    Holy Smokes...

    Posted by John Zabinsky on Jun 25th 2018

    Not only does this firesteel work, but it has been fun learning to use it properly on this camping trip. Although my party sometimes laughs at my efforts to make a fire from scratch just to cook up a steak on a rock, it's all part of the adventure. I made a wood handle for my steel and it has been working great. It is very satisfying to finally set your sticks ablaze using this woodsman's tool. Also, huge shout out to the FireSteel team for their excellent customer service and friendliness! Be safe out there!

    The best firesteel for the best price

    Posted by Nicholas Smith on Mar 8th 2018 offers extremely affordable and customizable products. I use my Survival 3.15 to light tinder for my woodstove nearly every night. It is the only steel that I have used thus far that throws off palpable heat with each strike. The sparks burn longer and hotter than my other brands: I set my tinder on fire, placed it in the stove, and looked down to find several chucks were still sparking. I also own two FireSteel Minis, and they function just as well. This is the only brand you will ever need.

  • 5 makes the best fero rods I have found.

    I have many sizes of rods, but the 3.15" with lanyard hole is a great size to attach to a knife sheath, or as I like to do, glue them into a fatwood handle. Along with the Super Scraper, my fatwood/fero rod tool gives me fire in the wettest conditions in a small package.

    Best I've Used

    Posted by Shane Cullihall on Oct 28th 2016

    This firesteel is by far the best and easiest to use of all types I've tried. Great sparks with minimal effort, and it was delivered quickly even though I'm in Canada (ships from USA). I'll definitely be buying more of these!

    Best firesteels! Period.

    Posted by J.Connor on Oct 15th 2016

    You can't go wrong with the rods from They are by far, the best rods, with superior materials. When you are serious about having a fire steel that will actual light a fire, then you have come to the right place. Excellent materials, many size and variation options, and great prices make these ferro rods the best.

    Will more than serve my purposes

    Posted by Don on Oct 4th 2016

    I'm very happy with this product. Only time will tell on longevity but it definitely throws more spark than other steels I've owned. The lanyard hole is a plus. Shipping was very fast. The products I purchased were at my mailbox in less than 48hrs from the time of the order. Customer for life now .
