All you fire lighting needs worn round your neck in this beautifully hand saddle stitched leather Neck Sheath designed by Shark Designs for Beaver Bushcraft. It comes complete with it's own Ferro Rod & Combo Fire Steel Striker.
It has an ingenious little hidden detail for keeping you Ferro Combo Steel Striker safe whilst worn around the neck. This leather Neck Sheath has been well thought out to not only look good but to be practical too. It is a well balanced design and supports the whole Ferro Rod rather than have it just dangling there on any old bit of leather. There is a small space at the reverse of the sheath to incorporate one of our steel 'Combo Fire Strikers'. The Striker it's self has a little leather tab on it so you can pull it out of its compartment with ease. The Ferro Rod has been made exclusive for us and has been fitted with a matching Leather thong.
The Ferro Rod measures 7mm in diameter by 73mm long and weighs in at around 68 grams. The total length with handle measures135mm. This particular Ferro Rod has a beautifully made wooden handle made from Oak and has been exclusivley made for Beaver Bushcraft. The large handle will allow you to hold the Fire steel firmly in the hand even when wearing gloves. These ferrocerium fire steel rods are the most modern and highest quality Pyrophoric alloy fire-flints on the market. They are very easy and safe to use, and will provide you with many thousands of fires if used judiciously. They are capable of producing sparks at temperatures of around 3,100° Centigrade, or 5,600° Fahrenheit, which is hot enough to ignite just about every kind of tinder that there is.They can be used to ignite a myriad of things that include Gas, paraffin or petrol stoves, Tinder Card, cotton wool, Amadou Tinder, shredded paper, birch bark, honey suckle bark, a whole host of other types of bark and Char Cloth.
The ‘Combo Fire Striker' is made from high carbon-steel that has been specially hardened to give it an extremely long life span. It should last the average Bushcraft, Survival and Camping enthusiast for many years of trustworthy service. The ‘Combo Fire Striker' has been specially designed to maximise spark production with minimal effort and technique, making it ideal for use by everyone from absolute beginners to tried and tested Bushcraft Old-timers.
The specially ground Combo Fire Striker's working edges can create a shower with ease because each of the exposed flat surfaces has been specially ground to give very hard and very sharp 90-degree cutting-edges. The 90-degree ground angles ensures that each cutting edge is just about as tough and durable as a cutting edge can get, so it will easily strike off sparks from any modern pyrophoric alloy Flint Rod, Swedish Fire Steel etc. Combo Fire Strikers have also been uniquely designed so that the curved main edge can be used for Traditional 'Flint & Steel' Fire Lighting when struck against a piece of Natural and sharp Flint with a piece of Tinder, such as Char Cloth or Amadou, placed against the striking surfaces.
