4DB Survival Products | Quality Assurance and Testing | Fire Starting Gear

In this video we put 4DB products through a quality and assurance test before sending them out to customers. We test all of our various sizes of ferrocerium rod fire starters to make sure they are easy to use for kids and the elderly alike. We want to make sure that all age groups can use our products easily and start a fire if needed. We soak our products in water to also make sure that the ferrocerium will not break down and shred up during fire starting. Our ferrocerium is made of several different materials including Magnesium, Cerium and small amounts of iron. This combination allows them to be soft enough to through gobs of hot sparks yet hard enough to last a lifetime.
With these great qualities you can start a fire in almost any weather condition and potentially save your life if needed.
We also test our 4DB Fire Dust which is a combination of Osage Orange wood and Missouri fatwood dust. This combination allows for a fast ignition and long burn.
Our Wax Round fire starters are also a good choice in quick fire starting. We make ours from recycled news paper. These allow for a quick and convenient fire in almost any weather condition.
Our Extreme Weather fire starter is a 3 in 1 fire starter offering Missouri fatwood, Magnesium, and ferrocerium. This allows for fire starting in any weather condition. The Magnesium allows for a fast hot burn and the fatwood allows for a long lasting burn.
All of our product lanyards come with a jute twine inner strand that allows for a tender option if you are out and do not have a dry fire tender available. This is another great option and why 4DB is supreme over the rest of the fire starting products out there.

Ferrocerium Rod Torture Test – 4DB Elite Ferro Rods

We put our 4DB Elite Ferro Rod to the test with a series of grueling torture tests. This 7.79″x1/2″ Ferro Rod is exclusive to 4DB and can be purchased on our website link above. We put it through the testing to not only showcase it’s durability but also prove it is a piece of gear that can stand up to the harshness of nature. If you drop it, or your bag is dropped it will survive and continue to perform for you. If you drop it in your camp fire you will still have the time to find it and save it. These tough characteristics are crucial for any survival gear but for your fire starter they are paramount! Your fire starter is one of the main components of your gear and could save your life. Our unique testing proves our 4DB Ferro rods are not only efficient and great quality but they are also tough and rugged.
We throw it down the trail, throw it off a hill onto the rocks, drop it several times, put it through our conibear 110 and 220 traps to see if it would break and still it didn’t break! We then smacked it with a hammer and it did break after the 3rd hit. We finally put a torch to it and melted it to simulate a fall into a camp fire. It did melt after about 3-5 minutes. But you could retrieve it if you did actually drop it into the fire. After melting you can see the high amount of sparks that our ferro rods create. They are very much elite.
We tested our Elite Ferro Rod but our 5″x1/2″ Huge Ferro rods, linked below, are also of the same quality.
