ParaRod - Paracord Sheathed Ferrocerium Firestarter Rod and Tinder Wick
(A ferro fire starting rod and flammable tinder stuffed inside a length of paracord.)
We've taken a 2+ inch length of FireCord containing a highly flammable tinder wick, then inserted a durable Ferrocerium Firestarter Rod. The Tinder and Rod are fully enclosed within the MilSpec paracord sheath. The tinder is water proof. This pairing of supplies allows you a field expedited fire when needed most.
Drop the ParaRod in your wallet, pocket, or EDC pouch. Strap it to your Bic or Knife with a ranger band.
Available as a Necklace for a wear option that adds up to 3 additional feet of highly flammable tinder wick material. Built as a single infinite loop where the rod is included with the the necklace and the loose ends are fused together. Oversized for a loose one-size fits all wear.
To get a fire, cut the end and remove the wick and rod. Fluff up the tinder then strike the rod with a scraper or knife.
Ferro Rod measures in at 3/32" x 2" and produces 5500 F (3000 C) sparks that will start a fire in the toughest conditions.
