TBS Ferrocium Rod Blank - Fatboy 12.5mm - Make your own Firesteel
The TBS Firesteel has been a phenomenal success and this is the 12.5mm version that is the same formula that is in our steels, just bigger. There is a choice of 2, the 9.5mm Army sized blank (available in store) and the super sized 12.5mm blank which is the same size as the steel in our Fatboy firesteel. They are ideal for making your own firestarter, simply handle it with your own choice of material or simply leave it bare for a more compact way of storage in survival kits.
We find they are ideal for adding to any survival kit and you can simply wrap it with paracord to fashion a handle when needed. The Fatboy sized blank also has a pre drilled hole so you can attach a lanyard and striker if you so wish.
The Army steels are a full size, they are 3 inches long (75mm) and 3/8" thick (9.5mm) and the Fatboy variant are available in 2 different sizes - 1/2" (12.5mm) thick and 3" (75mm) long OR 1/2" (12.5mm) thick and 5" (125mm) long.
