    Firesteel Armageddon

    Posted by Gus Koerner on Aug 22nd 2019

    This is my first real ferro rod, and I love it! I am glad I didn't get any shorter than the 3 inch, as I may have a hard time using it. 4 inch would not have fit in my fire tin. I'm also glad I got a hole in it for my lanyard. I like this so much, I am getting my two adult sons one for Christmas!

    3/8 X 4 Armageddon

    I’ve developed the Pivot Locking Kydex firesteel holder and these are for the Kydex customers I make Sheaths for. I wouldn’t buy my ferro rods at any other place but It started with the 1/2” X6” rod I bought 4 years ago and I think they’re perfect.

    It takes a much sharper edge to scrape off sparks than what I am used to. This implies it's a much harder steel. From what I have read, a harder steel is easier to get sparks on a short scrape from the end. I did not find this to be true with this steel. So at this time, i am not impressed.

    Just what I was looking for. Small enough to carry on a key ring with the small scraper in your pocket but still big enough to get a firm hold and throws enough spark to get the job done. Obviously won't throw a shower of sparks like the 7" rod in my fire kit but in an overnight stranded situation it will save a life.
