    People always debate on which survival skill is the most crucial to master. That conversation may go on forever as you can imagine. What we can all agree on is that being able to start a fire is a must-have skill in a survival situation. We see it’s importance on TV shows & even the movie, Castaway with Tom Hanks, hammers that point across in a very dramatic way.

    Not only is knowing how to build and sustain a fire imperative but having various methods to achieve that job is also a must. For most of us, our go-to fire starting sources are matches and lighters. They are easy, convenient and usually in abundance when we are in our basecamps and homes. But what happens when you are in an emergency situation and your lighter is waterlogged & your matches are soaked? Luckily, there are other viable means of starting a fire.

    One of my favorite methods of starting a fire is with a ferro rod; aka flint. In the boy scouts, one of the kits that all of us had at camp was a flint & steel kit. We would use the piece of steel to scrape or scratch the flint causing it to ignite or spark. By projecting it onto a good piece of tinder, the spark will catch and you will have either an ember or a flame depending on your tinder source. You would then insert it into a nest or whatever your fire building method is.

    Recently I was sent the Überleben Zünden Traditional Bushcraft Fire Starter. There is a lot of bang for your buck here and it works really well. The cool thing about it is that it feels really good in the hand. The wooden handle gives it a natural feel that I never got from other ferro rods. It comes with a lanyard, a cool piece of steel with various, useful, features and some jute twine to get you started.

    It is a really well made ferro rod. If you want to add a great fire starting source to your survival kit, this Überleben Zünden Fire Starter may be a great choice for you. As always, perfect practice makes perfect. Be sure to practice with your various fire starting methods; Don’t just collect the gear. When the time comes.. you want to have the confidence that you can start a fire in any situation; because you practiced for every situation.

    I’ve purchased numerous fire steels over the years, but not until this one did I have one that worked very well. With the others I could only throw sparks, but with this one I can place the rod directly on the tinder and scratch back and forth a couple of times and generate a nice shower of sparks directly on the tinder for a quick light. I am very pleased and recommend this fire steel! The wooden handle and neck cord are a nice plus!

    Great product! Gives off a mighty spark that is super hot! I was able to ignite wood chips with it this afternoon. They wood handle on it is great. Feels really good in the hand allows a great grip for getting a ton off friction across the rod.
