    I got my original versions of these fire rods in the Spitfire pocket kits but have used them so often that these replacements were very welcome and I have bought some extras to keep for when needed. They are high in the list of the most efficient ferro rods I have used, and there have been an awful lot of those. If you don’t have a good supply of Polymath’s waxed jute sticks then get plenty of those too, when fluffed up they will light reliably to a single spark from one of these rods, as will many other forms of tinder but the waxed jute sticks are also compact and highly water-resistant. If you need/want a ferro rod, you can’t go wrong with these.
