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. When used properly, the Fire Stick will produce a shower of sparks which will light your tinder of choice with ease.

Employing the same design and function as our standard Fire Sticks, these rods differ in that they are sold without handles, allowing you to manufacture your own. Antler and curly birch are firm favourites for making handles out of, but there's no reason not to venture out and try different materials; indeed, as you can see on the Woodlore Blog, some customers have even made fire stick handles from Gumnuts! Ideal for those who are new to woodworking, and a great gift to anyone interested in getting hands-on with their bushcraft kit.

  As expected, this is a quality product. Throws out a good shower of sparks (unlike some others i have used). I Mounted it on a Reindeer antler for my good lady and she loves it.

  I've been searching for a decent blank Ferro rod for a while now. Reading reviews and looking for feedback from various forums but nothing was ticking all the boxes. I have looked at various alternatives available from major 'Outdoor' shops but I was always disappointed with the performance of these rods. What I wanted was something to match the performance of my first Ferro rod which I purchased some 11 years ago on the recommendation of one of Ray's first instructors while I was on a course in the Lake District. I don't know why I didn't come here in the first place given the history of my old rod but I am glad I have now. This rod is exactly the same as my old one and generates the same intense shower of sparks for only a small amount of effort. The rod is now sporting a yew handle and I am even considering purchasing a few more of these for my Cub Scout group as they are far superior to anything else I have seen.

  This fire stick is a great tool, lots of hot sparks. I've purchased the rod version so I can have a go at personalising a handle.

  Looking forward to making a handle for this robust fire rod.

  I set this fire steel in a piece of antler. Using my Morakniv Companion MG knife the shower of sparks from one swipe lit my tinder. This is now my preferred method of fire lighting. It was especially effective on damp and wet days. My other fire steels have gone in the bin.

  Arrived in good time even during the Christmas mayhem. Not much to say other than it's perfect. Thank you.

  IMHO this is the best fire stick there is, get a six sided striker and you have a great fire set.

  Does as described. I was pleased I bought one without a handle. I got the fire stick cheaper and made a handle myself. Perfect.

  I glued it in a peace of Birch with epoxy glue. It is thicker than most other fire sticks. It works very good if the back of the knife blade is sharp-edged and not rounded. Or with an other peace of steel witch has an edge.
