    Firesteel Deluxe

    I customized a 9mm firesteel. IMHO the Swedish "Light My Fire" brand is by far the best quality firesteel out there. I've tried a lot of different brands...If you buy one be sure it is the "ARMY" model, the smaller "Scout" is too small to be handy. The shower of sparks is better on the 9mm...

    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...

    Inevitably, at every firemaking seminar I teach, somebody suggests using dryer lint as firestarter. According to some folks, you should carry dryer lint and a flint stick in your survival kit. My response is that I have tested and tried dryer lint, don’t carry it, and recommend you...
