Ray Mears Fire Stick with Presentation Box


Weight: 96 g         26 reviews
The humble Fire Stick is, without a doubt, one of the most fundamental and reliable pieces of Bushcraft equipment available. This particular version comes with its own sturdy presentation box, making it ideal as a gift. 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.

  Delivery fantastic - ordered at 1pm delivered the next morning. The stick itself is by far the best I have used unfortunately the striker is poor: it needs a notch in it or a better edge to make this an outstanding piece of kit. I have filed a semi circle in to the striker creating more points of contact and now it creates much better sparks. Biggest sparks from any striker I have used and I have used it in utterly foul weather. So buy it but be prepared to change the striker hence 4 stars.
