This Large Ferro Rod comes complete with an attached steel striker. The rod measures 2.5" with a 1.5" ribbed handle. Lightweight fire starting capability for survival and outdoor adventure.
This Ferro rod works great. It is easy to use and produces a good amount of sparks. It is a good size to carry while hiking or camping.
Makes sparks... nuff said. for the price you cant go wrong.
My son had no problem lighting the fire at scout camp with this. None of the other scout were able to start a fire with their other rods - sorry Bear G.
the rod IS 2 1/2 inches long HOWEVER .. the width of the rod is ONLY 1/4 of an inch .. maybe less BUT .. I think it is fine for the price
