

This stuff is well priced and creates showers of hot sparks so easily.
Lanyard is a great part of the whole kit as well.
Works so well! Going to buy many more for all my bags.
