Staff Review

What can we say that hasn’t already been said about these fantastic pieces of kit? They are the original and, in our opinion, the best firesteel on the market & it is one we use on our courses. We trialled plenty of other ferrocerium (‘firesteel’) rods before selecting the Light My Fire product to offer within the shop. Those that we tested appear to have be made from a different proportional blend of materials. In some cases this lead to the steel wearing away dramatically faster than the Light My Fire Firesteel, or worse, generating hardly any sparks. Light My Fire believe that you should be able to get around 3,000 strikes from their Scout model firesteel and we believe them!
