Description

The FireSteel.com Micro FireSteel™ is is our smallest FireSteel Rod.  The rod is ultra thin - only 3/32 of an inch in diameter, two inches long, and weighs just 0.053 of an ounce.  Put another way, there are over 300 Micro FireSteel.com FireSteels in every pound!

Made of the same special high sparking ferrocerium formula used by all of its larger FireSteel.com FireSteel relatives, the Micro FireSteel™ can be utilized to make fires when space is at an absolute premium.

Because it is very thin, extra care is needed when scraping it.*

*THIS ROD IS VERY THIN AND NOT RECOMMENDED FOR HEAVY USE.  FOR VERY SMALL SURVIVAL KITS I RECOMMEND THE MINIATURE FIRESTEELS OR THE PUP FIRESTEELS.

    Perfect for lanyards

    Posted by Dan D on Jan 24th 2021

    This fire steel easily fits into the sleeve of 550 paracord, if you purchase “firecord” and seal the fire steel inside you will always have what you need to make a fire. Then make your knife lanyard out of the paracord with the. Firs steel sealed inside, it is light, easy to carry, perfect for edc. It’s about the size of one match with the ability to make the same amount of fires as a box of matches.

    Micro Firesteel

    Posted by Wes Taylor on Jan 15th 2021

    Fits in a SAK Farmer and probably larger folders. I used the back of the saw to throw enough sparks to ignite some fluffed up jute and fatwood today. One thing to watch out for... the micro firesteel will fall out when you open any of the tools, it would be easy to lose, (ask me how I know, smh).

    Firesteel micro

    Posted by Mark on Dec 31st 2020

    Purchased this in an attempt to fit it in a slot of a Swiss Army knife either the pen or tweezers unfortunately for me it was still too large of a diameter to fit I will fit it into the nylon sheath that I have for the knife I would purchase again when needed.

    Fire breathing pencil lead.

    Yup, it's tiny. I neglected the warning of breaking it and put some pressure on it, it throws plenty of spark to start decent tinder. These are just cute, if you can't get 50 cents worth of fun with it if nothing else, there is something wrong with ya.

    Emergency carry

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 28th 2018

    This rod is really small. Still, the material is good, as all FireSteel.com products, so it throws good sparks. It is so thin, I was afraid it would break with the first stroke, but it held up well. I altered my grip, supporting it against my finger. The beauty of this micro is that it can be carried anywhere. I slipped it (plus a drill bit as striker, plus 2" of jute twine tinder) into a section of soda straw, and I keep it in my wallet.

    I was looking for something to put in to a fishing kit. These work amazingly! Throw excellent sparks for size.
