Our traditional BushKraft™ fire strikers are hand-forged from high carbon steel in a classic Nordic/Viking style that is simple and easy to hold. Traditional Flint & Steel is a fantastically simple fire-lighting tool based on ancient designs and is one of the oldest methods for fire-starting. When struck with a piece of flint, small particles of the steel are scrapped off that quickly oxidize in the air, turning into sparks through a process know as pyrophoricity. These small sparks can be "caught" with a piece of charred cloth that will grow an ember that can then be used to ignite larger tinder to build a fire. It is a process that takes patience and practice to master, but is an excellent skill to learn as an alternative to modern fire lighting techniques. Makes a perfect compliment to your existing fire-starting kit at the same time adding a traditional way firestarting. Each steel is hand forged from high carbon steel that will last for generations. 

Please note that the Flint & steel technique also requires a piece of natural flint and charcloth which are NOT included. These items are available separately or as part of our basic and deluxe kits.

We stand by all of our products with a no-hassle guarantee; if you're not satisfied for any reason we'll make it right.
