    great product, fast shipping even over the holiday,have purchased from this company before have never had any problems with their products. Probably some of the best prices on the internet. I only give it 4 stars because I never give anything 5 stars there's always room for improvement. Most went towards christmas gifts. Have used their products in the past have always been able to make a fire. Really need to use there stryker or use a good carbon steel knives 4 best Sparks.

    Size Matters!

    In this case it makes for a small stowaway steel that can go almost anywhere and then go everywhere. it is the same great quality, and its as easy to use as a big ones, depending on the size of your hands. This is the best steel to have on hand when the big one gets left in the bag or at rig. Another great steel from Ron...K

    Perfect diameter for gutted 550 paracord

    Posted by Raphael Frommer on Mar 20th 2014

    Cut a suitably short length of 550 paracord, remove the 7 inner strands, slip in the miniature steel, sear the ends of the cord with a flame (per usual with paracord), and string onto your keychain.

    exactly what I wanted...a steel that sparks heavily, is small and easily stored in my survival kit. It came very fast (a couple days and friendly service. I don't give 5 stars very often but they deserve it!

    Coolest thing for a tiny kit

    Posted by Philip on Feb 11th 2014

    I had trouble envisioning how small this tool would be, but it is just perfect; large enough to grip and get a lot of strikes from, but small enough to fit into even the small camp or survival kits. i was going to put a handle on it, but it works fine for me without one. I'm very happy!

    The fact that it arrived in no time at all is just a bonus.
