Absolutely hands down best ferro rods around !!
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.
If you have not tried firesteel flame throwers your missing out. Firesteel is the best . I always have one on me. Use it you'll see.
Amazing product with an outstanding company behind it, couldn't be happier used it to start a fire right out of the box worked without a hitch .
This is the best for steel I've ever used. It throws massive sparks every time, with the firesteel striker which is shaped perfectly. Very fast shipping, and extremely good and fast customer service. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a good firesteel.
I have plenty of ferro rods, still do, and all work to some extent, even the cheap chinese made ones. I expected a lot more from this company, and boy did i get it! It came fast and easy, and very reasonably price, I'd even say inexpensive. After scraping off the coating, and then using the included scraper, also a MUST buy, i was throwing sparks across my driveway, lighting the night. Some even burned so long and hot that they hit the ground after a 4 foot drop and continued to burn. This steel is like no other. I have had made damp feather sticks ignite like seasoned fat wood shavings. I'm definitely buying again. Beyond impressed, and dollar to fires started, this is going to end up being a small percentage of a penny for each fire lit. Don't buy cheap chinese ferro rods anymore, or expensive Swedish ones, buy an inexpensive, American made product that will pretty much guarantees you a fire every time if your skills are up to it.
I I originally bought two of these (1/4 X 3) with two strikers and have not been disappointed. I gave one to a friend of mine and he loves it too. I have used one of my original purchases exclusively and have not had an issues with this and it seems I cannot wear it down like what happened when I bought a cheaper version. I bought five of the 3/8 X 3 firesteels and strikers so I am prepared for a long, long time with regard to striking a fire. If you cannot start a fire with these you are either under water or could not start a fire with a gallon of gasoline and a blow torch. I highly recommend these.
I bought one of these to add to one of my survival knife set ups. It throws more sparks than any other steel I have ever used and can tell you compared to other fire steels I have this one is no joke......... except for one small detail......the Lynard hole that they claim to carefully drill centered is not centered at all. It is offset and I would be afraid to use it to secure it as it may break. Kinda ruins the extra I paid for the hole. Would have given 5 stars and probably have ordered 6 more already for all my knives if not for this. I gotta run this through the test to see how strong the offset drilled hole holds up.....and maybe it will surprise me.
Just received this fire steel and it works great. Should last a very long time. Will be doing business with this company again.
