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!
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.
Absolutely hands down best ferro rods around !!
Just what I was looking for. Small enough to carry on a key ring with the small scraper in your pocket but still big enough to get a firm hold and throws enough spark to get the job done. Obviously won't throw a shower of sparks like the 7" rod in my fire kit but in an overnight stranded situation it will save a life.
