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")
Weight: 4.2 oz (6") / 2.2 oz. (3")

I really like the 6 inch, It throws a very good hot spark.
Ordered 3 and 6 inch to try. The 3 inch is almost to small, however, it works very well and I like it. It packs nice and small.
Another well crafted piece. You do need to fray the ends out to the single fibers. Easy to snuff out. Very pleased.
By far the best fire starter I have ever had. Will never recommend or buy another brand again. The shower of sparks is truly impressive and will be helpful in difficult conditions.
works great-a little large-but I will solve that-have plans for this one
Throws sparks very well. A little short for my hands. Should have ordered the larger fero rod.
Great piece of kit ! Huge sparks !
This was a Christmas gift for my Grandson who loves camping and the outdoors. He really appreciated it. I was impressed with how well made it is. I'm sure I'll be returning to purchase additional gifts in the future.
loved the hexa ferro rod
used it to light a fire in a windy day and i cant stress the wick rope enough it was so good
The Hexagonal design is genius to me. I got good amount of sparks quite easy.
Great product and gear service from Uberleben!
Love the Hexa fire starter. Works perfectly right away!
Love this product. This arrived in quick order and I am very pleased.
Best fire starter i have ever bought.
My fire-starter works great, and will be an essential for my survival pack as I head into the woods.
Bought 3 different brands of fire starters to try. First test wasn’t even close. First brand failed to spark, second brand sparked and even created a short ember. The Uberleben started a fire on the first try. Great product!
My wife got me this as a Christmas present and I love it. It takes some practice but it is totally worth it.
Great fire starter & great customer service. Fire starter throws sparks like a champ. Was sent the wrong fire starter; contacted customer service & then sent the correct order very quickly. They also let me keep the item they had first sent. Highly recommend these products.
Great fire starter! The Hexa Fire hexagonal format produced optimal sparking for easily starting fires. I would strongly recommend the Tindar Wick and Bellow Set for reliable and one-stroke flames, especially if natural tinder quality is marginal.
These are remarkable tools.....love them.
I started with the 3/8” round because a friend was making me a sheath with a 3/8” loop. I really like that one so I purchased a short and long hexa. I have the shorty as a gift and tested the long one today to start the fire in my stick stove. It worked great. I prefer the long one, but if weight is a concern you can always get the short version.
I have tried many and I like this one the best.
Very nice ferro rod. Love the edges for getting good sparks. Not too hard and not too soft overall. Makes excellent sparks. Easy for my young daughter to use as well. Highly recommend!
Great little fire starter and stove
Just got firesteel yesterday. Went out today and was easily able to light the tindar wick in 2-3 attempts (you can see still quite a bit of black coating on firesteel). Not much need for matches or lighter with this set up! Thanks for the quick shipping to Canada.
I purchased several rods from outdoor suppliers. Most were ok, but took a lot of work and precision.
I went on line looking for better ones and luckily found your products. I started with the 3" rods, and they work great, especially with dryer lint. I recently purchased two of the 6" rods, assuming that the extra length will make it even easier.
I have one of your ferro rods in each of my winter coats, one in my glove box in my truck, one with my camping gear, one in my emergency bag in my truck, and a few extra for gifts.
Best ferro rods out there.
I have grand children in Alaska that hunt and fish 11 yrs and 15 years old. and if they were to become separated from their father or some thing happen I wanted them to be able to start a fire for heat and cooking sent them both and their father a little of every thing. they love it I can't say enough good about your products I love them and have most all of it
Thank you. Grandma Diane in Oregon
Large, takes up a lot of space. These things are only good if they're in your kit when you need them.
I have a nice little flint that takes up little more space than a match box. Been with me for many fires and likely for many more.....
Love it . Put a deer antler handle on it !
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.
