The FireSteel Armageddon Series by are 3/8 of an inch thick.

This rod is the 3 inch long Armageddon 3.0 FireSteel by with pre-drilled lanyard hole, plus the famous Super Scraper and lanyard to go with it. 

Add the optional Magnesium Tinder rod (3/8" x 3") and you'll have the means to start a fire even in damp conditions.

This FireSteel is one-inch shorter than the favorite of the US Army and US Air Force survival specialists - the regular sized Armageddon FireSteel (3/8" x 4").  If storage space is critical (as it may be in your survival kit), we recommend going with this slightly shorter 3" long rod for your emergency kit.

    very happy

    Posted by Jeff on Mar 4th 2015

    A well thought out simple piece of equipment for anyone venturing to the outdoors. With all the high tech stuff out there it's good to know that I can rely on something that has been around for ever and will always work if I need it. Thanks

    Best Firestarter Out There

    Posted by Dawn on Jan 22nd 2015

    I have various types of fire steels. All work but not all work well. This one I purchased from is by far the best out there. It shoots out large amounts of sparks every time and they catch fast. I am very impressed!

    Best Survival firestarter

    I have used FireSteel's to light countless fires and it is never not on my person when I am out in the wilderness. The firesteel and super scraper works wonderful and make short work of lighting a fire. I would trust my life with this as my fire starter. Thank you for a great product.

    Best I've ever used

    Posted by J.M. on Dec 15th 2014

    It produced the largest and longest burning spark I'd ever seen. I will be purchasing a couple more of these after the holidays. I'll keep them in all my outdoor gear and truck!!!!!!!

    still the best and.from my own state.

    Posted by stonemeadows on Dec 13th 2014

    After searching the other "fire rod" selling businesses I decided that sold the best and use them in fire starting kits that I give as gifts to hunters, fishing and other outdoor users.

    Works great-named it 'Fire-Spitter'

    Posted by Russ C. on Nov 27th 2014

    Very quick delivery. I'm glad I got the 3" version. After getting the coating off with a couple of strokes, it' creates a great shower of sparks. Able to start a fire with dryer lint/petroleum jelly in a few seconds. I ordered 2 (one for the truck, one for the pack) and am going back for more. Also, I recommend getting the combo on the lanyard-can't beat the price.
