    FireSteel Armageddon, "HUGE"!

    Posted by Rob from Mississippi on Sep 8th 2020

    Hello. Like other reviewers, i debated between the 4", 5" or 6"! So glad i ordered the 6" Armageddon FireSteel! I wrapped 3" Gorilla tape and 1.88" Duck tape (to capture magnesium shavings in windy conditions) on one end of the rod. Ilma has been great to listen to ideas and assist with being 'prepper' innovative. I appreciate her and Great products and terrific service!

    Solid Company and Product

    Posted by Rick on Aug 3rd 2020

    Have bought several times from this company. Product has always been top notch. Speed of service has always been fast. Customer service was helpful the one time I had a product question. Prices are good. You may find something a few pennies cheaper, but that’s not a reason to buy from anywhere else, in my opinion, If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it and these guys have their act together.

    6” Armageddon

    Posted by Mikel McCorvey on Jul 31st 2020

    Bought the 6” version—a beast. Love how it sparks. I actually like it better than my GobSpark. I do wish the lanyard hole was slightly larger — tough to get paracord through it. Highly recommend.

    Firesteel rods

    Posted by Jerry Hollberg on Jul 17th 2020

    Wonderful Product...Hands down the Most effective Ferrocerium rods I have ever used...My family demanded that I get them these firesteels and to date I have bought at least 7. Together with the Magnesium rod, a fire can be started under almost ANY condition.. In fact, shredded jute twine will burst into flame with a good shower of sparks from one of these sticks..

    Fantastic product

    Posted by Sullivan Chainey on Jun 5th 2020

    Throws gobs of sparks. Not too soft, not too hard. I made a fat wood handle for mine. I wish I could upload a picture. This FireSteel is way better than the Bayite. Those are too hard and don’t throw good sparks.
