    My go to Firesteel

    Posted by MikeM on Dec 5th 2023

    The Armageddon is my favorite Firesteel. I’ve purchased multiple sizes depending on the sheath setup I’m using. Also have the Gobspark and it works great.; but the Armageddon with the lanyard hole is the BEST!!!

    Firesteel Survival Model

    Great size for any kit, nothing to scrape off before using the ferro rod. Just scrape and get sparks. These are great fire steels, worth the prices.

    Repeat Customer Many Times

    Posted by Terry Roemer on Feb 26th 2020

    I have ordered these many times. Initially some of the smaller bars (cheaper) and have moved up in size. I give them to family members and I have them in go bags. I am not the type that has mastered rubbing sticks together to start a fire but these work and are easy to use, wet or dry. The first time I ordered (several years ago) I was trying one out in my lap. I was using a tissue and with one strike I had a fire on my leg!! There are commercial brands that may have more advertising recognition but none that work better or as well.

    Very pleased with product

    Posted by Brock holston on Mar 23rd 2019

    Comparing it to light my fire the fire steel is harder to spark. As in a lot of strikes with no sparks. The light my fire sparked very easily. With that being said yours will produce much better sparks bigger sparks and I feel start stuff in not so perfect conditions. Been using it to light crop residue drifts by using a little diesel fuel and been ignighting it easily. Beats a lighter in the high winds.

    Great Firestarter

    Posted by Roger on Sep 9th 2018

    Scrape back the black and it's sparks galore. Worked great on mag bars, vaseline cotton and dryer lint. My only "gripe" is that the hole is a bit tight to easily thread paracord. I expect there are limits to the hole size on 5/16 so my next purchase will be larger diameters.
