... in small crevices in your pack, pocket, neck pouch, knife sheath, etc.
I've put together fire making kit projects for my grandson's boy scout troop. The scouts make a loop for the end of the fire steel, a lanyard to connect a super scraper, and a soda straw full of cotton ball- petroleum jelly tinder. This all wraps up in a small package that can be tucked into a very small space.
It doesn't take long for the scouts to get the hang of pulling the steel away from the scraper so they don't knock over their fire lay. They have also learned how to light a candle with sparks from their fire steels.
This is my fourth 10 rod order. As more new scouts are added to the troop, more fire kits are needed.
This little fire steel is a mighty spark maker! Received my order in less than a 4 day turn around which is great!

I always purchase all the ferro and magnesium rods I use, or give as gifts, from from FireSteel (and have for many years). I will say that I can't think I've every used a ferro rod that has thrown more hot sparks per strike, or been more enjoyable to use or teach others with, than these.
However, high quality ferrocerium and magnesium rods are only a *part* of what you get when you deal with FireSteel. I don't think I have ever received such personal, first-class customer service from any other company I've ever dealt with, and THAT is the reason that keeps me coming back!! Thank you!

I bought these to throw in my backpacking firekit with some vaseline coated cotton balls and other tinder. After trying them out in the yard on the cotton balls, I had a lot of confidence in them. Usually it only took one throw of a shower of sparks to light. These are light and work extremely well. They have made me revamp my fire kit, by making them my primary ignition source. I put the rod and a coated cotton ball underwater, and they still lit immediately. Thanks for the great product!

There are so many ferro rods out there that its hard to tell what you'll get until to test it out and if its no good its too late. These rods worked great and lived up to the good reviews here and on the net.

The back of the blade on my Sog access card 2.0 knife strikes this ferro rod extremely well. So I made a thin homemade leather sheath to put both the knife and ferro rod into and then I put them into my wallet.
So now I have a great very sharp back up knife to be able to make feather stick fire tender with and a great ferro rod to be able to make a fire with those feather sticks and these two little awesome life saving tools are always with me in my Bosca double ID twelve pocket wallet.
It sure is nice to always be able to make an emergency or non-emergency fire any where I go.

I made wood handles for these fire steels and gave them out as gifts. All my friends who use them can light their fires in one try. Best fire steels you can buy!

I bought 3 of the Ranger FireSteel Rods to attach to my Mora Knife sheaths using Ranger Bands. They are small and lightweight but put out lots of sparks. Glad I got them.

With good tinder and know how you can start a fire easily with these steels. I always have one in my kit while in the bush.

Just like to keep one of these in my pocket or wallet. Never know when you're going to need a shower of sparks for a fire in a hurry.
