What a great idea! I purchased a number of small ferro units with holes drilled to thread paracord through them but replacing the toothpick with a ferro rod is a better idea!

This is a very interesting idea. It's rare that I'm tempted to buy into a Kickstarter, but I must say I am feeling some temptation here. Will be following closely.

Does anyone have an idea how many strikes we could expect out of a ferro rod of this size before it's spent?

Nifty. I MIGHT get in on this kickstarter. And I'm the guy who is very allergic to crowd funding


I"d rather it replaced the pen, I use my toothpick. For my teeth.

Everyone may turn green now. :P

It's been done as a mod for quite some time. This guy copied the toothpick shape out of a ferro rod.

14$ for three sounds reasonable enough. I'd take three, I never liked the toothpick anyway.

I'd just use it as a toothpick when I'm not trying to burn down the forest with it.

I have a very small fire steel that I put in a survival tin. It works quite well with the nail file of the Classic SD that's in the tin also.



It's very thin and it probably wouldn't take much to snap it in half. I question the durability of a fire steel the size of a SAK toothpick.

That's a good point, this super thin ferro rod would break very easily. I will be holding on to my money until I can see some real reviewers get their hands on these and put them to the test.

I would only use a Ferro rod in a diar emergency once I've drained all fire lighting resources, so hopefully it would be ok in a emergency but not a use all the time lighter  :tu:

Why replace the toothpick? I use that one quite often.
How about replacing the pen on plus-scales? Is there a mod, too?
Guess I have to do it myself.
Good idea though.

I probably use the toothpick more than the tweezers  :D I wonder if he will do one to fit in the pen slot ? I guess due to not many having plus scales he had gone with the toothpick option  :tu:
