These may look different from that of a modern firesteel, but our traditional flint and steels have been used by our ancestors to create fire for many years. Simply strike any piece of flint that you will easily find in the garden or in fields with this steel to create primitive sparks. Primitive fire strikers are Ideal for use with char cloth and natural tinder such a hoof fungus and thistle down.
Primitive Flint and Striker
Each of our traditional firesteels is made from high-carbon steel which will soon form a natural and rustic looking patina. Our old-style firesteels are great fun to use with scouts or on bushcraft courses and form an important bushcraft skill for all to learn. Use these steels with natural tinder which can be found wild, or ethically sourced tinder is available from us.
