Works better than expected!!
We love the fire starter told our family about it we plan to order more. Great company to buy from
Works great! Strikes easy, produces a shower of sparks. Can't wait to use it on my next backpacking trip!
Great product, well designed and balanced. Throws a consistent even spark even in wet and windy conditions. I use it daily and pack it with me everywhere l go working in wild country.
This works! I just order a Tindår Wick and Bellow and a Zünden Fire starter. As soon as I got them I had to try them. I prepped the end of the wick bu rubbing about an inch of it between my fingers and then I gave it a go. I had the wick burning on my second strike (the first sparks missed). This is easy to use and it be very useful. I’m planning to buy more set of fire starters and wicks to live in my different first aid kits and with my emergency supplies. I definitely recommend this product.
Best place to get you Ferro rod. Very good quality and fast shipping.
Haven’t had a chance to use it yet but I’m happy l got it!
I like this one best of all of the ones I got-works great-throws good spark-easier one to use
Works perfectly for starting fires, showers of sparks !
I have the fire starters as gifts to 12 men in our family for Christmas. I also got myself the tin kit to carry in my bag. Everyone was excited to get a cool and useful gift. Plus men/fire... what can I say? One guy almost burned the house down though. He had no idea there would be a huge shower of sparks! He struck it in the living room while we were opening gifts. Nothing caught fire, fortunately!
Great ferro rod. Throws great sparks that stick around long enough to ignite tender.
My boyfriend loves this tool and cannot wait to use it!!
I love it, I bought 3 one for every vehicle.
Really good fire starter!
I hunt, like to learn new things, gave me a chance to teach my 10 yr old son something outdoors ( get him off the games )
First time buying a ferro rod. Was excited to test it out. Worked beyond what i expected. Easy to use. Stared a fire right away. Will definitely be buying more. Thanks for a great product.
Works as intended
Amazing product .... works like it’s advertised. Happy with my purchase. Thank you !
Great customer service.
Love this product! Success right out of the package on my second strike!
Excellent quality. Quick shipping. What more does one need? Great company.
Have had other Ferro rods and these are by far best I’ve used.
Once the coating is scraped off (3-4) scrapes, it throws off an incredible amount of spark with each scrape. The tool provided works great but you could use a knife too if you had to.
The fatty is fantastic, along with the tinder and bellows kit I got. It's a great time when you can light a fire quickly. Thanks for the prompt response and services!!
I researched the best fire starter rods and by far the Uberleben kept coming up as the one to go with. Better spark, ease-of-use... an impressive fire starter!
I plan to buy another one from them.
This is an awesome product I carry it on me anytime I am in the woods. Never leave home without it!
Works great really nice spark wish the smallest size was just a tad bit smaller.
Large amount of sparks on each strike; I will recommend to others.
Works great for a wood sauna starter
I bought the emergency necklaces as gifts. My friends love it! I am looking forward to camping this spring and trying out my fire starter.
Great products and great service. Highly recommend their products.
Showers of sparks, solid in the handle so far, but you DO need to learn how to prep your tinder if you are out in the wild. Spend some time learning, you certainly don't have to lean into it like I was doing initially...
The rod is about half as long as the picture shows but it's long enough to get a good shower of sparks out of it. It'll last a lifetime.
Very high quality. I am very satisfied.
Great tool that I recommend to my survival students and colleagues. I use one personally during extreme conditions. I call it the reassurance an outdoorsmen, hunter, adventurer or bushcrafter needs.
We had a blast with this firestarter!
Great product fast delivery and good price.. What else is there?
Amazing product! I bought this for my husband and he absolutely loved it! It works great!
Best I’ve ever owned makes a fire ever time
Comes with no instructions on how to use the product. You're kind of left on your own to figure it out. A sheet in the package with some suggestions would cost much and would have been much appreciated.
Got this for my brother for Christmas and he says it works great!
Amazing. I actually got this for my grandson, since he’s into primitive skills, archery etc. It works as well as any lighter on good tinder. I was so impressed I’m buying one for myself. Quality product, can’t say enough good things about it.
Haven't had a chance to use the fire starter yet, they look great and arrived quickly
Great sparker! Quickly lit my stove with it.
We tried the fire starter on Christmas Day and it worked awesome!!
Nice to hold, shower of sparks ⚡️
Does produce a shower of sparks
Best I have found
Great gift. Was used immediately.
You know how we say bigger is better well let me tell you better wear a welders goggles when you strike the fat boy there are such a shower of sparks awsome stick. Thank you
Top quality. The only thing that I would love to see is a wood sheath that has a rubber o ring at the enter point to hold snug against my rod to protect it and a place to put your company name. Am proud to carry it you should be proud to put your name on it.
Gave these as stocking stuffers for Christmas. They were a BIG hit. Everyone loves the look and feel. Also gave everyone wicks to go with.
Gave this as a xmas gift along with a tinder wick. He loved it.!! He's always hiking or camping or just always outdoors. It's a great unique gift for someone. Quality was excellent and shipping was fast. My only complaint is I wish it came with some kind of description booklet. But other than that very happy with purchase.
It is a great fire starter. I only wish I would have purchased the largest size. The smallest of the 3 sizes is too small in the hands of the men I purchased it for. They love it though!
I love it! Gave them as gifts to my brothers and dad. Came quick and in good condition in the mail. Sparks super well, I don’t know what I’m doing but it was easy and fun to use. Definitely recommend this product! I want more!
Works great. I am glade to have it with me, and love the extra features of it.
Great product, easy to use
I love it! The best scraper I have used!
I gave this as a Christmas gift. It was a real hit and will be used many times in the coming years. Thank you for a unique and purposeful gift which was most appreciated by the giver and the receiver!
Each of us got a Zunden Fatty Fire Starter in our stocking for Christmas this year. That afternoon we had all successfully started a fire. The Zunden is easy to use and fun too. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for an easy and dependable way to start fires. It will always be in my backpack from now on.
Used in conjunction with the tindar, probably the best combo ever to start fires. Lights the tindar with one try and you would think I was a fire making genius!
It was the perfect gift. The sparkes that came off of it was great! Really high quality product and enjoy how long the rod is to get ample sparkes. Highly recommend.
Perfect stocking stiff for my Outdoorsman sons.
Perfect. Just what I needed, a larger ferro rod. My next purchase will be the Nordic bowl and sooob.
great tool for teaching fire lighting,, striker could use more mass, great price..
Super high quality! Great craftsmanship!!
A great tool to add to anyone’s outdoor adventure toolbox. I look forward to using my Zunden “Fatty” for many more years to come. Highly recommended.
sparks like crazy! easy to fix to molle on backpack ...
great fire is done with great items.
Works anywhere and always
Bought as a gift. Can't wait for my son to open and try!
It looks beautiful, well made and a perfect size.
Service from the company was excellent, product is very high quality and well designed for use in the field. Highly impressed all around, great purchase experience.
I haven’t had a chance to learn how to use this yet but hope to soon. I love the quality of everything I have purchased so far and will be buying more!
Wanted to have a fire in the mountains before the snow got to deep to get up there. Broke in the new rod, after getting through the coating, it throws an impressive spark that dances around. It got my tinder going and as I was blowing it into a flame I noticed it had my standby kindling pile smoldering as well! Looks as great as it works.
I bought it for my 13 year old Grandson. He loves it, practices everytime he gets a chance.
Outstanding performance on Ferrous rods.
The Zunden starter is great and definitely a step up from the thin rod I was using. It throws ample sparks and having the scraper corded to it is super handy. The paracord lanyard is good quality and long enough for easy use of the tools. I have no doubt this is going to be a good addition to my pack.
Went out into wet woods, used my Silky Gomboy to process some firewood and then in combination with the fire wick ... perfect fire!
My wife and I hike a lot in the Central Adirondacks of New York State. We practice survival techniques every chance we get compass orienteering, temporary shelter building and fire starting. The Zunden fire starter is perfect for our bushcraft kit. The starter is compact but surprisingly effective in shaving cedar of fat wood and sparking a quick fire with a big shower of sparks. We're so satisfied that we just ordered and received another to keep in our vehicle in case of an emergency. Great product at a great price.
You know what the Fatty looks like. This is what it does. One strike on a Tindar wick.
You get too close to the rod sparking this...you’ll get burned. Shower, indeed. Invest in Fatness. You’ll be happy you did.
Only been practicing with it, but plan to use it in near future.
Impressive spark and ease of use
It works great
Striker onto Tindar wick - two amazing products that definitely add some more manual fun into fire craft
Product came as described. Throws sparks well.
It throws Sparks well. Had some difficulty getting natural tinder started. Probably due to inexperience. Not bad to have on hand. Need the larger one.
Great firesteel, you just need to remove the black coating and it will trow lots of sparks with the least effort. Lightning fast shipping by Überleben.
Great ferro! Throws more heat than my other rods. Probably last forever as you don't need as many strikes as other rods; did I say this thing is fat! Buy it!
With a variety of sizes, it couldn't be easier to carry your fire starter. The included edge makes it easy to scrape off a good amount of starter. Now get that edge perpendicular to the rod and strike that rod. The shower of directed sparks quickly ignites the scrapings which if placed on kindling will get your fire started quickly. Carry one with you at all times...just in case.
Perfect!!!! Large enough to use in rain and I expect I'm going to have it for quite some time. Great quality, I'd definitely purchase again.
Great tool for any backpacker or emergency kit during a disaster.
Wanted to give this some real use and abuse out in the field before reviewing. Quality product! Trad size is all you’ll really need in the bush - even on an extended journey. First lighting of the Tindår wick will go easier if you rough it up a bit to expose the fibers.
