    "Dragons' Breath" (as you all have started calling them) Kits
    Basic Flint and Steel Fire Starter Kits

    [​IMG]

    These are proving very popular! And going fast!

    Simple, functional and of a design based on archeological finds.Hold one of the pieces of supplied flint in your left hand with a sharp edge horizontal and facing away from you (like pointing a knife away from you with the blade on its side with the cutting edge facing right)
    Hold a piece of the supplied char cloth on top, about 1mm from the sharp edge, using your thumb, with one or more fingers supporting the flint underneath.
    Hold the steel in a pinch grip with one of the long thin edges pointing out.
    With a "snapping" wrist actionstrike the steel onto the flint so that it scrapes its length down the flint to scrape off steel shards which are the sparks you want.
    The sparks should land on the char cloth and start glowing.
    Put the flint and steel down, wrap the charcloth in a tube of the finest slice of birch polypore you can slice off the fungus supplied(or sandwich the charcloth between two or more slivers...)hold this carefully or use the jaws of your leatherman pliers/two twigs, and blow steadily. the polypore should soon burst into flames.
    I am confident with a little practice you will get the hang of the technique.
    All kits are tested before despatch so I am confident in them working.
    If you cannot get it to work I will happily refund your dosh or send you a replacement set.

    Comprising a piece of steel, taken from selected High Carbon Steel files and ground smooth on the edges for safe and effective sparking, selected pieces of natural flint, pieces of Charcloth and slices of Birch Polypore Fungus, all contained in one of my size 1 pouches (colours vary) all for the new price of only £10 inc P&P.
    (Contains no actual Dragon. Less than 1% fat. Made in an environment that definately contains nuts - me!)
    Colours sizes and shapes vary - this photo is of a typical set!

    New stock just made!
    Now only 9 sets available

    With a "snapping" wrist actionstrike the steel onto the flint so that it scrapes its length down the flint to scrape off steel shards which are the sparks you want.
    The sparks should land on the char cloth and start glowing.
    Put the flint and steel down, wrap the charcloth in a tube of the finest slice of birch polypore you can slice off the fungus supplied(or sandwich the charcloth between two or more slivers...)hold this carefully or use the jaws of your leatherman pliers/two twigs, and blow steadily. the polypore should soon burst into flames.
    I am confident with a little practice you will get the hang of the technique.
    All kits are tested before despatch so I am confident in them working.
    If you cannot get it to work I will happily refund your dosh or send you a replacement set.

    Comprising a piece of steel, taken from selected High Carbon Steel files and ground smooth on the edges for safe and effective sparking, selected pieces of natural flint, pieces of Charcloth and slices of Birch Polypore Fungus, all contained in one of my size 1 pouches (colours vary) all for the new price of only £10 inc P&P.
    (Contains no actual Dragon. Less than 1% fat. Made in an environment that definately contains nuts - me!)
    Colours sizes and shapes vary - this photo is of a typical set!

    New stock just made!
    Now only 2 sets available - made some more since the Moot :)

    These are proving very popular! And going fast!
    So I made some more....

    Simple, functional and of a design based on archeological finds.Hold one of the pieces of supplied flint in your left hand with a sharp edge horizontal and facing away from you (like pointing a knife away from you with the blade on its side with the cutting edge facing right)
    Hold a piece of the supplied char cloth on top, about 1mm from the sharp edge, using your thumb, with one or more fingers supporting the flint underneath.
    Hold the steel in a pinch grip with one of the long thin edges pointing out.
    With a "snapping" wrist actionstrike the steel onto the flint so that it scrapes its length down the flint to scrape off steel shards which are the sparks you want.
    The sparks should land on the char cloth and start glowing.
    Put the flint and steel down, wrap the charcloth in a tube of the finest slice of birch polypore you can slice off the fungus supplied(or sandwich the charcloth between two or more slivers...)hold this carefully or use the jaws of your leatherman pliers/two twigs, and blow steadily. the polypore should soon burst into flames.

    Hello John,

    what is the size of the striker?

    how much would the shipping to Germany be? And how can I pay?

    Thank you.
