    They only take PayPal, don't they?

    Thanks for the heads up. I got the 5/16"x4" because I like them a little longer. Figured 3 for $7 wasn't too bad.

    I use a drawstring system to secure my army steels, I plan on doing the same.. At the end of the day though, I'm not a big fan of keeping all my gear on my sheath. I prefer having a dedicated fire kit.

    Wow, you got better feed back than I did. Yes Paypal only. I had no issues and got them in 3 weeks. They are a great buy.

    Thanks for the look. I've been meaning to pick up some blanks, I've got a deer antler shed to use for handles. Everyone has good experience with these, i.e. spark well?

    Btw,

    just wanted to thank xj35s for the original tip that I happen to catch.

    To answer your question, yes these work very well according to him. They are a bit softer so they shower molten fire.

    If your concerned about them not fitting an ''army'' version firesteel holder.. Just use a security strap like a drawstring which I do anyway. After all, the army steels don't stay that size forever anyways

    Last one I got only took 1 week. The one before that 11 days. So generally at most 2 weeks for me.Might just do a quick video atleast showing how they spark later on
