The perfect fire tool for carry in a knife sheath ferro-loop or just in a pack. The tool is simple in design and offers plenty of storage for tinder or water purification tablets. The ferrocerium rod is replaceable so you won't need to discard this tool when the rod is worn out. Use a sharp 90 degree edge to strike such as the spine of a knife.
Top customer reviews
The quality of machining is very high.
The user replaceable firesteel threads are sharp and well cut.
The capsule is exactly the right size to hold one Tinder Quik impregnated cotton fire starter.
It comes in a very nice little box that would make it a nice gift to present to someone.
I was almost exactly what I was hoping it would be.
Price is just a little high, compared to other firesteels. (But you do get what you pay for, in this case.)
The rod is 5/16" instead of the more common 3/8" firesteel loops sewn into many custom knife sheaths.
The material left for the 'hole' in the cap that makes up the lanyard retainer seems far too thin to withstand much abuse.
Excellent example of American craftsmanship. Highly recommended.
***Please note that all ferrocerium firesteels require experience, skill, and practice to use correctly. Just like a musical instrument, don't assume you'll be an instant virtuoso the first time you try to use it.
Will buy more.
Oh and you can buy replacement ferro rods when you use it up.
