Dragon's Head Flint & Steel Striker for Traditional Fire Lighting

“Beautiful item, great quality and value. Very fast delivery. Received some extra goodies that was not expected but much appreciated. Would defiantly buy from them again.”   Selkhetegypt 10/02/22

Traditional Fire Lighting 

Hello Beaver Bushcraft Elves,  My package of fire starting goodies arrived today and I’m just delighted with everything!The exquisiteness and quality of the mini tree of life leather pendant is just adorable and the beauty and quality of the dragon fore steel is exceptional.  

For the extra fire lighting bits and pieces you added, I’m very grateful. As a youth worker myself, this will all come in handy when I meet up with  our local lovely, bushcraft youth worker up here in the Scottish highlands, 'Wildcat Bushcraft' and share these wee treats with him so that young people can explore the fun of this firelighting technique in the Spring and Summer.

Most likely, I’ll be in touch for more fire Strikers. :) Warmest regards & thank you again!  Jacquie Steel  21/01/2022

 3-in-1 Fire Dog Striker  

Good afternoon, last week I ordered a 3-in-1 Fire Dog, through eBay I believe. You couldn't have known that it was for my sons birthday but he was absolutely delighted to open it and discover that you had added some amadou and flint too. He is building a 'survival kit' as part of a Scouting task. I just wanted to say thank you, so much, for such thoughtfulness and generosity.

Thank you. Tim  20 Jun 2021

Mini Pocket Sized Tinderbox with Mini Fire Steel

Hi, It arrived today and I have to say I love it all! I currently have a "C" shaped striker and it is so hard to hold.  I have searched for a long time until I came across your website.  The dragon striker is tiny but so easy to hold and use.  There is enough surface for my fingers without whacking my knuckles on the flint.  I really like the leather covered striker too. It is such an innovative idea and works really well.  The chaga is cool!  I never thought it would smell like leather. LOL Thank you for such nice products.  I will be sure to spread the word around over here in the states for you. Sincerely,  Linda Gehrke 10/05/2021

Traditional Flint & Steel 

Hi, I received the package the other day, just wanted to say thanks.  Half a dozen strikes on the steel and I had an ember, fantastic!  Just shows you when you have the right tools, what can be a struggle becomes effortless. Many thanks, Damian 15/03/21 

Traditional Flint & Steel 

Thank you very much for a correct and timely order.  I am extremely happy with your products.  Steel is beautiful and really sparks.  The flint is better than I thought it would be…the quality and sizing of the rocks is really nice. Thank You, Moses.  19 /04/21

Traditional Flint & Steel Striker   

After playing with the flint and steel  I got the other day I just ordered 4 more and some flint . Your product is top notch .You should be very proud of your team.

Traditional Flint & Steel Striker   

Dear Beaverbushcraft, I received the package with the firesteel today and was also glady surprised to get a piece of amadou with it. This goes well into my brass flint and steel box or ‘tondeldoos’ as we call it here in the Netherlands. It looks like I finally obtainded a proper fire steel, as one ordered from the UK some years ago hardly gives a spark. The Nordic or Celtisch design (?) is really added value. Looking forward to making a flint and steel fire soon in the sequence of primitive or traditional fire making I am practicing currently; including successful bow fire making. It’s great fun and a good set of skills to have. 

Anyway, thank you for the great service and attention. Looking forward to purchase from you again in the future. Perhaps a Hudson bay tinder box, which looks great. Cheers, Erwin van Maanen, EcoNatura – Onderzoek voor Natuur, Landschap & Duurzaamheid,  Science for Nature & People l Thinking ecosystems.15/10/20 

 A nice little mention on Facebook from Kenny Knoble of his recent Beaver Bushcraft purchase.

 Kenny Koble photo of his beaver bushcraft fire steel

Hello.  I just wanted to tell you how much I like my thor's hammer striker.  It's the perfect size for striking.  The only thing I'd modify is making the hole be 8mm to accept 550 paracord.  I also really like the amadou it takes a spark amazingly.  I had only used charcloth, poplar inner bark and hemlock twigs for the most part because it's plentiful.  Flint is handy as well as it does spark better than local quartz.  First purchase.  You are on my radar now. Sender: Brother Paul Brenton Benard 26/09/20  

Saw this awesome conversation on the Bushcraft Trading Post Facebook group page what some people had to say about our traditional Fire Steel Stikers.  How lovely!

woodsmon on Instgram also did a short video of one of our tiny pendant strikers and challanged several of his followers to see if the could create sparks using a small piece of Flint & a tiny striker.  "Tiny Spark Challenged myself. Inspired by finding this tiny flint shard on my walk today. Pendant fire steel from  Beaver Bushcraft always around my neck and a little char cloth".

We run a forest school and outdoor skills CIC, and will be looking to increase our equipment in the not too distant future and have my eye on plenty of your stock.. πŸ™‚  I will be using the steel today at a workshop i am running for another organisation in our area today and i am sure it will get plenty of positive feedback.

Triskele Pendant /Steel Striker 

Helen and Mark, The Triskele sword pendant I got from you is gorgeous and of excellent craftsmanship. I love it . Thank you so very much. I was also impressed at the fast shipping. I did not expect it to arrive as fast as something ordered from a UK seller.   I've been looking for a Cross pendant striker for me and to gift my kids and nephews. I found several online, but to be honest, I loved your craftsmanship. Could you do a Cross pendant striker?  Again, thank you, Jose 15/09/2019

Just wanted to say I am really really happy with the steels! I was looking for something like a necklace for a while, even ordered something elsewhere (which was not what I hoped for) before I found your site. And now with these small ones, they are really pretty, not heavy, perfect for a necklae, and they work fantastic! They spark very easily. So thank you very much! Next time I know where to order ;-) Iris 26/08/2019

Traditional Flint & Steels Fire Strikers

Dear Sir/Madam.  

I want to start my email to you apologizing for not emailing you earlier as I had wanted. So please forgive me in my late email to you and I truly am profusely sorry. 

The reason why I am so sorry is because, I was so taken back not only by the speed of you emailing me to tell me a matter had be sorted out, but I could tell that you genuinely cares and kept me well informed.  Now this leads me on to my second reason why I am so sorry for not emailing you earlier.  

From my weighty well wrapped parcel I thought is this my order?

As I opened the outer packaging I was overwhelmed by how well each and every item was separately wrapped. The brown thin paper wrapping was such a nice touch, almost like everything was gift wrapped. Your presentation on how I received my items to me, was done with caring hands and a thoughtful mind. The labeling, the choice of cord and cards attached to the steels, the note inside, the whole lot. I literally had to sit down and have a look at each item, carefully handling them as you did when you wrapped them for me. The workmanship on those steels are amazing, really perfect workmanship from a skilled craftsmen. Then I discovered that you gave me a few extras. WOW thank you sooo much. I really am looking forward to trying out the new Tinder's and matches. 

I still can't get over what a personal professional service you are providing. It's taken me a whole week to reply to you, literally as I have been lost for words to tell you just how happy I am. Thank you so much and I really do mean that.  Best Wishes, Rew Fisher, 20/01/2019  

Dragon Fire Steel  

Mark and Hells. Just a not to say the Fire Steel arrived today and I have to say I am so impressed, the weight, quality forging and the sparks it produces if just amazing. Thank you so much. Regards  Buzz 07/04/2018.
