Awesome fire-starter that works 100% of the time. Great product and will buy again if mine ever runs out.
Man! This Sucker throws the Sparks!!!! So much easier to use than those small ferro rods. Fits very good in my big bear paw....! Please, keep kickin out this terrific product!!
After watching video after video I'm convinced these are the best rods, especially with lanyards and strikers! Saw a post with this rod in a tin for a survival kit, awesome idea! So I made a kit and put it in there. Thinking I may get a couple more for kits for my girls for their travels as well. Nice piece of kit and I'm looking at the other items as well: the flatpack stove and kuksa. Keep up the good work!
The website was easy to navigate and my son's were ecstatic when I surprised them with these!
Love this firestarter and this company! Awesome customer service, I damaged my ferro rod and they replaced it at no cost!
This thing throws flames
Will order more
This one is a beast. Huge shower of sparks. It will be going camping with me. Delivery was very fast!
Works well. Impressive results.
Great company. I was surprised how fast I received my fire rod. Was already imptwhenni had seen videos on the product and equally impressed when I had it in my hands. Thank you. Will definitely be purchasing more things from yall
Wonderful size to work with! Throws a river of sparks in all situations !!! A great emergency tool also! When hands and fingers are cold and numb, no fumbling with small size igniters!
My 10 year old son and I camp a lot! My son loves starting the campfire with a fire steel and the large one is easy for him to use and dependable as they come. A very fine quality product!
This is a great firestarter and much bigger than the ones my fellow guides use, thus ensuring I get a shower of sparks to more easily start my fires. I tend to use the semicircular scraper to get my fires going as I have not had as much success using the straight edge, but that’s probably just my inexperience with firestarter sticks and I’m sure I’ll improve.
will order more
Awesome item !! It will probably last the rest of my days..!!!
This thing creates great sparks. You must scrape off the outer layer first, as usual, then it shoots them out! I'm not a backpacker where I would be concerned work size and weight, so I'm wishing I had bought the longer one as it would be easier to hold and have a longer spark stroke. But this works plenty well.
This thing is a beast. Throws sparks like a flame thrower. Definitely recommend.
Works great! Awesome equipment!
After I bought/received lip I tried it and IMMEDIATELY went online and ordered a second one...that says it all !!!!
wow produces a hail of hot large sparks
best stiking rod I have ever owned.
An Excellent product. For my own use I'm going to put a longer lanyard on it for the striker. I bought this to help in teaching my Grandsons how to start fires in inclement weather
I tried the fire stick as soon as I received it. It put out a good supply of hot sparks, but I sanded the coating off and tried it again. What a tremendous difference that made as the hot sparks increased greatly. Be careful if you choose to sand it as sparks will occur while . It does not come with a handle that as I have seen in several adds.
Providing one has useful tender, wood ready ahead of using this excellent tool, a fire will be sustainable in just minutes. Amazing amount of sparks to get a fire started in a short amount of time. Great fire starter!
Let the sparks fly!!! I am new to this means of starting a fire, but it preformed wonderfully!!! I will never be without it at home or in the wild because you never know. Thank you for such a great produce.
Exactly as described. A great firestarter.
Absolutely amazing. I play with it so much I'll have to buy another just to make sure I've got what I need...when I need it.
I've started fires with so many random things. (Keep in mind a proper tinder)
This was the starter I needed.
hands down. Best available. Period.
Great addition to the go kit
Great product. Thanks so much.
Shipped and received in a timely manner. Is definitely what I was wanting. Have tried it out and it works even better than I had hoped.
Awesome ferro rod ! Throws a huge spark ! I love it !
Great piece of kit !
Well make, great shower of sparks, the best I have used
nice, compact, effective
I bought a lumen, first strike I used on a cotton ball/vaseline for my rocket stove. Wow, it started immediately, a true shower of sparks! So I bought the bigger one!
Very good. Does exactly what it is designed to do, and does it well.
Love the fact this comes with an attached striker. Gives off great spark. Can’t wait to try this out in the field.
Had to have a bigger one.
I love my smaller fire starter so much I had to get a bigger one. Love this product
Absolutely love this ferro rod, almost seemed comically large when I got it but it will obviously last a very long time and is just extremely fun to use. Also, their Ferro blend really is one of the best, this thing gives of some mean sparks!
Fire starters large and exactly what I wanted for winter survival in arctic Alaska!
Fire starters are works great
Gives a pretty good spark to start a fire. Even the short version (that I tested) has a comfortable length for a grab and for a long way to scratch for enough amount of sparks!
