Fire Stick (Click for full size)

The humble Fire Stick is, without a doubt, one of the most fundamental and reliable pieces of Bushcraft equipment available. As used by Ray Mears and the entire Woodlore team for well over a decade, the Fire Stick (or ferrocerium rod, as it is also known) is favoured in Bushcraft and survival situations due to the fact that it can be used even when wet, and can be gripped easily when your hands are cold. When used properly, the Fire Stick will produce a shower of sparks which will light your tinder of choice with ease.

Our Fire Sticks come fitted with a sturdy, moulded plastic handle which is subtly embossed with the Ray Mears 'snowshoe' logo. A hole in the handle allows you to securely fasten your Fire Stick to your belt or knife sheath via a lanyard or length of para cord.

The Fire Stick performs best when used against the back of a knife, but also comes fitted with its own striker.

Details:

  • Rod length: 65 mm
  • Total length: 95 mm
  • Weight: 50 g
  • Moulded plastic handle
  • Striker included
  • Exclusive to Woodlore

An excellent piece of kit.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Alec Gibson on 26th August, 2014
Fantastic bit of kit. Produces consistent sparks every time.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Sam Hilton on 16th August, 2014
This is a fine tool, plenty of hot sparks. Obviously a great deal of thought has gone into its construction.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer David Felkins on 11th August, 2014
Think a fire stick is a fire stick... Wrong! Tried others, but this one is the best quality for getting the best sparks for when you need fire the most.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Mr Andrew Balasco on 2nd August, 2014
Astonishing delivery speed! Superb product!
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Sanjay Lal on 31st July, 2014
I'm hoping being a Ray Mears item, this will help my fire lighting skills. Great size, plenty of meat on the stick so it won't wear out too quick.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Paul Fretwell on 6th July, 2014
By far the best I have used! Instead of creating a shower of small sparks which burn out quickly it can be struck to produce a single, large mass hot spark. Very useful when things are a little damp.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Rory Duncan on 22nd June, 2014
Great product, fits very nicely in the hand and produces excellent sparks
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Christopher Obrien on 12th June, 2014
Excellent product, a must have of anyone in the woods/wilderness.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Yaroslav Stets on 17th May, 2014
This fire stick is very effective in bad weather.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer I M Hewson on 26th February, 2014
One of the best on the market. Perfect size for easy carry, packs a lot of performance. I always have at least one on me. Because you never know :)
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Silverfox on 20th February, 2014
This is a good, thick fire stick; not one of those skinny ones you often see. Produces a huge shower of white hot sparks - very pleased.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Brian Jones on 11th February, 2014
Great little fire stick - sends out a massive shower of sparks and burning shards, especially when used with the back of a knife. My 7 year-old (who doesn't have great hand strength due to mild CP) was chuffed to bits when he started a fire with only a couple of attempts. The supplied striker works fine but better results are achieved with a knife. Very happy with my puurchase.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer David McK. on 8th February, 2014
Having used other fire sticks, this one is the bee's knees. First time I used it, it gave a shower of sparks that kept burning for a short time after struck and it lit the tinder first time every time. Fantastic product and super quick delivery, as always. Thank you Woodlore.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Joseph Woodcock on 6th February, 2014
Good sparks and a handy size.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Anthony Cahill on 2nd December, 2013
Bought as a present for an 11 year-old on a birthday trip to Epping Forest. Lit first time on a windy, drizzly day and all his friends wanted to have a go. Thank you, Woodlore!
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Catherine on 4th October, 2013
Great piece of kit. Simple and effective - perfect!
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Andrew Elliott on 30th September, 2013
A very well made product. The firestick stays permanently in my backpack so I'll never be without warmth. Thanks Woodlore, great item.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Sorrel Holmes on 5th June, 2013
A very good item and I'm very impressed with all the sparks!
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Mr J Sheppard on 15th May, 2013
Simple effective tool that every camper or bushwalker should have in their kit bag. Takes up bugger all space and the quality of the spark is excellent for traditional / survival fire starting. I would recommend having char cloth or charred fungus in your kit with any spark implement to help catch the spark as (if you are like me) I am still not as good as Ray yet :-)
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Alexander Withers on 9th May, 2013
Just as you'd expect. Basic but essential item that comes in handy.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Matthew Bailey on 25th March, 2013
Like everything else the woodlore sells.......it's been tested and proven. High quality rod. It goes with me every time I head out into the wilds of America's forests. Thank you Woodlore!! Stephen Lewis, Ohio, U.S.A.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Stephen Lewis on 6th August, 2012
This is my first encounter with fire sticks, but they work well. If you haven't used these before they take a bit of practice to get right. I found them to respond better to my f1 as opposed to the striker they come with but anything will work to some degree.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Dan on 6th August, 2012
Have only used this a couple of times but happy with the amount of sparks it produces and the fact that it is lightweight.... can tell it's really well made and will last a long time.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Scott Young on 24th July, 2012
Fire Stick - GREAT bit of kit, it's a must have. Worked 1st time, ordered it on Thursday and on Friday I was in the garden making Fires. Thanks.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer James Whittingham on 14th July, 2012
The RM firesteel gets a double thumbs up from me!
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Paul Malandain on 13th July, 2012
I have used fire sticks in the past whilst hunting and them compared to Ray Mears fire stick his one is in a league of its own, with its own striker it produces a huge amount of sparks. Just cant wait to use it and once again thanks woodlore you guys are a real credit to yourselves and Ray, excellent service.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Geoff Brinsden on 10th June, 2011
This is packed away as a spare as we were given one on the Introduction to Bushcraft course. On Birch bark shavings and peelings it worked a treat. Easy to use once the coating is scraped away.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Richard Ashton on 27th April, 2011
A Brilliant fire stick the best in its class what more could you ask for?
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer George Craggs on 11th April, 2011
great value for the money
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer martin.c.foley on 24th September, 2010
I'm impressed with this, I have bought other firesticks in the past but this outclasses them. It's thicker, the sparks are better and the price is amazing.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Nation Harris on 3rd September, 2010
This bit of kit is a must-have; striking with the back of your knife or the provided striker gives off a huge shower of sparks that will easily ignite your tinder.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Brian Lees on 1st June, 2010
A robust Fire Stick producing a shower of sparks.
Ray Mears Fire Stick reviewed by customer Stuart Whiting on 9th March, 2010
I have bought many of these now (lost a few too) and they are great. Once you learn how to light a fire with a spark you will not use matches again. I don't even take matches with me now, nor does my grandson. They last ages too.
