I picked up a few rods, scrapers and magnesium bars to build some fire making kits to go in my hunting and hiking packs. I had never used fire steel previously but decided to give them a try after once again being failed by a lighter. I followed the instructions and tried lighting a cotton ball doused in vaseline. To my shock it lit first try and burned for quite some time. Didn’t even use the magnesium. I am very impressed with quality of the sparks these rods throw as well as the product in general. I may well buy some more as gifts for a few hunting friends. Great product!
This is my first real ferro rod, and I love it! I am glad I didn't get any shorter than the 3 inch, as I may have a hard time using it. 4 inch would not have fit in my fire tin. I'm also glad I got a hole in it for my lanyard. I like this so much, I am getting my two adult sons one for Christmas!
I should have paid more attention, I meant to order a 4"x1/2" rod. I am getting a bit jaded having been exposed to so many strikers over the years. The current rage is for the #2 or medium rod as it has a higher mag. content. That is particular true with the Leberlen striker. It definitely produces sparks that burn longer. I notice that Going Gear is now advertising it's strikers as mischrods(#2) Dave Canterbury has a video about mischrods. Over twenty years ago, I cut my teeth(so to speak) on mischrods. Suddenly mischrods went away and on the #1 rods were available. It's all very confusing. Anyway I like the #2 rods. There aren't too many good scrapers around. DMashburn
Anxious to put handles on these. They spark like crazy!
If you are looking for a dependable fire starter you need to look no further. These firesteels are amazing.
Great gifts for family and friends!
I’ve developed the Pivot Locking Kydex firesteel holder and these are for the Kydex customers I make Sheaths for. I wouldn’t buy my ferro rods at any other place but firesteel.com. It started with the 1/2” X6” rod I bought 4 years ago and I think they’re perfect.
It takes a much sharper edge to scrape off sparks than what I am used to. This implies it's a much harder steel. From what I have read, a harder steel is easier to get sparks on a short scrape from the end. I did not find this to be true with this steel. So at this time, i am not impressed.
Great size for your pocket or pack. Throws hot sparks like crazy.
