    I was able to make a fire in a thunderous rain storm in the Cascade Mountains this last weekend. I recommend this bunker Firesteel to anyone. One strike and I had a fire when I needed it. Thank You Thank You.

    Bunker 1/2" x 6"

    Posted by Squirrel on May 25th 2020

    Outstanding. Right out of the gate, dropped (accidentally) 3' onto a terrazzo floor... It bounced and rang like a bell! Good to know how tough it is after reading about so many Chinese versions shattering. Looking forward to the traditional hand-forged kit soon

    6" Bunker, 4th of July baby!

    Posted by David Fairchild on Apr 11th 2020

    This arrived so fast I wasn't expecting it. A friend, who is familiar with using ferro rods stopped off and we were laughing at the huge shower of sparks this will produce. I doubt there is better out there. Even a novice like myself had NO problems lighting their fire starter in one easy stroke. I have other ferro rods, but this is the first to gain my confidence and love. I used a old pair of scissors for a striker (first thing in arms reach) Just buy one, it'll at least make you laugh as you shower whatever in sparks...not like other ferro rods.

    Best FireSteel around!

    Posted by Jordan Monier on Mar 3rd 2020

    This is perfect for a long term survival bag or your home emergency kit. This thing is huge and will provide more fires than I should ever need. The sparks this thing throws are hands down the best I have seen. If you can’t get a fire going with this you’re probably underwater. I would highly recommend this product for the quality and the excellent customer service.

    I’ve had a few fire steels and as a self proclaimed bug out aficionado, I just saw this fire steel at 4 inches is a great bang for your buck. This big hunk of ferro will last a lifetime, has good spark, and packs nicely. The quality from is superior to other brands and buying a large steel is very practical. would absolutely recommend.
