>On some comments there people complain not getting any sparks so I guess there's really some kind of quality issue with some.

Generally, it's not that there are quality issues. It's that people are unaware ferrorods can have different hardnesses. The harder the rod is, the more difficult it will be to get sparks off of the rod. You will need to scrape faster and press harder, but the rod will last much longer as a result. You probably have noticed it is incredibly easy to scrape dents and wells into that Light My Fire rod, and that's because the rod is about as soft as they come. But the result is that you can flick sparks off of it with ease.

If you have confidence with your ferrorod technique, or are ready for a better challenge, it is absolutely time to graduate to one of the harder rods. You get more mileage out of them, and you can actually use them in more different ways than the softer rods. I bought two of these last year, and I have been a very happy customer. They will undoubtedly last me for many, many years.

Yep that's the one I use. Huge and inexpensive - think they are still 8 dollars. I use a bit of gorilla duct tape around the end for some grip.


There is also another one that has a hole for a lanyard for a couple bucks more - but if you have a vice and a drill you can put a hole in this one easy enough to run some paracord through.


This is the firesteel

I do these for myself. The good news, they are cheap and easy to make, I'm going to link to the various rods I have used so far here, the 4.5mmx75mm, the 8mmx80mm and finally the big one, 12.7mmx127mm. All of these rods have performed well for me, I personally prefer the larger diameter, although the 8mm might push it a bit. I have some 6.5mmx75mm rods on order, expecting to see them in the new year.

The next part is a bit of antler. For these, I picked up a bag of antler tips off of Etsy, I think the bag of 50 tips was less than $20 shipped. So right around $2 to make the 8mm size.

I did these a little different, and tapped them both the antler and the fero rod. I recommend that if you have a tap and die of the right size. I used JB Weld on these, and am happy with the results, any good 2 part epoxy should give you a good bond.

One of the things I like about this hobby is being able to make good equipment, if you decide to try, don't hesitate to ask questions, I'll answer the best I can.

One alternative that could help you get around the brittleness problem would be to forge/file a hard edge onto part of the brooch (not sharpened like a knife), and incorporate something like this, maybe attached with leather or something. That way you could still use the brooch to start a fire, but won't risk it breaking.
