Your Comments - Fire Steels
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

"Fast to arrive and excellent quality. Very happy with this. The attention to detail on the striker is amazing". Mathew Sumner 18/10/2021
"Fantastic quality (and works a treat) - very highly recommended - will be back " ! Cgct22 18/10/2021
Thank you. Tim 20 Jun 2021
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

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

- “Excellent seller would buy from them again”. Traditional Viking Dragon Flint & Steel Striker Fire Lighting. x-75 15/10/2020
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

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".

On the left is another great pic by Prepper In The Woods and gives this great little statement " Testing out some tinder from Beaver Bushcraft. Never tried chaga before with flint & steel before. Tried it and it works a treat, highly recommend their flint & steel sets and tinder" . Thank you guys for the great testimonials and for tagging us in on your photos.
Jan 2020 on Instagram and another set of photos of our Tinder Teaser. The one of the left is by Wildnwelloutdoors on instgram and the one on the right is by Prepper In The Woods: “As a striker for a ferro rod this guy throws some good sparks @ beaverbushcraft”. Always good to read our customer comments. Prepper In The Woods has also done a neat little video on his You Tube channel of the Tinder Teaser. He even found some extra uses for it that we hadn’t even thought of.
A lovely set of photos from Prepper In The Woods showing his collection of Fire Lighting esstentials, so great to see so many of them are from Beaver Bushcahcraft. Thank you so much for the tag on Instrgram.

Some more lovely feedback :) .....
Good morning, Thank you, i received the parcel yesterday and it was waiting for me at home after a day working in the woods, perfect! The steel is beautiful and bigger than i thought it was going to be, i like that. Throws some magnificent sparks. Pleasure doing business with you and will be a repeat customer for sure. We run a forest school and outdoor skills CIC, @elementaladaventures.org and will be looking to increase our equipment in the not too distant future and have my eye on plenty of your stock.. 🙂 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.
Thanks again and have a great weekend, Kind regards, Nick. 03/11/2019

Great. It got sparks first strike. 5 stars. Michael 27/09/2019
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

We were sent these lovely set of photos by James Ian David from "The Copper Pot Camp Site" based in Cornwall, showing off his recent purchase of one of our Andrew Kirkham hand forged traditional fire steels with tinder kit.
These lovely photos were shared to our Beaver Bushcraft Facebook page from Elizabeth Anne Woodall. They show her recent purchase of 'Drogan', one of our traditional Flint & Steel Dragon Stickers and one of our Starter Tinder Pouch Kits. Our Starter Tinder Pouch Kits are a great way of trying out samples of our Tinders that we have on offer without breaking the bank.
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
Impressed with the quality and the speed in shipping. I had purchased the Viking horse striker as a gift and my wife loved it. Thanks again Dave Woodington 24/08/2019

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
