Large Ferrocerium Rod: Handle Requests



I often receive emails requesting handles made from alternative materials to Buffalo Horn and Antler. I can turn and produce handles from many materials including any type of stabilized wood or even synthetic materials. If you would like to put in a request for a specific material or design then you can email me at and I can let you know if I can get hold of the material for you and what the price will be.

General Information 

A 13mm wide by 130mm long Ferrocerium Rod with leather sheath and locking cord. Ferrocerium Rods are popular fire lighting tools used in Bushcraft and Survival skills and can be found in medical, military and emergency kits almost all over the world.
