    Below are a bunch of ferro rods I've turned over the past week. The rods are 5/16" thick with approximately
    3 1/4" of usable rod. Handles are approximately 2 3/4" long, most approximately 3/4" thick at the top.

    They come with paracord loops that have a scraper/striker made of high speed tool steel (cut from unused planer blades).
    DSC00083.JPG
    Given the hole pattern, scraper/strikers are a minimum of 1 1/2" long with some closer to 2 1/2" long. All throw molten globs of sparks!
    Along with choosing your rod, now you can choose your paracord color as well!

    Top to bottom:
    Lava
    Rattlesnake
    Gator Bait
    Digi-Cam


    Each wood is labeled. Each rod is numbered. Select your wood/number, select your paracord. Each rod set runs $23 shipped. Once you choose your rod or rods, message me with your choices and your email address. I will send you a PayPal invoice for payment. If you prefer, I do accept money orders. Contact me and we'll get it in the works.

    Now for the woods...

    That work is too beautiful for me to use and abuse. But I always enjoy looking at them.

    I could make you a really ugly one... :4: I do have some commercial laminate material (see green mountain camo at far right of last pic) in several color patterns that are more "utilitarian" in appearance. I hope to get some of them turned in the next couple of weeks.

    I am the poster child for this category.
    I’m too much of a brute for nice expensive gear but trust me, you’ll not regret having this piece of kit.

    Like many of us on here I have many ferro rods from several manufacturers. My favorite is a cherry burl I bought from @ozarkhunter a couple of years ago. Handle looks great, and is still tight, the striker is very good and this thing throws excellent sparks. Everyone needs at least one of these.

    I gave the last one I bought to a new bushcrafter... sigh...

    I will take in 1 & 2 & 3 in osage with neon yellow black x lanyards, longer strikers would be good too.

    Thanks

    Just wanted to say that I came home after a trip and saw the ferro rod I ordered waiting for me. Tested it out at home using it to start newspaper on fire for my charcoal chimney starter. It worked great! The quality and craftsmanship was great. Will definitely look to order some more for gifts in the future.

    Buy with confidence friends. These ferro rods are top notch, throw a shower of sparks and look first rate! Very nice product @ozarkhunter and thank you for being kind enough to make one to match my knife!

    I got my ferro rod and I like the packing material of the walnut shavings, very bushcraft like. The craftsanship is really nice and when I showed it to my wife she wanted to try it but then seeing how nice it looked as she says "oh do you want to keep it nice and not use it" I told her no I bought it to use it so I showed her how to scrape off the black part on the ferro rod and on the first three strikes she saw how many sparks it put out and she said "nope not in the house".

    Tonight I tried the ferro rod along with two others on the walnut shavings

    20180801_210048.jpg
    Top to bottom is
    Walnut shavings
    SAK Firefly
    Mora Light My Fire (LMF)
    Ozarkhunters Ferro Rod

    First up was the Ozarkhunters ferro rod first strike I got embers, second strike I got more embers, third strike it was flame on. I liked how much the sparks really last and dance around.

    Second up was the Mora LMF I'm very surprised to say I could not get any embers or flame with the Mora LMF.

    Third up was my Swiss Army Knife Firefly and after several tries approximately 8 to 10 I got flame on.

    I gave the LMF another try, I fluffed the walnut shavings and no matter what I did I could not get embers or flame with the Mora LMF. I notice that the sparks from the more LMF seem to be short and quick reminding me of a sparkler, not long lasting like the Ozarkhunters Ferro rod and the Firefly.

    Thanks for taking a look and

    GOD Bless you and your family

    Kenneth
