Got the 6" Firesteel bunker in the middle of August this year and it had to sit till a good rain to try. Just got in from making feather sticks and shaving fatwood from a tree on our property with my boys. We made 2 fires in the pouring rain. The Firesteel throws sparks like no other can. Being able to show the kids how to use it is a real joy also. Thanks Firesteel.
Ferro rod barely throws sparks. To get any sparks at all, I have to apply so much pressure in the scrape that I am marring the steel of my knife. I’ve tried different knives and scrapers all with similar results. Definitely not worth the 4X the price of my other ferro rods of similar size.
After thoroughly testing many different products, found this one out of everything, to be the best . As ex-military, I can tell you that these have never failed me even in storms. This one has to be the largest and best one for the money, I will have to get a few more and store them in every pack and every vehicle. If you find fault in this product, then you need to just carry a lighter, because you don't know what you are doing.
Once again, it did not disappoint me one bit. Not the first time that I buy firesteel from them, and definitely will not the last time. Except it might take me longer to go through the half inch by 5” lol. But like the Godspark, it delivers a shower of sparks, enough to light up any dry tinder or feather sticks u want. Even my 11 yr old boy swears by it and always try to find a way to use his firesteel to light up any bbq grill he can. Anyway, this product is definitely something to get and add to any prep bag along with the knowledge on how to use it.
Bought this firesteel a week ago for a camping trip I just finished up. Thought about getting one of the cheaper Light My Fire ferro rods but went with this guy after hearing great things about Firesteel.com rods. Mostly from Joe Robinet. I was not disappointed. This thing throws sparks like a flame thrower. And the size of it makes it super easy to handle. Firesteel.com has won me over. No other ferro rod brands after this. Great job guys!
I own a lot of different " firesteels". Anytime I pick up another brand I end up comparing them against the standard in firesteels - FireSteel.com. More and more I am liking this 1/2" Bunker size as it seems the bigger the steel, the bigger the spark. It's more to carry, but the safety of a bigger, even easier spark is often worth it to me. Awesome and fast customer service and shipping. Thank you !
This is my 3rd order with firesteel.com, love their products! I already had one of these 1/2"×5", just "needed" another. This one is going into my new Self Reliance Outfitters bottle cooking kit. THE BEST FIRESTEELS!
I bought the Firesteel bunker 6, magnesium rod and super scraper. When my order came in, the first thing I wanted to do was to try everything out. I went outside in the back yard and gave it a shot. I used a cotton ball with vaseline and sent some sparks flying, it caught instantly. I then scraped some magnesium on some crumpled paper,same results.I couldn't be happier. I spend a lot of time in the bush, so this will definitely go into my packsack. Thanks for such great products.
