The Ferro Rod
The ferro rod is a small stick of synthetic pyrophoric alloy, it produces hot sparks that reach temperatures of 3,000 degrees Celsius when it is struck by something harder than itself such as steel. Apply the spark to dry kindling or something that will ignite well and slowly add bigger sticks to keep the fire going.
Waterproof matches are a great and reliable tool to have in the great outdoors, if someone is fortunate enough to get lost with waterproof matches on hand starting a fire shouldn’t be much of a chore, once the user collects dry kindling and sticks for their fire simply light your match on the strike pad and place in the base of the fire. If no strike pad try a flat rock.
