Lava-Stick™ Ferro Rod
We called this ferrocerium rod the Lava-Stick™ Ferro Rod because, being softer than European ferro rods, when it is scraped with a striker it throws small pieces of hot molten metal, like lava, which allows you to ignite even marginal tinder. It measures a large 6” long x 0.5” in diameter, which will provide you with a long lasting fire starter.
It includes a paracord lanyard with a small carabiner so you can secure the Lava-Stick™ Ferro Rod to your equipment or a belt loop. It is attached to the Ferro rod using a split ring so it can be easily removed in the event you want to attach your own lanyard.
