    Big enough

    Posted by Mark Ball on Jan 7th 2020

    This little firesteel works great and is big enough to get the job done. Bigger is usually better for starting a fire but remember you have to carry everything with you in the woods. This is a light weight effective very usable size.

    Great little firesteel but little is the keyword. I bought 2 Armageddon’s as well. Small edc or emergency steel. You can’t go wrong with the price. Overall a good buy

    Big Results in a Little Package

    Posted by Jawfish on Jan 7th 2018

    I bought the 2" rods for use in our EDC kits (altoid regular and smalls) and thought they would make a great "emergency" rod. I like to try whatever I purchase so I know they will work when and if the time comes. WOW! Two inches is small and these are the blanks with no holes or grip. You would think that these would be difficult to use. Not the case. I tried it with and without magnesium (also bought from and both times had a fire in 1-2 strikes. These little guys strike easily and throw hot, large sparks. Very happy with these and they fit nicely even in the smalls altoid tins.

    For such a small rod. WOW! ordered these for x-mas gifts, mounted these in small pieces of antler and started making fire kits. used one rod for all my testing of cotton balls and cotton rounds, fatwood and char cloth. I used it for at least 200 strikes and still have at least 7/8 rod left .. I must say best 1.97 I ever spent , liked them so much I turned around and ordered more and included the embers to try, I'm sure ill like them also. Thank you to Ron and his family.

    First-Class Pup Ferro Rod

    Posted by D. Scribner on Oct 19th 2016

    I always purchase all the ferro and magnesium rods I use, or give as gifts, from from FireSteel (and have for many years). I will say that I can't think I've every used a ferro rod that has thrown more hot sparks per strike, or been more enjoyable to use or teach others with, than these. However, high quality ferrocerium and magnesium rods are only a *part* of what you get when you deal with FireSteel. I don't think I have ever received such personal, first-class customer service from any other company I've ever dealt with, and THAT is the reason that keeps me coming back!! Thank you!
