How to Use:

  • The rod has a protective coating from the factory, which can be removed with a few scrapes of the striking tool - now you are ready to strike for sparks
  • Remove the striking tool by pushing through the back of the handle
  • Place the striking tool onto the rod at a 45 degree angle, so the sharp edge will scrape the rod
  • Quickly scrape the striking tool down the rod, carving material from the rod
  • When striking, use moderate pressure and high speed when scraping the rod
