    I have several of these and different models. They work great. I have given them to friends and family. Only four stars because of the price.

    Awesome Ferro rods!

    Posted by Martin B on Jun 13th 2021

    Excellent product! These work far better than other cheap stuff you find on the market. These spark easily, and the size selection enables you to select the right size for your survival kit. I liked the first two I bought so much, I bought two more.

    Perfect Fit

    Posted by Steve Jar on May 8th 2021

    I got the 4 inch FireSteel with the hole in the end. It fits in my sheath loop just perfect. The hole allows me to put something through it to keep it from falling through. I love it and just want to thank you for this neat steel.

    Now I know

    Posted by Tom Bailey on Jan 31st 2021

    I have used many ferro rods over the years including several firesteels. I have long ones, short ones, skinny ones and fat ones but when I got the Armadeddon, I set up a safe place to give it a go. The second scrape and the shower of very very hot sparks flew in such abundance that my tinder bundles was engulfed before I could pick it up. I have never seen such a tremendous volume of hot sparks from anything I have ever used. The reason it took me two scrapes was simply I was not utilizing the scraper as I should have. On the second scrape, I have enough sparks spewing forth, before I had traveled an inch. They simply don't get make better products than these guys at Firesteel. I will be ordering more in the very near future to make sure we have double redundancy in our emergency supplies for each member of my family.

    Want sparks? But these

    Posted by Joe on Nov 8th 2020

    Listen. It sucks trying to get inferior metals to spark. This brand is phenomenal. You can throw sparks quite a ways with this. I just use the back of my Mora knife that I filed a sharp 90 on and it works perfectly. Trust me. These are the steels you want. This company specializes in this. They stake their entire reputation on this. Plus they are from New Hampshire and that’s my home state so I’m a little biased! Smile.

    3/8 firesteel

    Posted by John Brenne on Sep 25th 2020

    Purchased the 3/8 Armageddon with strikers in 6,5, and 4 inch lengths. I carry them in my leather knife sheaths so 3/8 is fixed size fore me. These are great firesteels and Ron's customer service is even better. Highly recommend.
