Texas Bushcraft

Overcome the forces of nature

When you find yourself stranded with nightfall approaching, you can't trust your well-being to matches or a cigarette lighter with limited fuel. The Texas Bushcraft Ferrocerium Rod ensures that you always have a reliable heat source at your fingertips. This man-made fire steel produces sparks in excess of 5000 F degrees, igniting tinder and starting a fire so you can alert rescue crews to your whereabouts, stay warm as temperatures fall, and maybe even cook wild game to sustain you.

No climate is too harsh

Unlike butane lighters that are hampered by wind, or matches that can become wet and unusable, ferro rods are impervious to weather, showering sparks over a pile of tinder in rain or gale-force winds. Capable of more than 15,000 strikes, our fire starter will see you through countless camping and hiking excursions, or carry you through the aftermath of a natural disaster as part of your prepper supplies. Small and compact, it goes virtually anywhere in your pocket, hiking gear or camping equipment.

All the tools for your survival

Each ferro rod boasts a sturdy wooden handle which has 48" of heavy-duty paracord braided through it. Attached to the paracord is a multifunctional survival tool made of hardened steel. It also measures, opens bottles, turns hex nuts and helps you map-out your return to civilization. With a hard-wearing black powder coating, it endures the rigors of the outdoors without rusting or corroding.

For a fire starter you can count on when the going gets tough, add a Texas Bushcraft Ferro Rod to your camping supplies and survival gear today.

High value ferro rod

Very impressive ferro rod!
It is made of the softer variety of ferro rod material so it throws major amounts of sparks, but won't last as long.
The striker has a very sharp, 90 degree edge that helps with spark generation.
Wood handle is secure and comfortable.
If you can't start a fire with this, there's something else wrong with your system.
High quality, low price.

Multi-purpose fire starter

Sure, one could carry a lighter when venturing out into the wilderness. But lighters often fail. Unlike ferro rods such as this one from Texas Bushcraft, they're not wind resistant or water resistant. And you never know if they have enough fuel inside, and may need to pack fuel along with you. They also have moving parts that can break or corrode. This type of fire starter is essential to any type of adventure kit, whether hunting, hiking, or camping. It will even throw plenty of sparks after it's wet. Hot. It's virtually failproof.

If waterproof matches or a lighter is more your thing, this makes for a guaranteed backup. It even has a handy bottle opener, map scale, wrench and scraper, and useful paracord that can serve a multitude of uses as well as hanging off your gear for easy access. The size is very compact and packable.

The wood handle is easy to manage. My husband found this comfortable to use, and so did I after he taught me how to strike it — very easy too.

The price is affordable, and looks good enough for gifting to your outdoor enthusiast friends too.

Great survival tool!

This is a great fire striker with well-thought-out multiple functions - a ruler, a hex key, a bottle opener, a tinder scraper. It comes on a paracord tether that is easy to clip on a carabiner. Comfortable grip, great function. Highly recommended for wilderness outings, or for an emergency pack.
