Fantastic quality product! I'm a small female wondered if I could get a fire going. Used firestarters and got a spark on second try! Bought 2 in case I lose one! Heavy duty steel from what I have seen in stores. Bought one for each family member for Christmas! Love using it very easy to use!
I bought this ferro rod to replace the one that came with my MoraKniv which broke prematurely. After removing the black cover material, this thing sheds sparks like no body's business. As for the little metal multi use tool strikers, well I'm left handed so I don't think they're working for me. I switched paracord to the orange line, and am very pleased with the unit. The length of the rod and it's thickness should make for a long lasting, robust rod. I'm going to take care to try to evenly wear the surface so that I don't do what happened to the last rod I had. You are able to put a lot of pressure on the rod at the hilt, and the pressure decreases as you move to the tip. Thus the wear is heavier at the handle and less so at the end. This will result eventually in pre mature breakage of the rod. Perhaps brace the rod against something as you scrape it, or hold your scraping tool still, and draw the rod back. I find that technique sheds sparks in a better targeted manner.
Super beefy ferro rod and striker tool. Works really well with the spine of the Esee PR4. Should last a long time. Would recommend!
These bigfoot Bushcraft Rods are the Real Deal.... have Several
First time I used it I was very pleased. It worked awesome the first time!
Been getting these ads on my feed for months. I have been meaning to try them and see how they work. Ordered some recently and I have to say they exceeded my expectations. Broke the first one I tried down a bit and BAM first strike from the ferro rod
and you had a fire if you feed it.
I have ised this Ferro Rod only a handful of times so far and it throws sparks like lava! It is quickly becoming my go to Ferro Rod.
I do not have the opportunity to camp outdoors. Last winter I made the commitment that I would only use a ferro rod and natural tinder to start my fireplace and outdoor wood stove.
Your fire starter has made that increasingly easier. It's a great size and the striker is perfect. The additional orange paracord and striker are a nice extra touch to an already quality set.
Went camping last we, had a downpour that almost flooded our campsite. With most of the wood wet or damp, used Firestarter and had a fire going!!! So glad we had them!
These are the greatest fire starters ever!! I have to buy more because I keep sharing them!
Very well made and easy to use! Would definitely buy again
Very good quality, good strikers, and the orange paracord is a good add on. Price is good to. Love it.
Works well just as described.
Nice big chunk of fire steel rod. Honey I Roam!
These two plus three more ! Lanyard could be a little longer to go around your neck. Easy fix. Love the product very dependable.
A happy purchase for sure, I have a few other ferro rods, but I have to say this one is my favorite
Bought this as a gift to my son-in-law, he absolutely loved it. I could see the smile on his voice when he called to thank me.
This thing throws sparks like a flame thrower. Very impressed. Even though it is on the heavy side, it will definitely be in my pack.
I have used other products for fire starting. I have to say, I'm absolutely impressed at how easy these products make it to start a fire. Within a couple of strikes, the fire started catch the spark and you're good to go. The process is not that easy with other products. I found that what best works for me with these fires starters is to twist them back and forth and pull them apart, strike a ferro rod and you have fire. Great products. I love them so much I got the 200 pack of fire starters, several of the travel tins, and enough ferro rods to match my number of tins. I have one in all my vehicles, the RV, the garage, anywhere I may need them for camping, or for a survival situation. I am now a loyal customer. I will buy these products from here on out exclusively.
I scraped some of the coating off. Peeled and fluffed a half of a fire plug. Then scraped the rod twice for spark and had fire! It was just that easy!! Never fear of getting fire with a fire plug and ferro rod combination Bigfoot Bushcraft.
It exactly what I wanted when I bought it. Fits my shear great and is very nice quality
Sparklers on the fourth,and these fero rod both put out a shower of sparks. Have gotten a fire started with one strike. Very happy, with it.
Never used one before now and it was easy to follow instructions and even made a small fire with it. Almost as fast as using a lighter. The rod and striker are comfortable to work with and even my 4 yr old started a fire with it. Would recommend to everyone no matter skill level.
Bigfoot Bushcraft striker rod is fire! Solidly made with lots of life to be used in the woods. Love it’s rustic look and the massive amount of sparks created with each strike.
Much more spark than my other fero.. Great product.
Just recieved it after a looong wait. This is not on the company but the USPS.
Feels sturdy, Sparks well.
First impression we're. Ok that should last a lifetime. At first I wasn't a fan of the included striker having used similar items in the past that have been completed garbage. But after a few uses I can safely say that it is beyond functional and throws some serious sparks. I've used it on everything from cotton to roughed up grass and powdered wood shavings and has yet to fail in getting a fire going. I have recommended this to all of my friends and the survival group I'm involved in. Great job Bigfoot Bushcraft!!
Just as advertised. Works excellently for lighting my stove and building fires, regardless of conditions.
I cannot say enough good things about these products. The fire plugs work exactly as advertised and light with one strike. It does not get any easier than this. I recommend these things to everybody I know.
Great quality, fast shipping. No hassles. I only wish it was one to two inches longer. Otherwise it’s still great!
I am not practiced at using a ferro rod and steel but even I could get a shower of sparks with this ferro rod. Great product!
This is awsome.Makes my life easier.One less worry for me.Works great even on rainy days.
The BEST ferro rod I have ever used. The quality is second to none. Throws a lot of sparks, not like some of the "cheaper" ones you find at wally world. Get one !
The ferro rod is great. Fantastic Quality and heavy duty. Easy to use and puts out big sparks. Very pleased.
As a retired Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer,... I know having what you need in an emergency is a must,... I just received my order of fire plug, spark rod and travel tin and tested one of the plugs to see just how good they are,... after striking the spark rod twice, I had a fire that lasted over 4 1/2 minutes,... as a result, I just replaced my fire making stuff in my EDC pack,... If I ever NEED a fire, I now know that this will provide,... Thank You Bigfoot Bushcraft for your GREAT product.
Great stuff. Just what we needed.
Works just like the videos! Great product
Love it, works great. Will last me a long time.
Have you ever tried starting a fire with a magnesium stick, or BlastMatch? I have, and they are difficult to use and do not work well. This fire steel on the other hand is fantastic. I ordered the large 1/2 inch version and am very pleased with it. With a handful of dry grass I had flames in about 15 seconds. It puts out a large shower of hot sparks with minimal effort, and should last a VERY long time. Nothing to break or damage. It's simple and sturdy. Would definitely buy again. I keep mine in my EDC pack.
Best fire starter I've used
Good length/thickness. Throws great Sparks even with the included scraper. Not sure what the curved indent is for though.
Wonderful product from a great company!
Perfect for outdoorsmen.
Fantastic fire starter!

I've been through three other fire starters and the Bigfoot Bushcraft Ferro Rod is by far the most efficient and easy to use. Sure, my other emergency strikers can produce sparks but with lots and lots of effort. Not something that's good when you really need a fire and you're really tired.
Works like a charm!
Throws sparks like crazy
Solid. Best I've seen around.
Great product! Gives off a mighty spark that is super hot! I was able to ignite wood chips with it this afternoon. The wood handle on it is great. Feels really good in the hand allows a great grip for getting a ton of friction across the rod.
I've purchased numerous fire steels over the years, but not until this one did I have one that worked very well. With the others I could only throw sparks, but with this one I can place the rod directly on the tinder and scratch back and forth a couple of times and generate a nice shower of sparks directly on the tinder for a quick light.
My husband says this fire starter is the best he ever used and he has tried several others. It is light weight, easy to pack any place in your back pack or pocket very easy to use and starts a fire quickly anytime anywhere. Thanks for offering such a terrific product.
Always sparks and easy to use.
Don't start a forest fire
