Ferrocerium Rod (so often called ferro rod), the small, simple, waterproof outdoor survival kit, one of the outdoor equipment or outdoor gear. A ferro rod is not a natural material and isn't flint (although you will often see a ferro rod called a firesteel, metal match or flint and steel - even though this is a completely different thing!).  A ferro rod is a complex blend of 20 different metals alloyed together then extrude into various diameter of rod.  Ferro rods are a complex blend -with consist of approximately 20% iron content- this is where the ferro part of the word ferrocerium comes from - (Fe), with trace amounts of other metallic elements such as zinc (Zn), magnesium (Mg), cerium - this is where the cerium part of the word ferrocerium comes from - (Ce), lanthanum (La), neodymium (Nd) along with minute traces amounts of other rare earth metal elements.

Ferrocerium rod is made from Iron, Magnesium and mostly of an alloy of rare earth metals called mischmetal with an excellent pyrophoric percentage :  98%min. The required chemical composition:   
Mischmetal              76%MIN.
Fe (Ferro or Iron)     18 ~ 21%
Mg ( Magnesium )    1.5 ~ 2.5%
Hardness :               90 ~ 170 HB
Surface   : black lacquer coated, natural grey, colored
Size available :   3/8" (9.525mm) Diameter  x  5mm up to 1000mm Length.

Application : It is used as the firestarters or fire starter in scouting and camping, sparking entertainment, clockwork toys, strikers for welding torches, wildness rescue, etc., it is the best compact firestarter we can easily use, plus its dependability,made it a favorite of hikers, survival experts, hunters, fishermen and campers. It works equally well when wet or dry. Swedish Fire Steel has even found its way into cabins and backyards as a fool-proof way to light stoves and gas-barbecues.

Operation :  When the rod is scraped with a steel edge or the spine of a knife, particles or shavings are scraped off and ignited by the friction giving a shower of hot sparks.  These burning particles can, in turn, ignite your tinder, the best tinders for ferro rod include:

  • Cotton wool (preferably soaked in Vaseline)
  • Birch bark
  • Pine Fatwood chips/ fatwood dust (also known as Maya wood sticks or Maya rods)
  • Char cloth
  • Tinder fungus
  • Wire wool
  • Dried grasses/natural fibers/natural fluff material (for example, Old Man's Beard)
  • Paper
  • Magnesium chips, magnesium powder (you can get a ferro rod embedded in a magnesium block which makes a spectacular high-temperature flash fire!)

Some find that the hard part to using a ferro rod is not generating the sparks, but getting them to land on the tinder and not go all over the place (watch out when using a ferro rod around synthetic materials such as waterproof jackets, tents of basha sheets - the sparks can easily burn holes through these materials).  The best way to get the sparks to land in the right place and minimize the sparks that land in the wrong place, have plenty of tinder and make a nest for the ferro rod.  Place the tip of the rod in the middle of the tinder and scrape the metal edge down firmly along the rod. If you have less tinder, do the same and make a smaller nest of the tinder and place the tip of the rod in the middle of it.  However, this time, instead of moving the scraper down the rod, pull the rod up against the scraper.  This is harder to pull off successfully but when you perfect the technique it does tend to focus the sparks better. 

Corrosion can be a bit of a problem with ferro rods - especially in hot, humid climates or where the ferro rod is kept close to the skin.  A quick and easy solution to this is to paint the rod with nail polish - clear if you want it to look neutral or a more "exciting" color (such as red color) if you want to make it easier to find if you drop it outdoors!  The surface coating doesn't affect the performance of the ferro rod as far as the amount of sparks it generates but you do have to keep on applying the nail polish though. Suggest getting two rods, one to play with and one to keep in the survival kit, one is bigger diameter and another is smaller diameter to save your money.

As well as keeping an eye on your rods for corrosion, take care not to drop them onto hard ground as they can break (although they can still be used).

You do need to remember to practice with your ferro rod before you need to rely on it!

You can get a bare rod or ferrocerium blanks and roll some tape on as a handle, that will give you twice as much ferro to work with and may save a little room as well. You simply pull your knife blade or striker slowly and firmly down the length of the ferrocerium rod, and sparks easily ignite a stove, barbecue, paper, dry grass bark, tinder, this iron rod is water resistant, and its 3000° C spark works well even when conditions are wet, cold, and less than optimal. this ferro cerium flint fire starter is a favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen, backpackers, campers and boy scouts, etc.,  Also the ferrocerium rod can be inserted into one side of Magnesium block to build a Magnesium Ferrocerium Firestarter, etc.,
