Firesteels, also known as ferrocerium rods or ferro rods, are a critical tool in the bushcrafter's arsenal. The most dependable and long-lasting means of creating a fire, the firesteel can be scraped with the spine of a knife or a dedicated striker, creating a shower of sparks to ignite tinder. They are sized for a good fit in our sheaths' firesteel loops.
We thread our rods by hand so that they can be replaceable. Two or three rods should last most avid bushcrafters a lifetime. For a bushcraft or survival instructor, a few more than that may be recommended.
These are handmade by Cody's father, Ed, who also makes the Adventure Sworn bucksaws.
