What is a ferrocerium rod?
Ferro Rods, also known as Fire-Steels are one of the most popular means of fire-lighting by outdoor enthusiasts.
Unlike matches or lighters, Ferro Rods are extremely reliable, long-lasting, and completely water and wind-proof.
Ferro Rods are made using a blend of elements including cerium, lanthanum, iron, and magnesium. Ferro Rods work by striking the rod which removes small fragments of metal. These fragments produce hot sparks reaching temperatures of 3,000 °C due to a rapid oxidation process.
