Ninety-nine percent (99%), who try this challenge just won't have the skill to create an ember let alone a fire from our mini-fire steels! The mini ‘C’ Striker (style A) is the larger of the two options and maybe 10 % will succeed. The other style, the mini ‘Viking’ Striker (B), we have rated this a 5% chance of successfully creating an ember with the Amadou.
We believe that this Mini Tinderbox kit will really test even the very best of you and will be all but impossible for the vast majority! However, if you are a ‘One Percenter’, you will probably be able to create spark from ANY fire steel in the world, and if you can’t then it simply is NOT a fire steel … period!
What is the ‘Mini Challenger’ Traditional Mini Flint & Steel Tinderbox?
The Mini Tinderbox kit is a fully functioning traditional Flint & Steel Tinderbox that is made from the very best materials to the highest spec, and because it is made by us you are guaranteed it is made to last a lifetime. Supplied with:
One of our finest Mini Fire Steels from our collection.
Amadou Tinder: An Amadou disk and some Amadou Fluff.
A choice selection of our very best smaller Flint Shards.
A small nest of our best Jute Tinder.
All contained in a 49mm Mini Stainless Steel tin.
Believe it or not, as much love, attention and skill has gone into the making of our tiny, mini fire steels as in our larger versions. Don’t let their small scale deceive you, they are just as hard to make, and finish, maybe even harder due to their diminutive size. All four fire steels, in the ‘Challenge’ Tinderbox kit, are made from the very best High Carbon Steel we can source. Each Fire Steel has been designed and hand-crafted by us, so that we can guarantee that they are made to the very highest standards … anywhere! They will not break if they are dropped, and are guaranteed, to produce showers of super-hot spark … Guaranteed!
How it all happened:
The idea of this specialised Mini Flint & Steel Tinderbox kit was to set a very difficult ‘Challenge.’ A challenge that very few would succeed in conquering. No only because it has not been done before and is fun to do, but to allow the growth peoples’ skills in this very Traditional Flint & Steel way of making fire. We thought that it would be a fantastic way to separate the ‘Men from the Boys, and ‘Women from the Girls’, so to speak!
We surprised Mark, our Workshop Elf, General Dogs Body, and CEO, at his desk. And challenge him to put his money where his mouth was, so to speak. There were no rehearsals, he was filmed in real time, with no fancy editing, we just put him on the spot, as it were, with a camera, the Mini-Traditional Flint & Steel Tinderbox, complete with its four Mini Fire Steels, some Amadou and Amadou Fluff, a few small pieces of our best flint shards and nothing else. Can you beat him? Want to try the challenge and increase your skills??
