" Found some time to reacquaint myself with my @beaverbushcraft mini fire steel pendant. It really is a versatile little bit of kit"!

"I got this fire steel from @Beaverbushcraft. I got this & a larger one from my lovely other half. The larger one has gone into my fire kit & I bought some leather to make this into a necklace. I never take it off. Gorgeous little fire steel with plenty of room to hold onto, making it pretty & practical.


"It's always  fun getting things from Beaver Bushcraft.I can't praise them enough! Wonderful people making wonderful things!"

We always love seeing photos of our old school style tinderboxes on Instagram, especially our Hudson Bay Tinderboxes. They seem to take on a character of their own as they build up a patina. Customers make them their own by adding in differnt Fire Steels and tinders etc, so each Hudson Bay Tinderbox will be unique .

HI Mark,

"I received my strikers on Friday. Thank you so much for the extras. I have made countless embers with the breathing dragon striker. It sparks well and is very easy to create an ember with. I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. I wish you more success with everything you have currently going on for you. I will definitely be back when need arises ".

Chris Jordon 

We were tagged into some great photos by a really good customer of ours called Chris Jordan (Facebook). He bought some of our mini traditional “flint & steel” strikers and added them to his own homemade tinderboxes. We totally love these and how he’s made them look very individual and to reflect his own taste, full of character and charm!

"Lighting a fire by producing sparks is possibly one of the oldest known methods of being able to create fire at will. And before the invention of matches, it was the main method of lighting fire for thousands of years. The materials may have evolved with modern steels and char cloth we use today but the technique would be familiar. This Beaver Bushcraft steel doubles up as a pendant, I like the idea of 'survival' jewellery. Things that can be very useful if you needed them but also fashionable items you can wear "

Always an honour when a professional company such as 'The Salt Box' use our products. Over the years they have bought one or two of our fire lighting items and recently they have added one of our Combo Fire Strikers to their own range of branded products.
