Our Super Scrapers are attached using lanyards made from 7-strand 550 paracord.
As mentioned in the FireSteels with Lanyard Holes section, drilling a hole into your firesteel is a very difficult and even dangerous proposition.
FireSteel.com firesteels throw a shower of white hot sparks when you scrape or strike them, imagine what would happen if you attempted to drill into them with a sharp metal drill bit!
Fortunately FireSteel.com has the process and facilities to drill nice neat holes into your firesteel. This allows us to lace on a handy FireSteel Scraper (also known as FireSteel Striker) using a length of 550 Paracord lanyard.
Below are our blank FireSteel rods that come with scraper and lanyard listed in order of diameter (Thickness) with available lengths listed:
- Survival FireSteel™ series are 5/16 of an inch in diameter
