    Great ferro rod

    Posted by Gary on 30th Mar 2019

    Great ferro rod, it is a little slim although it is a good quality ferro rod and is inexpensive. I have big hands and had no difficulty using this, it will go straight into my tinder storage box. The striker is also heavy duty good quality metal. Overall 5 stars i can not find any faults

    Wouldnt recommend

    Very slim, not sure why Schrade called this "Large". Striker was terrible, threw little to no sparks, and the steel tge striker was made of was so soft, the edges showed signs of wear after a couple strikes.

    Very decent

    Very decent and throws sparks well, could be a bit bigger and maybe have a better finish on the handle but it works well and a ferro rod is the cornerstone of any good fire kit so its worth buying

    And another thing...

    Posted by Adrian on 31st Oct 2016

    and the round handle seems to be a simple but good feature versus many other rod's with a thumb groove in that you can easily strike from any side preventing wearing a single groove down just one side. I've used the thumb shaped handle ones and you do tend to strike in one position and it does wear a groove presumably wearing out the rod sooner than this design...just a thought...

    Very acceptable

    Good value. Decent size and the striker works well. I'm a novice and found I could start fires just using dry birch bark after about 3 or 4 strikes so for me it passes the test. Good size as it's chunky enough to get a good grip and strike and still fit in tins/pocket/pouches. I replaced the black cord with some hi-viz yellow as first time I put it down I lost it, briefly. .. I assume the rod's for £14 are better in some way but for the money this seems a good option.

    Lot of bang for your buck.

    Posted by Leigh on 9th Jan 2016

    These rods are made by a third party for Schrade. Which is actually good news because I have it's little Brother. It's a mischmetal rod rather than ferrocenium so it is much more resistant to damp. The striker is made by Schrade and it's easily the best OTB striker on the market. Frankly I eas expecting the usual afterthought of a striker so I am well pleased. Couple more are going in my next order methinks.

    OK.

    Posted by DoomDealer on 7th Aug 2015

    It does what it says on the tin. For occasional camping or outdoor activities, it's fine; a no-brainer at this price. The more serious survivalist or outdoor enthusiast would probably want to look elsewhere (in fact, those people probably wouldn't consider this firesteel in the first place). OK for what it is, and it certainly does the job, but there are much better ones out there. A word of warning: the description "large" is a bit confusing here - it's actually pretty small and slim. If Schrade considers this to be a "large" one, then I'd love to see their small versions.

    A great value first ferro rod

    Posted by Alan on 12th Dec 2014

    A great value first ferro rod. Slim so easily packs. I've found that a multi-tool awl or can-opener edge to be a more effective striker for occasional use. Much easier than getting tangled up with the supplied striker on a cord.
