Thousands of years before the development of the modern day match and lighter, the well-practiced hands of our forebears would have deftly used Flint & Steel for making fires in mere seconds. Making a fire with Flint & Steel is both traditional, a very dependable and, having been around for thousands of years, has well and truly stood the test of time, it has an honesty and simple elegance that is hard to beat. In recent years, there has been a huge resurgence in this long-established and reliable traditional fire lighting method, making it ideal for anyone who wishes to use a classic style traditional tinderbox for creating time-honoured spark based fires such as Re-enactment societies, Bushcraft enthusiast and Survivalists etc.
