Sometimes known as ‘dragonships’ by their enemies due to their Dragon shaped bow. The long ships were characterized by their graceful long, narrow hull which was designed for speed through the water. We at Beaver Bushcraft have tried to capture the romance of the Viking long ship and our love of Dragons in these beautifully styled traditional Steel Strikers. The bow has the perfect edge for striking on flint to create an ember and although initially its looks tricky to hold, this type of traditional fire Steel is surprisingly comfortable in the hand. These make an ideal gift for any inspiring Norseman and are something a bit different and fun but still are still a serious piece of Fire Lighting kit.
The larger version of this traditional Fire Steel was actually featured in the National Geographic TV series, 'Bear Grylls Running Wild' (Season 5 )with Channing Tatum. In the footage Channing is being shown how to start a fire the old school way by Bear, using one of our Viking Long Ship Fire Steels. See Video clip below.
These mini Fire steels are not for the faint hearted, these are serious bits of steel that have been made exclusively by us at Beaver Bushcraft. Designed and made by us they are part of our new range of Fantasy Fire Steels. Although this Fire Steel can be used by beginners, we do advise some experience of using a Flint & Steel striker due to its’ smaller size.
An exceptional Fire Steel at any level of experience. Experienced users should get sparks on each and every strike.

Any other products seen in the photos are for dispaly only. This listing it for 1 x Mini Viking Dragon Ship Fire Steel.
