    Great for Paracord Bracelet with Fire Kit

    Posted by Dave M. on Sep 1st 2013

    I purchase the firesteel pup to use in my paracord bracelet fire making kit. I do have to shorten them by about a half in or so and then weave them in with small piece of fatwood( aprox the same length and diameter) and 3 strands of jute twine and a whistle buckle. I have the ability to slide it out and reinsert it if i want. Great product.

    Large enough ...

    Posted by Steve on Aug 31st 2013

    Small enough but large enough for your EDC. Inexpensive enough to have more than one. Buy one large rod that you may lose or lend when you need it or buy 5 or 6 and have backups. Drop in your pocket for that quick fix fire.

    Quality product, cant go wrong

    Posted by Unknown Prepper on Aug 20th 2013

    Not my first ferro rod purchse with Ron, and wont be my last. Many of my previous ferro rods not included in my various kits have gone to friends. This rod goes into my car survival kit, next to my Ziploc bowl of Vaseline-soaked cotton balls. I expect to be able to start a fire with this rod in under 3 strikes - same as with my other ferro rods.

    FireSteel Pup

    Posted by Michael Foster on May 20th 2013

    My son had a Magnesium - Ferro fire starting tool. In the process of moving the ferro rod was broken off (bad glue) and lost. My son, being 9, was devastated because it was his best fire starter. I had no idea where to look for a replacement. I found and easily found the exact replacement (FireSteel Pup). Within 3 minutes of finding the website, I was entering my card and shipping info. My son was not so sure because the lost one "was the best sparking fire starter that he ever had". When we received the new rod, he was jumping with joy because of the perfect fit and how easy it was to produce sparks. has already been saved into my favorites and from now on will be the first place I look. I am 100% satisfied with the ease of ordering, delivery of the product and quality of the merchandise received.

    Best I've Found

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 1st 2013

    Was looking for a fire starting system to go into my Altoids survival cans for me and my friends. Got a scraper also and they take up little room to save space. And with them i can cut back on back ups because its really all you need with some tinder.

    These work very well for their size and are perfect for the paracord survival bracelets I make!

    These are great for their size. They work really well. I put them in an old platic medicine container with the striker, magnesium rod, and some cotton balls. I store them in both my vehicles just in case.
