Common  names include: sweedish firesteel, flynt rod or stick, flint rod or stick, fire striker, fire rod, spark stick, match stick, match rod and many others.
These are the exact rods used by the Matchblaster and Light My Fire Firesteel Note: These are not Magnesium blocks were you shave off a bunch of
shavings into a pile and then try to ignite the pile. That is different stuff, different technique. You CAN use the ferro rod to ignite a pile of Magnesium
shavings though.
Note from our supplier:
Consider this:
The US Military purchases our FireSteels.  The US Military has exacting standards - they are putting their lives on the line.  So you know beyond a doubt
what we sell is the Real Deal.
Here is why:
Rare Earths, the chemicals that make good sparks when you scrape a FireSteel rod, are very expensive. One way to make cheap firesteels is to skimp
on Rare Earth elements.    We DO NOT do that!

This is why these FireSteels are the best you can get.
We make fires.  Period.  Many millions of fires.
When you use our FireSteel you will get a fire because of the massive sparks the rod makes. The percentage of Rare Earth elements we put in our
FireSteel Rods are the highest you can get.

Premium FireSteel Rods
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Ferrocerium is a man-made metallic material that gives off a large number of hot sparks at temperatures at 3,000 °F (1,650 °C) when scraped
against a rough surface (pyrophoricity), such as ridged steel. Because of this property it is used in many applications, such as clockwork toys,
strikers for welding torches, so-called "flint-and-steel" fire-starters in emergency survival kits, and cigarette lighters, as the initial ignition source for
the primary fuel.

It is also commonly called ferro rod and most commonly of all, mistakenly, flint (particularly in cigarette lighters). As tinder-igniting campfire starter
rods it is sold under such trade names as Blastmatch, Fire Steel, and Metal-Match for survivalists and bushcraft hobbyists. Even some
manufacturers and resellers mistakenly call them "magnesium" rods. It is also known in Europe as Auermetall after its inventor Baron Carl Auer von

While ferrocerium-and-steels function in a similar way to actual flint-and-steel in fire starting, ferrocerium actually takes on the role that steel played
in traditional methods: When small shavings of it are removed quickly enough the heat generated by friction is enough to ignite those shavings. The
sparks generated are in fact tiny pieces of burning metal. In traditional flint-and-steel fire-starting systems (using actual flint), it is the tiny shavings of
the steel removed in the striking process that burn, rather than the flint. The sparking is a result of cerium's low temperature pyrophoricity, its ignition
temperature occurring between 150 and 180 degrees celsius

The mechanical properties of rare earth metals can be adjusted to optimize spark production. These strategies have been developed to make such
alloys more brittle:
Oxide - most contemporary flints are hardened with 20% iron oxide and 2% magnesium oxide.
Intermetallic - in the Baron von Welsbach's original alloy, 30% iron (ferrum) was added to purified cerium, hence the name "ferro-cerium". Iron reacts
with rare earth metals to form hard intermetallic compounds similar to those in neodymium magnets; such magnets are also known to generate
sparks quite easily when broken.
There were actually three different Auermetalls developed: The first was just iron and cerium, the second also included lanthanum to produce
brighter sparks, and the third added other heavy metals.
A modern ferrocerium firesteel product is composed of an alloy of rare earth metals called mischmetal (containing approximately 50% cerium, 25%
lanthanum, and small amounts of praseodymium and neodymium), plus iron and a small amount of magnesium

A necessity for any survivalist or survival kit, magnesium will burn from sparks from a firesteel rod or by sunlight through a magnifying glass or any open
flame source.
Magnesium shavings  are an excellent way to create a quick and large fire in an emergency situation, it will even burn wet.
Store magnesium in a safe place, away from open flames, sparks and sunlight.
Be warned magnesium burns at temperatures of over 5000 degrees F
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO EXTINGUISH WITH WATER!!! It will act like gas, fueling the fire and splattering the burning shavings everywhere.
IF YOU MUST EXTINGUISH USE ONLY A CLASS D FIRE EXTINGUISHER. If this is not available use sand or dirt and put it on carefully to avoid
splattering the embers.
Do not stare at a magnesium fire, it is like staring at the sun or a welders arc.

Note: Aurora Fire Starter is superior to all other fire starters on the market due to it's design features and function. Many cheap fire starters are not
sealed and protected from the elements when not in use but our Aurora Fire Starter is and that is vitally important! The reason being, all ferrocerium
or flint-steel type fire starters must be protected from the elements after first use to prevent oxidation to the point of disintegration. Our Aurora Fire
Starter will last you a lifetime! Our Aurora Fire Starter has many more desirable features please read below!

Lightweight and designed for outdoor adventurers and pilots who like to be prepared, our Aurora Fire Starter has even climbed Mount Everest (2SA
Model). Our Aurora Fire Starter™ will start a lifetime of campfires for most users. Two models are now available both equipped with a built-in guided
striking blade and ferrocerium flint steel rod with magnesium within its composition - yielding sparks as hot as 5000 degrees F. Your color choice of
either silver, black, or rescue red for both models.
The  440C model comes with our great 440C Fully Hardened Stainless Steel Striking Blade
installed that can be flipped over or sharpened if dulled.  The 2SA is equipped with our never-dull life-time Super Alloy Striking Blade (made
from tungsten-carbide).

Note: the only difference between the Aurora Fire Starter 440C and Aurora Fire Starter 2SA models is the striking blades - otherwise they are

To start a fire using our Aurora Fire Starter™
: 1.Place your fire starting material on the ground (plain cotton balls, dryer lint, toilet paper, char cloth,
birch bark, milk weed fluff, cotton wood fluff, burdock, or fine dry grass work great but any fine dry tinder usually found in the wild can be used). 2.
Open your Aurora Fire Starter™. 3. Scrape the composite flint steel rod(ferrocerium w/magnesium within its composition)with the built-in guided
440C Striking Blade (
note: for first use it may be necessary to scrape off protective coating on rod first with striking blade) while aiming the hot
burning sparks at your tinder and you have FIRE!

around your neck on a lanyard and if you are ever separated from your pack or knife you will still have everything you need to start a fire. The built-in
Striking Blade takes off enough material to start a fire but will not cause excessive wear, can be flipped over to reveal a fresh striking surface (Note:
our NEW 440C striking blades will yield thousands of strikes before needing to be flipped), or be sharpened if dulled. Also see our optional Super
Alloy Blade below. Our built-in Striking Blade is part of the unit and will not get caught on equipment, break off, or rattle while in combat, or hunting
