    Hello folk. :) AVAILABLE

    I have for sale these hand made fire steel sets. The steel itself is forged by me from carbon steel and gives out beautiful sparks. I do pack it up in a leather bag, with some charred cloth and flint for a start. That makes it a complete set for your adventures in fire lighting.

    Specs:
    The steel itself is about 7cm in length and 2,5cm in height with around 4mm in width. They do vary from piece to piece as I do not clone them and never try to, so you can choose from smallish to larger one if you wish. If you want something special, just let me know and we'll work it out.

    Quantity: 10 at the moment.

    Price: 12 pounds a piece. P&P and Paypal fees included. Shipped worldwide.

    Have a great day! Andy.

    Hey Andy glad to see you back here. :)

    I was lucky enough to get one from the last batch. Trust me when I say this is the best small steel out there. Pretty sure it would spark if I struck it against a Marshmallow. also the small size means you can pop it in your pocket and still have plenty of room for other things. You won't regret buying one...great kit.

    The steels are on their way! :)
    I had problems with the charcloth I made, needed to make 3 batches to find out the old cloth I used some time back is now rubbish and do not catch sparks no matter what. So I dumped it and got some t-shirt in the bin. Works like a dream, everytime cathing sparks on first try. So now I'm sending out the kit's confident you wont sweat making them fires alight. Good luck and sorry for delays.

    Mine arrived yesterday and in record time. Great little striker, this is the second one I have ordered (for a friend)
    would recomend these to anyone wanting to try this method of fire lighting.
