This piggyback Kydex carrier is hand-made. It holds the TOPS ferrocerium fire steel. The top hole is pre-made and the second hole is left for you to make. This way it will fit your own sheath. The piggyback comes with two mounting screws, and fits most manufacturer's Kydex sheaths. The piggyback setup holds close to the body of the sheath. The firestarter can be pulled out for use fairly easily. This is an unique innovation for guys who like piggybacking their gear. ...And most of all...if you’re in an emergency situation....you'll be glad you have it available.

This TOPS Knives Firesteel is durable and will last up to 12,000 strikes.
It produces a 4,000 - 5,500 degree spark and is designed to work in adverse conditions even when wet.
