Aurora Magnesium Firestarter

Patrick's Bushcraft & Outdoor Research

This idea isn’t new but I thought it was worth posting.  What I particularly like about the Aurora Magnesium Ferro Rod is the fact it stores in its own sealable container.  This might be handy if you live in an area where the salt-air is on the highside.  Not only that, but it’s got Magnesium mixed into the ferrocerium.  Check it out for yourself…

Here’s some more information of ferrocerium rods and magnesium…

Ferrocerium is a man-made metallic material that produces sparks in excess of 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit when it’s scraped with a rough surface or a sharp edge.
