Smallest Ferro Rod ?
What is the smallest ferro rod avalable ?
Tear apart a disposable lighter and get the "flint" out. It's a ferro rod and the smallest I know about.

As I am sure you know small comes with a price.

The price is hard to use and break easy.

I had several small ferro rods and they all broke. Now I only carry the thicker ones.

Just a food for thought.

The Coghlan's Plastic Matchbox used to have a small ferro rod on the bottom. I am not sure if the new ones have one or not.

What is your intended use for "... the smallest ferro rod..." and where/how do you intend to carry it??

Shared pain is lessened, shared joy is increased!

Communication is a Survival Skill! So is critical thinking!

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything—you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.

The Boy Scouts make a sparker that is quite small, length is about the size of a car key. It is made to hang off a key ring.

"But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee. And the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee. Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee, and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind."

--Ronald Reagan

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

I found a rather unique key chain lighter today. It is about 1.25"x1.00"x0.50". It has a container for lighter fluid with a screwdown cap that has a combination striker / wick at the bottom and a small ferro rod on the outside. I will try & get a picture of it posted. It was made in Hong Kong.
