As others have noted, product shipped has big, round, wooden handle. It is not the molded plastic handle shown in the photo. My guess is that wooden handles are older models. I was able to easily split and remove the wooden handle. Then, I drilled a small hole through the fire steel (keep the drill at a low speed to avoid sparks!) and attached a lanyard with a whip-finish knot. The result is a 16g, ultra-compact fire steel. The LMF steels are excellent and produce a very hot spark. I would give this a 5-star rating except for the bulky wooden handle.
