About our fireROD™ Refill Kit


Our fire starting tools utilize a proprietary alloy of rare earth metals called ferrocerium.  Some of these metals include Iron, Cerium and Magnesium.  When a ferrocerium rod is rapidly scraped, the friction created ignites the shavings producing molten globulars of burning metal.  It is these long-burning molten globulars of metal that make a ferrocerium fire starter so effective at catching other materials afire.


To replace an old rod, simply unscrew the rod and screw in the new rod.  Ensure the rod is a snug fit into the rod holder.  


This fireROD™ refill kit provides a 2.4" long threaded replacement rod and one extra o-ring. 


This fireROD™ refill kit provides a 3.1" long threaded replacement rod and one extra o-ring. This length is useful for larger knife sheaths. 


An optional drop of blue or purple loctite will help retain the rod if it becomes loose.

  • Up to 10,000 fire-starting strikes! 
  • Made in the USA

  2. Exotac Fire Rod Refill 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2013

    I purchased the larger fero rod because it fit better in my knife sheath. I have used the rod several times and it has performed very well. The longer length allows me to place the rod right on the tinder and scrape with the back side of the tip of my knife blade, similar to a push cut. I have owned and used many different brands of fero rods, and based on my experience, I would say this rod performs as well as any on the market. My only minor criticism would be regarding the size of the storage capsule. Nice concept, but in my opinion, the capsule would be more useful in a larger size. Thanks Exotac for another excellent product!
