    Default Two firesteel blanks (army size) for $5.

    Saw this in another thread,

    it went a bit unnoticed. But I jumped on it as its the best deal on these I've seen. I got 6 for $15, and free shipping. When I did, another faster shipping option popped up for free, make sure to check the box. I don't know if its available for one order or if it was thrown in because I bought 3 sets.

    These are softer, and shower fire. Big thanks to the original poster for the tip!

    You can also get 8 of them for $18 with free shipping:

    That's $2.25 a piece! I missed this when buying mine. So for a little more than one light my fire army steel, why not have 8?

    Seems like a great deal. The army rods are 3/8 inch, these say 5/16. I only mention it since they might be loose in some knife sheath loops designed for the larger size. Thanks for posting the link.

    FYI....those come straight from Shenzhen, China so it will take some time to get to you and they can be stopped by customs. You also might get charged a foreign country fee by your bank.
