Add-on for sheath orders: If ordering with a sheath, the firesteel will be shipped with the sheath when it is built. If you want the firesteel shipped immediately, please order separately.
Custom Firesteel handle machined from Delrin, an extremely durable and tough plastic. Each handle is precisely turned on a metal lathe, and fitted with a metal lanyard stud that threads into the handle. This handle features a deep finger groove that gives you alot of grip while still keeping the whole firesteel slim and compact. The ferro rod is of the softer "Misch Metal" type, the same as what BensBackwoods.com sells.
There are two choices of lanyard studs. The Shock cord lanyard for securing to firesteel loops on sheaths, or the keyring for attaching a lanyard for pocket carry. You can select one, or both and have the ability to swap between the two.
Ferro rods are replaceable with this handle as well. Simply remove the lanyard stud and tap out the old rod with a small punch. Then just tap the new rod into the handle and reinstall the lanyard stud.

I have three of these in 3/8. They throw a spark very well and are long and think enough to hold onto with my large hands. The the elastic cord is great to keep them on the sheath and to have a little extra to hold onto. I even contacted Brian one day asking if I could purchase the elastic cord for the tops Fire starter that I have piggy backed to a sheath for another knife and Brian sent it to me free. Great to know I have a fire starter on hand if the situation calls for it. Sagewood makes great products and has the best customer service.
Well with adding to a superb custom sheath.
Excellent quality firesteel, I would definately buy another.
Something to have in your backpack or bag always.
Looks great on my sheath and works great I would definitely order another one when this one done
Solid construction and feel. I change out the black cord with orange or blue so it is easier to find when dropped.
I own several and carry the on numerous Sagewood sheaths. I spend a great deal of time in the boonies all over the world. I trust my life to these fire starters.
