    CHEAP! Fire Steels

    Leather Stacked Fire Steel

    I've seen several examples of leather stacked fire steels and knives across the internet that people had made, and had been thinking of trying it out for myself.

    Deer Antler Fire Steels

    I was sitting around last night with a little time on my hands and wanting to do something more productive than watch TV. I had some extra fire steels and several deer antlers, so, I decided to make up a few fire steels using the deer antlers as the handles. Most of them are 5/16" x 3", with...

    fire making... my way!

    firemaking is, imo, the most important bushcraft skill to master... and the most difficult to really understand, because it needs A LOT of practice, and you don't even make fire every time you are outdoors. it doesn't matter how many times you read about making fire, you simply got to make it...

    FS - Flint & Steel Stiker, including 'Dragon' profile.

    It's been a while since I last forged a few strikers, so here's my newest batch of strikers made from the best source of high carbon steel available :) These strikers send off a flurry of sparks against a sharp flint, and are quite probably the best batch I have made for the purpose. A light...
