The Tortoise Gear Firefly is tailor-made to replace the toothpick in a Victorinox Swiss Army knife (SAK) or tool. A perfect EDC fire starter, the Firefly is a firesteel, which will produce sparks when struck against the back of a knife.

This pack contains three regular Firefly – For medium and large sized Swiss Army knives with 50 mm (slanted top) toothpicks.

  • Glow in the dark top.   
  • Custom sparking material twice as easy to spark as a typical firesteel / ferrocerium.
  • 140% stronger than typical firesteel / ferrocerium.
  • Soft sparking steel, so it is less brittle and can be easily used with any sharp edged stainless tool on the Swiss Army Knife. 
  • Comes in neon green-yellow glow and classic ivory glow.

    Brilliant back up ferro rod

    Posted by Kevin Hodgson on 16th Feb 2024

    A tiny backup ferro rod which is always at hand whenever you're carrying your victorinox SAK. Provided you check out the instruction and videos on how to correctly use it, this tiny ferro rod WILL light decent tinder like fatwood shavings. Use the back of the wood saw and pull the firefly towards you on the NARROW side. This technique is so good, I plan on using it with my normal ferro rods as well. And of course this is also an excellent backup for lighting gas stoves. I'm not sure I'd be happy to use the even smaller fire ant, but the firefly is surprisingly good.

    Don't fit rangergrip SAK

    Posted by Rob on 14th Feb 2024

    The first one I tried got stuck and the tip broke off. I had to cut a piece of the next one to make it fit. As getting it through customs cost me an extra 11 euros, I'm afraid I'm not happy with this purchase

    Great bit of kit.

    Great idea perfectly executed. Does the job and completes the SAK.

    Works well to cause a spark as long as you support the back of it whilst striking.

    Good but fragile

    Posted by Sharp Terry on 26th Feb 2023

    When I received these I tried to open the blister pack by pushing on the front to push the firefly’s through the cardboard at the back. Don’t do this! There was a crack as one of the strikers snapped in half. The instructions reveal that you need to only strike the thin sides to prevent the striker becoming loose in the housing as it wears away and you need to support it with a finger to prevent it snapping. I wish I had read that before I snapped mine! Sparks nicely and should be fine if you are careful.

    Tortoise gear firefly

    Posted by J GREENE on 24th Feb 2023

    Tried this out on the Tortoise tinder. Lit first time using the spine of the saw blade. It fits my Camper, Huntsman and Swiss Champ. Will not fit a Rangergrip but I knew this already. A worthwhile back-up ferro rod.
