    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 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.

    Best of the best!

    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 Felt Like Zeus

    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.
