WHAT'S THIS "3 ROD" SYSTEM ALL ABOUT?
**All 3 RODS are pressed 3/4" into an Aircraft Aluminum Machined Barrel.
Directions for use:
1. The two silver solored rods are magnesium. When ignited, this material will burn quickly at a temperature of +5000 degrees. Use a knife to shave a small amount of magnesium into a pile (approx. the size of a nickel) immediately next to or on top of the tinder.
2. The dark colored rod is Ferrocium. When scraped with a knife this rod will produce a very hot spark (+1000) degrees). Draw the knife edge (or other sharp metal tool) perpendicular (at a right angle) firmly down the entire length of the ferrocium rod to ignite the pile of magnesium shavings on the tinder.
