Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Just wanted to post about this just in-case anyone else had seen them and was wondering how well they worked. I backed the Tortoise Gear Fireflys, and finally got mine. Nice little firesteel, looks like they really did put more effort into it than just getting some little baby steels molded. Obviously won't last forever, they are pretty little, but as a slick little backup being handy for lighting that odd BBQ or in a stash-kit, I can see them doing pretty well. I mean, you have a knife, you can make a toothpick right? They do chuck sparks like a hot-damn, though they won't be on par with a gob-spark or even a big LMF, but to get a cotton ball going, more than enough. Add a little capsule with a couple tinder-quick to a Huntsman or a trekker, and you have a pretty ready fire-kit. In fact, you could get the mini-size and if flying in Canada, you now have a flight legal survival kit! The only thing I don't know about is how susceptible they are going to be to corrosion. I'm a little concerned about every-day pocket carry because its going to be in contact with that aluminum liner, and so that might cause a problem in a high sweat environment. But for that backpack knife, or on a keyring, might be worth looking at.
