TBS Large Firesteel - A Fatboy Firesteel Rod encased in Aluminium
The TBS Firesteel is, quite simply, a brilliant product but now we have chosen to offer the same formulation of firesteel but 30% thicker. We have beefed it up to 12.5mm thick from 9.5mm and it is encased in machined aluminium.
The main advantage to mounting the firesteel in its own case is simply because it helps protect it from damage but the ferro rod is also removeable and replaceable when you eventually wear it out.
I know there about a thousand different types on the market today but I honestly believe that you cannot get more bang for your buck than our Firesteels.
Using the striker it gives off a massive shower of white hot sparks thanks to the addition of just little more of the combustible metals. After using quite a few different products we were suitably impressed with this model and I really liked the fact that there was no faff and flash, just a simple steel with a great striker.
I know a lot of people will automatically use the back of their knife but you really can't get better than a dedicated striker and this one just works. You can either use the side or the curved tip to get a brilliant result and it has the added bonus of having a measuring scale (ideal as a roamer for maps) and a Bottle opener that doubles as a hex nut spanner.
An unbelievably great value firesteel for the great outdoors.
