    excellent little spark thrower

    Posted by David Fairchild on May 14th 2020

    Don't worry it's a bit small, this will compete with the big boys for throwing some fire starting sparks.

    Small but effective

    Posted by Mark Ball on Jan 7th 2020

    I looked at several different sizes of firesteel. The miniature is really too small for most used. However it worked and it work pretty well. I use it with a little duct tape “handle”. I can carry it on my key chain and not even know it is there. Bigger is better for starting a fire but I don’t like to carry a 6 oz. firesteel. So if you want a small light emergency steel this is it!

    Better than I hoped!

    I purchased the tiniest rods and expected that they'd be fragile as a consequence. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. I've heard great things about - and now I know that it was not simply hot air!

    Should of purchased a long time ago

    My BOB, along with my wife's, needed the addition of fire steels. After research I found the best regarded steels came from Firesteel.Com. I ordered a couple of steels and scrapers. And the shipping charge was only $4.95 (a place where most business charge $$ for their handling and packaging). In 3 days the order was in my mailbox!!! To my surprise, they arrived in a very small pkg and once opened, found the steels wrapped in an 81/2 x 11 pice of paper.......which was the instructions on how to best use your steels. I found that this "packaging" was totally bulk, no fuzzy marketing.......just common sense that keeps the cost to the customer at a minimum. I really appreciate this!!! But the best part are the steels themselves........WOW. Talk about a HOT SPARK. My only concern was that I didn't order any magnesium at the same time. But this company ROCKS. Just check out the reviews. And no, I have no affiliation with this company. I just like giving credit where credit is due. Thanks for a great product!!!! Kirk

    Best for Altoid and Mini Kits

    Posted by James from Canada on Apr 2nd 2015

    I ordered this along with the Micro and the Tiny, I would suggest that this is the smallest you go with if you want a small fire steel for mini survival kits.

    This thing is little. I superglued mine to the side of a mini bic as a back up. Practiced using it to light a vaseline impregnated cotton ball and the sparks started it right up in 17 degree weather. I used the back of the blade of a Spyderco ladybug with locking blade. Worked great! Very small, well rounded fire kit! I also used it to light my alcohol stove in 17 degree weather. Noticed that it didn't throw the sparks quite as far as my much larger firesteel but worked none the less. I will be ordering more of these!
