    4” Armageddon

    Posted by Rob on Sep 25th 2019

    I picked up a few rods, scrapers and magnesium bars to build some fire making kits to go in my hunting and hiking packs. I had never used fire steel previously but decided to give them a try after once again being failed by a lighter. I followed the instructions and tried lighting a cotton ball doused in vaseline. To my shock it lit first try and burned for quite some time. Didn’t even use the magnesium. I am very impressed with quality of the sparks these rods throw as well as the product in general. I may well buy some more as gifts for a few hunting friends. Great product!

    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!

    armagedden 4" X 5/16 striker

    Posted by david Mashburn on Jul 12th 2019

    I should have paid more attention, I meant to order a 4"x1/2" rod. I am getting a bit jaded having been exposed to so many strikers over the years. The current rage is for the #2 or medium rod as it has a higher mag. content. That is particular true with the Leberlen striker. It definitely produces sparks that burn longer. I notice that Going Gear is now advertising it's strikers as mischrods(#2) Dave Canterbury has a video about mischrods. Over twenty years ago, I cut my teeth(so to speak) on mischrods. Suddenly mischrods went away and on the #1 rods were available. It's all very confusing. Anyway I like the #2 rods. There aren't too many good scrapers around. DMashburn

    3/8 X 4 Armageddon

    Posted by Scott Thibodeau on Mar 15th 2019

    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 firesteel.com. It started with the 1/2” X6” rod I bought 4 years ago and I think they’re perfect.

    FIRESTEEL ARMAGEDDON

    Posted by Keith W McClannen on Feb 23rd 2019

    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.
