    Pup Firesteels

    Posted by Thomas G Spearman on Jul 5th 2022

    Just the right size and length to accomplish my project which was drilling holes into wooden handles (axes and shovels) for the firesteels to fit in. The pup is large enough to create good sparks but small enough to fit into my survival tools without weakening them.

    Perfect size EDC Firesteel

    Posted by Bill on May 30th 2022

    Small enough to carry in a pocket organizer, and has enough mass to actually hold and use. I'm also not worried about breaking this when I use it!

    Pup Firesteel

    Probably my favorite firesteel. It fits anywhere-- a fire kit, emergency bag, glove compartment and low and behold it starts fire 100% of the time.

    Perfect for survival knifes!

    Perfect replacement for the original flint bar my survival came with. Performs better than the original bar creating bigger spark showers. Delivery was exactly as advertised. Highly recommended!

    The Pup

    Posted by Craig on Jun 2nd 2020

    Excellent choice for camping, or for a backyard "beer fire". (Sitting around small controlled backyard fire, while enjoying an adult beverage.) Very easy to use, with quick, excellent results.

    another good size ferro rod that throws plenty of sparks like all the rest of theirs. Pick a size. I'm going for one of each. lol.

    Great Steels!

    Posted by Rob Babcock on May 1st 2020

    This is at least the 5th or 6th order I've made from and not my last. They're simply fantastic steels! They produce good hot sparks and are large enough to make a good amount of fires. I use the Pup Steels for my backup fire kits; in that role they excel. They're small enough to fit into any of my various match cases yet large enough to be easy to use. Lastly the service is always outstanding!
