Introducing the Hexå. We’ve been plotting this move for awhile now. We got tired of waiting for someone else to do it.Our proprietary hexagonal ferro profile means 6 flat sides; or more surface contact -- and more surface contact means more molten ferrocerium thrown whenever you need it.
Flat profile design, for greater control and greater efficiency. Approx. 8mm of direct striker-contact on each side
1/2" (12.5mm) thick Sånft-korr ferrocerium rod yields 20,000+ strikes
Works at any altitude, in any weather... even wet.
Includes full grain leather lanyard for multiple securing options, and 6-function multi-tool scraper.
Available in 2 lengths (3" & 6")

6" Hexa - WOW is what I hear everytime sparks shower several feet. Next thing I hear is "let me try!" 100% success from all ages getting Tindar Wick(Uberleben) to catch fire; grins from ear to ear. I had to order a couple more, maybe for gifts, maybe for me.
Great product! I was very pleased with the sturdy construction and attached striker. It sparks heartily the first time and every time making it easy to get a flame started. I highly recommend it.
Throws off a nice shower of sparks making it very easy to light your tinder pile and get a fire going quickly.
The size is perfect, you can by the 5 dollar grocery store model that is one step above useless, or a hex steel,that once you learn how to use it ,the spark is incredible.this product is the best i have ever used in the Alaskan bush.we hunt remote,and there are no 7/elevens so the product has to work.
Easy to use a good tool if you are in woods you need this
Works great! Made my first fire without matches, lighters, paper or fatwood.
Yet another excellent product from a great company. Looking forward to utilizing it in the field. Great job, team.
I think that this is a really great product, but I had a somewhat hard time removing the protection covering from the ferro rod before use. I had to break out some rough grit sandpaper to remove the the covering to expose the metal. Other than that... it throws some wicked sparks. Thanks for making a great product.
I recently purchased a 3 inch Hexa. I own several other Uberleben products so I knew it would be good even before it arrived. What I didn’t expect, was how much more efficient the flat surface would be when producing sparks. I have a Zunden Pro which will always ride on my knife sheath, but my new Hexa will stay on or near me forever. It’s TRULY the best ferrocerium rod I’ve ever used! Now to purchase the 6 inch big brother! Grab one of these (or both) while they’re in stock... you won’t be sorry.
I love everything about my products from Uberleben. The product quality and finish is amazing. Also, the Zunden Fatty 1/2” is the perfect fit and matches beautifully with my Benchmade Bushcrafter sheath. I am super pleased with my purchase.
The Uberleben 3 inch Hexa is seriously the best ferro rod EVER! You get the same amount of strikes as the 6 inch version but it is more compact. It is the perfect size for an Altoids tin fire kit and it’s just amazing. I live in a very suburban area and I might never need to use it in an emergency situation, but I never leave the house without it. Everyone should own one of these.
It surpassed all my expectations. Amazing quality works like a charm. Can’t wait to use it more for camping
As a pilot, always looking for lightweight functional additions to my ditch bag....the Hexa is just the ticket!!
The Hexa Fire starter is awesome!
Looks like a welding rod in use!
The fire starters you Guys create are the best around period. I have owned at this point at least one of each you make some closer to 3. The hex style I own 3 of each, These things are amazing. They create the best sparks whether cold and wet or dry and dusty. Hands down best. I bought each one to test for the best that works for me and The Hex works amazing.
It's not what I would write home about. Seems more difficult to get a shower of sparks than the round Uberlebens. Mem my son in law and grandson all agree that we like our round Uberlebens better. They seem easier strike form a distance. The hex seems to work better if it is placed on the surface base, near the tender, using short and quick strikes with the striker. not a failure, but just not as easy to use as our round ones, in our opinion.
I love it. It is just what I wanted as my fire starter. It is large and sends out many sparks. It's shape helps to facilitate this.
This is a great tool that I love to use. Not only in the backyard, but also on camping trips in the mountains.
I love this ferro rod. I already own the Zunden which I carry everyday. The extra length as well as the flat sides make this the most effective and easiest to use fire starter i have ever owned.
Works like a charm. Love it!
high quality ferro rod. I'll buy more when they are back in stock. The 3" size would be great for survival tins. Please fix the right-handed scraper though.
I’ve been using the “Hex” ever since it was first offered for sale. My first one was grabbed by one of my grandchildren because he liked it so much and I’ve ended out buying them all their own Hex because they are one of the best. They throw more sparks then you will ever need to start a fire and are long enough to easily handle. I’ll be ordering more as gifts for family and friends. Thank you!
I absolutely love my new ferro rod and couldn’t recommend it more! This is my first tool of it’s kind and I love the quality and ease of use. Certainly a camping must!
Right onTaking it on road trip and camping
I just want to say, I was a little skeptical of the hexagon shape at first. But after watching a couple of youtube videos, I was completely onboard. I first ordered the three inch size and I love it. Too bad I didn't go ahead and order the six inch also at the same time. Now they're out of stock and I must wait for restock. Great fire steel, I easly recommend this fire steel to everyone, and personally I like it better than the round ones! Chasly
Much Bigger and Much more Hot Flying Spark than my old friend "Swedish Firesteel"..100% Satisfied..
So. Many. Sparks.
The hexa rod works very well indeed!! I am very pleased with this purchase. Thank you.
Of all the ferro rods I've ever used - Exotac, Mora, Light My Fire, TOPS, UCO, Wazoo - my Überleben rods are my favorites. Ferro rods can be too hard or too soft to be consistently effective. Überleben seems to have hit the sweet spot. Whether I'm using the provided striker or the spine of one of my knives, I'm regularly able to create a shower of bright, hot sparks. More importantly, I'm able to direct them where I need them. For a burly ferro rod that's easy to use in any environment, my choice is the Hexå. My Hexå lives on the emergency pack that I keep in my car. This thing is a beast! As far as ferro rods go, this one is easy on the eyes thanks to the leather lanyard. The only change that I made to it was to wrap some electrical tape around the spot near the cord eyelet. That way I can have some extra emergency adhesives and improve my grip at the same time.
The Hexa's design is a work of genius. Because your striker goes along a flat side the approximately 1/2 inch diameter Hexa sends out the same amount of sparks as a one inch or bigger rod. That's exceptional performance. The 3 inch Hexa fits just about anywhere you would want to carry it. I have one in my knife sheath and keep one EDC in my pocket. I would recommend this to anyone. I am going to be doing a YouTube video review of it soon.
Awesome tool to have in your kit!
I love it bought 2 gave one to the brother in-law and he loves it too!!
Five stars from me and him!!
The fire starter works like a dream! I am keeping it in my bug-out bag.
Nice compact tool that will work anywhere, probably. All you will need is the tender and dry fuel. Seems ta, Throw more starts than a welding electrode. LOL! I am glad I got it!
Plenty of spark to get the fire started. I am going to get the larger one also when it gets in stock.
Great firestarter. Throws more sparks than any other I have tried. Highly Recommend. !!!!
This is an amazing product! I have it tied to my Swiss army knife and it's always with me. The customer service is equal if not better than the product. I'm a customer for life.
Much easier to throw down sparks with the flat sides and the length greatly helps with holding down tinder on the end.
works flawlessly, very high quality items, super fast shipping and great service. I can’t wait for a new purchase again.
Thank you so much !!
This fire starter is awesome. I love the length and the flat sides. It produces a lot more sparks then my traditional fire starters. Paired with the tindar wick and Bellow it is no problem getting fires started even in wet conditions.
I really enjoy using this product of my bic.
Love the flat surface the hex provides. Throws a lot of spark for an easy start.
Work good. Love it
All the products have been top of the line and the fire rope was an added bonus!!
Social distancing across the fire pit today. The whole family fighting over who got to use it first!
Service was incredible. Quality is too. Great quality and will consider buying other projects again. Great company, I'll say it again Great Company!!!!
I an always ruining out of matches.. with this fire starter . I now have no problem of starting a fire. Thank you.. well worth the money.
I'll promising you that i'll will show more picture of thos magical stuff from you. So far i'm impressed.
I spend a fair amount of time in the Rockies trekking remote areas. A reliable fire system is essential and this one is the best!
Hard to spark at first, need to s rape the black off first,still trying,not sure if it works as good as the video. Let you know
Tons of SPARK !!!!
Great light, plenty of spark, a camping must!
Even a old bugger enjoys new toys
Very good mix of magnesium in the ferro rods , throws good hot sparks ,ta thanks for a good quality
Love it love the hex great craftsmanship
This is one piece of gear that my hunting partner and commander-n-chief of our expeditions...in short my wife...absolutely loves. Simple to spark...when combined with the tinder wick it provides a quick fire in virtually any conditions. After tinkering with it a bit...she purchased one for her Dad, and made sure that I had the neck version as well. Well thought out and practical...Nichole and Jim. adventurers and hunters in tandem...
Great product, fast delivery.
all the gear that i sent for has been top shelf. tindar wick & bellow, tindar refill pack, kuksa cups 8 & 12oz, ferro rods pro3/8",fatty 1/2",hexa 6",lumen glow jn the dark,dad hat,and bothof your stoker flatpack stoves. cant wait to order a kessel bush pot.
I have several of these now but the Hexa is the best and the easiest to use. This one is a Christmas gift for a camping buddy who can’t build a fire for sh*t. If he can’t make it work with a Hexa, there is no hope.
Fire on the 3rd strike with a brand new rod. Awesome quality! Thanks Uberleben!
I bought this as a back up fire starter to my gear. How ever after the first time I used it the simplicity and precision was remarkable. It is now my main source for ignition and my other fire starting gear is taking a back seat to this product. It does exactly as it is supposed to. Thank you
Worked great on my solo campout in the rain.

I’ve been looking a long time for a good fire steel and these are just awesome!
I bought the two Hexa strikers, 1 6”, and 1 3”, for gifts. My curiosity got the best of me so I tried the 3”. The massive sparks that was created in 1 strike was enough to convince me that I made the right decision! I had previously purchased a round striker for myself which I love as well!!!
Best spark and easiest fire striker I've ever used!!!
Haven't needed to use it yet. Bought for one reason only. Hope I never have to use it.
Get the 6 inch
It is a gift and has not been used yet.
Works very well just needed to get the black coating off after that it really starts firing excellent sparks.
The rod itself is good. Get the paint off and it creates great showers of sparks. But the striker is lousy. Its very hard to get good sparks using the striker it came with, so I use a separate knife for making sparks.
I haven’t used it yet but I love that it isn’t a tiny thing that would be impossible to use well.
Works great, even in the pouring rain !
Just got these I love them so much I ordered another one. The hex shape makes striking a lot easier. These will throw an unbelievable spark I have spent a lot of money on fire rods over the years and I use them a lot this is the holy grail.
Haven't had a chance to use it love the quality of it very nice thank you
Twice what I expected to receive! An excellent Deal!!!
Fast shipping.Product works as promised,showers of white hot Ferrocerium.I've had other fire starting rods which don't compare to this Hex rod..Great product!!
I LOVE it. And my son in law is going to be happy to find it in his Christmas stocking!!!
Hexå Fire Starter the best fire starter when used before! Doesn't problem to use and really good spark! Thank so much! i hope your shop have a long live and make more good items !
The length is just right and the hex shape makes it so easy to hold in the hand. It also throws a lot of sparks too.
The first few strikes, I thought I was had. It did not seem to work as easily as in the video. It must have been the initial coating, because the next time, it sparked just like the video. I have used it to light my wood stove twice now. Dryer lint on newspaper works great!
Love the hexa fire starter sorry can't upload photo for some reason. this one will definitely be
going into my fire starting kit alongside other means of making fire.
exactly as marketed... worked great right out of box....
The rod is amazing! 6” long and tons of sparks. Couldn’t ask for more.
Solid and sturdy. Feels substantial.
This is a great product and highly recommended.
I gifted this and because there were no instructions, the recipient thought it was defective. He had never used one before.My husband showed him how it worked (ex-Boy Scout leader) It took him a while to get the hang of it, and he wished the leather lace was longer.
This baby throws some serious sparkage!!
Combined with the Tindar you are covered!
Best of a few I've tried..very well made..will buy more for gifts and a must have for camping or a bug out bag..fire starter is the best and I will buy more...
2 strikes and cotton ball and paper was lit and game over for those twigs from there.
Nice fire steel. Really throws a large shower of sparks.
This is the best fire starter that I have ever tried. It throws very hot sparks . Start fires fast and easy .
Must have for your kit!!
I got the hex style ferro rod and it works great couldn't be happier!
I was curious about the new Hexa ferrocium rods so I bought a 3" model to test. With the striker it comes with it throws decent sparks. Using a Speedy Sharp as the striker it throws sparks like a much larger ferrocium rod. It's going into my EDC PSK.
5 stars. I will post a picture when I can get someone to take it for me. I am going to do a review on my YouTube channel as well.
This thing is perfect for EDC! I am surprised by how well the new design works. Definitely two thumbs up from me!
After many years of using ferro rods, Hexå is now my go-to! This ferro rod is on the softer side, so it's always easy to get a shower of sparks and I love that. Speaking of sparks, they are further exaggerated by the flat sides, which create a lot more sparks than a traditional round ferro rod. Such an easy 5-Stars for this product!
this looked like a beautiful piece to make even prettier. so I attached an antler handle to it.
it's SEXY now
Great product, now I just have to practice and get better using it, small, doesn’t take up any room at all
