Primitive flint and steels offer a more rustic and challenging way to light campfires. This simple, yet effective old fashioned firesteel and flint set is made from high-carbon steel which will work with any natural flint stones that you find in your garden, fields, etc. (flint not included). Each steel striker is approx. 3" in length.
How to Use a Traditional Flint and Striker:
Although more challenging than a modern firesteel, these old-time strikers are still simple to use, but take a while to master. When the carbon steel is struck against the natural flint stone in a downward motion, small red-hot shards of steel will be produced. When these hot sparks land on fine tinder, such as char cloth they will create a glowing ember which is the basis of any good campfire. These steels will last a lifetime, and allow you create many fires and happy memories, especially when teaching others how to ignite a primitive fire as our ancestors would have done.
