Get your firesteel rods now! The cost of firesteels has more than doubled in the last year because the price of rare earth metals is sky rocketing! We will still offer them at this low price while supplies last.
This listing is for one blank flintsteel rod 3/8 in x 4 in.
This size of flintsteel is perfect for extended trips, long term heavy use, and larger survival kits. It will last for many hundreds of thousands of strikes. These flintsteels are so big you can use them to shave off pieces for tinder and then ignite it reducing the need for bringing along other types of tinder.
There is a reason why flintsteel is so popular, it is the best fail-safe fire starting device on earth! In fact, most reliable cigarette lighters incorporate a miniature flintsteel as their spark generator.
These rods are made from pure, solid sparking material like the small rods found mounted on the top of the popular magnesium-striker bars. You may have seen them being used in shows like Man VS. Wild with Bear Grylls or Survivor Man with Less Stroud.
There are a few different kinds of flintsteels out there (including some garbage) but these throw the biggest, hottest, and longest lasting sparks of any firesteel rod I've ever seen, these are the real deal. Our flintsteel rods have a custom composition that is easy to strike with almost any striker and still throws huge, hot sparks. If you ever get in a stranded situation you would be very glad to have one of these.
These work perfectly for starting camp fires, stoves, and impressing people with huge showers of sparks.
- This rod will work just as well after being completely submerged in water and it can be used in the rain and wind. Great for camping, survival activities, scouts, and other outdoor fun. Excellent for practicing on different types of tinder and different conditions. If the time comes to use a smaller flint rod you will be ready.
Use caution when striking with this rod as the sparks that come off are very hot! By purchasing this rod you are agreeing that the seller is not liable for any injury or property damage acquired from use of this product.
