    Anyone know if the ferro rods sold by Harbor Freight are solid ferro or just a coating over steel. Their price is very reasonable if they are solid.
    Thanks

    Yes, it's the one I mean, actually I already have several of them, and they do work but, (for lack of a better word) wondering if they wore out after a period of use, ie: ,scrape all the coating off over time and make it useless, or if they are solid ferro or misch metal, and likely to have a reasonable lifetime.

    Well, the reviews from verified buyers are all positive. They look inexpensive enough to beat up and see. I may pick a few up.

    There are some internet reviews on it, some say it's Ok others not so happy with it. I bought several for my BOB and will try it out in the near future.
