    Milius - package arrived safe this morning.

    Absolutely first rate gear. The whole kit - pouch, steel, flint and char cloth is spot on. Old fumble fingers here had no trouble generating good sparks straight off.

    Thank you for a good product and great service.

    No commercial link etc etc. Anyone looking at these - I doubt you'll be disappointed. Whole deal and delivery from Lithuanian was a darn sight faster than many UK 'deals'!

    Just had a go and with some jute twine it went up pretty much instantly, well chuffed!
    I think i have found my new method of fire lighting!

    Just to let you know, I've played about with some flint found near Romford in Essex...it lies in abundance on the ground around Havering park - getting great results! Have found the darker the flint, the better the spark :)

    Keep Calm and Camp Out!

    Although someone said, that color means little, I would 100% agree with you, the darker the color the better the sparks.

    Alone now.
    Finally got to the office and picked mine up today. WOW!! after a couple of strikes I got the charcloth going. This is far superior to my old steel from fleabay. It's a perfect pocket size fire kit. Andy sells a great flint and steel. I recommend this fire kit to anyone who wants a pocket size kit so you're never without a way to make a fire.

    Thanks Andy, much appreciated.:You_Rock_

    **EDIT**

    Okay so I'm not the most observant one out there. I just noticed the jute twine closing up the pouch...makes great tinder. :)

    Can't wait to get mine as everyones feedback is as positive as it could be, i have one from fleabay too it's shaped like a bulls nose ring, i can get fire with it but it does as much flintknapping as it does create sparks onto my char cloth and is not my favourite tool to create an ember by a long way
