The ESEE Knives Fire Steel is built from 1095 carbon steel and heat treated to be used as a fire making tool for use with true flint and charred material. The edges of the Fire Steel also work as a Ferrocerium (Ferro) rod striker, and the center divot is designed to be used as a bow drill socket. The Fire Steel comes packaged in a hinged-lid tin that can be used to make char cloth or other charred materials. Fire Steel measures 1.5" x 3.25" x 0.19" thick.

Versatile fire steel simply awesome
Eric J.
1) Best ferricerium rod STRIKER.
2) Produces molten sparks with flint or other sharp, hard metallic strikers.
3)Central "bow drill socket" is a third fire starting method. Hope to never need to try.

There are well written instructions, including how to use the enclosed tin container for charring cloth. This is a beautiful chunk of fire steel well worth the money. Hope this helps!
Not as pictured, but that's a good thing.

The picture on this site doesn't really do this little thing justice. First of all, it's a quarter-inch thick chunk of 1095 carbon steel. The picture here makes it look kinda small and thin, but it's not. When I first saw the picture, I thought it was about the size of a military dog tag, but in reality it's about the size of a bar of hotel soap. Second, it doesn't have the solid metal-gray finish in the picture. Instead, it has a natural oxidized patina that's very nice and gives it more of a rustic look. I tied a safety orange paracord lanyard on mine 'cause if I dropped this thing in the bush it would be hard to find. Very nice addition to my fire kit, and definitely a good thing to have if your knife has a traction coating and won't strike a ferro rod.
