Easy to ignite a campfire, cookIng stoves and barbecue grill; using magnesium alloy containing 7 metals; could be used for up to 20000 times ;
can produce sparks of high temperature up to 3000 degrees Celsius (5500 degrees Fahrenheit);
produce bright sparks - can be used as an emergency signal;
can be used in rain and snow.

Lighters, matches and other fire tools are easily limited by severe environmental conditions such as humidity, wind, air pressure and so on.
Moreover, they are forbidden to be carried on vehicles in many cases.
Pay attention to the sparking rod using. In order to improve the efficiency of ignition, the surface protective layer and oxide laye should be scraped before scraping.
For damp kindling , you can scrape larger particles slowly on the kindling surface , making them together into a pile,
and then let the rod approach the pile of debris, igniting quickly with the sparks to produce concentrated heat which ensure reliable ignition kindling.
Ferrocerium rod is made from Iron, Magnesium and mostly of an alloy of rare earth metals called mischmetal with an excellent pyrophoric percentage : 98%min.
