Used with Amadou tinder fungus or Char Cloth, the sparks created from this top quality steel striker will easily form an ember that can be used to ignite a tinder bundle. Each fire steel has a hand made, hand forged look, which makes these particular fire steels very appealing and they have a very rustic and honest feel about them. Each fire steel measures approximately 77 mm x 45 mm, but each steel may vary slightly due to being hand forged. Its an ideal size for keeping in a Tinderbox or a Tinder Pouch.It comes complete with a piece of natural Flint that has been specially hand knapped to be used with our steel strikers plus some natural 100% Char Cloth.
