Ferrocerium Firesteel Rods

Great sparking fire-steels


For a detailed description of each of our options see our Sheath Options page.

One of the most important skills you must have in the wild or in a survival situation is the ability to build and maintain fire.  Ferrocerium rods (commonly known as firesteel or ferro rods) combined with a good steel knife, are a great way to always have the tools need to create fire with you.  Scraping the rod with a piece of hard steel, such as the back of your knife, will emit long lasting sparks of over 3000 degrees.

It is still recommended that you PRACTICE under fair weather conditions. Go into your backyard on a nice day and learn how to make your fire quickly. You don’t want to be at zero on your learning curve when you are freezing and soaking wet.  For tips on using your firesteel click here.

Our ferrocerium firesteel rods are 5/16″ diameter by 3.2″ long.  A KYDEX® band around the top and a shock cord loop to wrap around the sheath attachment will hold the firesteel securely in your sheath as it wears down.
