The ferrocerium rod generates a large quantity of sparks. It is locked in the barrel of the Lightning Strike with a set screw and can be replaced or rotated when one side becomes worn. The barrel design contains and directs the sparks so they are concentrated at your tinder. A slot or groove in the barrel allows you to slide the striker along the Ferro rod, but at the same time it provides a stop so your striker does not disrupt the tinder pile.
The striker, when not in use, inserts into the barrel for storage. It is held in place with a shock cord. attached to the cap. No chance of dropping the striker in the snow or loosing it on the ground when its getting dark.
