Please feel free to email me though if there is something you are interested in and I can get back to you asap about its availability. Mike – [email protected]

Ferrocerium Rods are extremely useful Bushcraft and Wilderness tools. Ferrocerium Rods are a composite of rare earth metals and when scraped the shavings oxidize and reach temperatures of up to 3,000°C/5,430°F. This makes the Ferrocerium Rod very compatible with many natural tinder’s all over the world and it even works when wet.
Please note that buffalo horn is a very inconsistent material, cracks and markings inside the horn are normal from the buffalos general lifestyle. Personally I love the cracks and fissures in the horn or else its just plain black but obviously non of the cracks are capable of becoming a brake, most are superficial.
