Introducing our NEW range of 'Titanium' Fire Streels.
Exclusive to Beaver Bushcraft, designed and made by us in the UK.
Although these Fire Steels are not technically 'Fire Steels', because they are made from the metal Titanium and not from High Carbon Steel (HCS), we will still refer to them as 'Fire Steels', and not 'Fire Titaniums', which just doesn't sound right!!!
To make the best use of our Titanium Fire Steels, we suggest that you need to have a modicum of experience with traditional 'Flint & Steel' strikers, since our Titanium Fire Steel strikers require a slightly harder, and a more confident strike to obtain good sparks. The sharper the edge of flint the more successful the strike! The more you use these fire steels the more they become worn in and easier to use. You will also notice that they are much lighter in weight than a standard High Carbon Steel striker because Titanium is a much lighter metal than steel.
If you get your striking technique right, you will also find that the shower of sparks that are produce from our Titanium strikers are white-hot and will ignite a greater variety tinder, than will a standard HCS Fire Steel. You can actually hear some of the sparks ‘Crack’ as they fly through the air.
We recently launched these at the Bushcraft Show 2023 and to our surprise they have really taken off! Video to follow……
This traditional styled 'C ' fire steel striker is used for traditional ‘Flint & Steel’ fire lighting and can be used with Char Cloth or even Amadou or Chaga tinder fungus. The sparks created from this striker will easily form an ember that can be used to ignite a tinder bundle or a traditional Sulphur Match. Designed by us at Beaver Bushcraft, this traditional ‘C’ steel striker is one of our most popular Traditional 'Flint & Steel' Fire Steels ever. The Classic ‘C’ fire steel Striker has been around since the 2nd century and is one of the most common shapes for using in traditional ‘Flint & Steel’ Fire lighting. Sometimes known as a ‘three fingered striker’.
Please note no flint or tinders are included with this item but can be purchased separately from our other listings.
