This particular Fire Steel has been inspired by the various 'R' shaped fire steels that have been popular over the years. Over time extra curls and twists were added. This Fire Steel is slightly smaller than some of the others we do but is an ideal size for smaller tinderboxes, pouches or survival tins. Its a little tricky to use due to the size but still sparks beautifully.
