    Where to buy FerroCerium steel rods

    Hi. I have just started making knives and I'm trying to source various bits and bobs. Does anyone have any tipis on where to purchase FerroCerium rods or fire steels for starting fires.
    Cheers

    Re: Where to buy FerroCerium steel rods

    This web site is often mentioned, there have been group buys in the past.

    http://www.firesteel.co.uk/


    He sells them with and without handles, so you can match them to your knives.

    Hope that helps .

    rockarmsrob' it's kind of frowned upon to tout for business with your first post, members are allowed to post in the classifieds after 100 posts! Why not introduce yourself in the New Members thread, I'm sure you'll be welcomed and will enjoy it here.

    Welcome to the madhouse!

    Just out of interest does your post mean you're closing down your ebay sales?

    That's a shame Rob' I take it they just aren't selling at the mo, pretty much like everything else! Hopefully things will pick up again and people will have got over this current scare. I'm sure most dealers / traders are concerned right now and the reduced speed that even the really top knives are going in the classifieds seems to reflect this, anyway hang around and enjoy there's a great bunch on here!

    Correct.
    Sorry Rob, you cannot sell anything here till you have 100 posts.
    If you happen to have any left by then, fire away.

    Quick pointer for anyone looking for steels in alternative sizes
    Survival topics sells a few; from almost thin enough to sew with (not pictured)to mini-whackin' sticks that would probably out live their first owner even if used every day!
