A little fat wood and a lot of sparks and.......FUEGO
Great tool. I give them out to my Hunter Ed students. They get to practice and are thrilled to get their own.
So I have to admit, I found their website completely by accident when I was researching where to buy a fire steal from, I guess there’s no coincidence there. So what I was looking to do is build a kit for my fall hikes and winter hikes that would give me more flexibility with my fire starting methods. I had tried a bunch of them before from online retailers mostly, cheap stuff off of Amazon, and I’m not afraid to admit it. The quality of these fires steels however, gives me much more peace of mind in knowing that I’m adding a higher quality piece to my kit. You really won’t be disappointed in trying any of their products and in a pinch it’s great knowing you have the best version of whatever you need on hand.
Excellent product good spark lights easily.
Very impressed with the quality of the sticker & the massive Flint that was included.
the pup ferro rods work great . I have been practicing with my firesteel mag bar using wax paper making fine shavings from the mag bar to start the fire .
Not the best sparks, wears down kind of easily, but overall good price for quality
I bought two of these to test them before committing to more at a larger size and price. I had bought some competitor's models at a lower price, which were advertised as ferro rods, but, while they initially sparked well, they soon wore down to an inner ribbed metal of some sort which does not spark at all. These inferior models (5/16 X 3) would probably start about 15-20 fires per rod, depending on the skill of the user, but quickly become useless. FireSteel rods, in a smaller size (1/4 X 3) have not done this. I purposely scraped one side repeatedly to see if it would wear down to this point and though I scraped it enough to start probably 25 fires or more, it has not failed to throw heavy-duty sparks. I have no doubt that I could start well over a few hundred fires with this one small rod. I am planning my next purchase of these, but, as the ones I have are working very well, it may not be for a while. I will, however, purchase these again.
Great size - fits in an altoid tin even. But small does not mean it is not mighty. The rod throws a nice hot spark very easily. Love this little guy.
