This Ferro Rod is one of the best fire starters on the market.  The large 6" x 1/2"Ferro Rod is easy to handle, and throws off large sparks. 

Ferrocerium is a man-made metallic material that produces hot sparks at temperatures of about 1,650 °C (3,000 °F) when scraped against a rough surface (pyrophoricity), such as ridged steel. Many high carbon steels will create a spark but the ferro rod is the most widely used fire making tool. These sparks can be used to catch all kinds of tinder sources on fire. This is the most bomb-proof modern fire making tool you can bring with you to create fire.

In extreme conditions, the dexterity in your hands could be detrimental, and gross motor movement skills are diminished.  In some cases, individuals couldn't even spark a lighter, but the simple scraping motion can easily be accomplished in almost every survival situation.  Fire is one of the most important bushcraft skills.

 

NOTE: This ferro rod does not come with a lanyard, but does have a machined hole in one end for compatibility for a lanyard.

Excellent Product

I am just a beginner in bushcraft, but this ferro-rod is so easy to use, I had a fire going in just ten minutes, my first time out. The size makes it easy to handle, and it should last a very long time.
