    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!

    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
