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.*

    Above and beyond service when I had a problem with my first order. This company will be at the top of my list whenever I buy ferro rods.

    Potential of lots of combinations with your existing gear. I glued it to my sheath and it produced showers of sparks.

    Firesteel Micro 3/32"

    Posted by David Sachs on Feb 28th 2021

    This thing throws really good sparks! The trick is to support it with your finger and draw it backwards against the striker. The tinder should be on the back side of the striker. Practice a few times and as long as you are using decent tinder, it works every time, easily. I bought these because they fit (with some length trimming) in a Swiss Army Knife corkscrew PERFECTLY. Also appreciate the eco-respect the company shows in their packaging. These are good people with a great product line.

    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.
