Excellent buy, I would not hesitate to purchase again.
The rod comes with an emergency whistle at the end of the paracord, and one end is a cap that contains a cotton ball for fire tinder, which is also waterproof. Since I accidentally tore the paracord out, I attached the whistle to the outside of my EDC bag.
Along the side of the rod are some pretty decent instructions for signalling for help, and some other useful stuff.
All in all, this ferrocerium rod is pretty good.
For the price and features it's too good to pass up.
The whistle is kind of weak, the chord is too short and flimsy (I recommend removing it and using paracord), and the "tinder" compartment can hold a maximum of 2-3 cotton balls. The orange rubber washer in the middle also likes to slip off if you're not paying attention to it.
The rod has a black coating that needs to be scratched away before you can get any good sparks flying, and the striker needs a good 45 degree angle to work well.
