'Not all those who wonder are lost'.......especially if you are wearing this amazing traditional styled fire steel pendant. This fire steel pendant has been cleverly designed to as a navigation aid to help you find the North Star. Made to scale, it can be worn around the neck or kept safe in a tinder pouch. It has an adjustable thong and a beaded detail has been added. Something a bit different for the explorer in your life.
A few notes on the Polaris……the degree markings on the right of the Fire Steel are degrees of arc in the sky. The arc distance is measured using the distance between the stars are just there as an informational guide, as is the ruler at the bottom - top scale is in 1/8 inches and bottom scale is in mm.
This Fire Steel is not for the faint of heart and is a serious piece of kit. It is quite chunky but will still fit in a Tinderbox or Tinder Pouch but also can be worn around the neck and still be totally functional as a traditional flint and steel striker. Used with Amadou tinder fungus or Char Cloth, the sparks created from this top quality steel striker will easily form an ember that can be used to ignite a tinder bundle.
Please note no Flint or Tinders are included in this listing but these can be bought separately from the drop down menus or perhaps think about adding one of our Starter Tinder Pouches or Tinderboxes to complete your purchase (also see drop down menu). Any other items seen in the photos are for display only. This listing is for 1 x Fire Steel only.
